Expedite your Titanium Development with Boilerplates and Modules


Appcelerator Titanium is quickly becoming the top choice for building cross-phone apps, using your existing set of web stack technologies. As such, over at CodeCanyon, we've launched a new category, specifically for Titanium modules, boilerplates, and more. The following 10 items and tools have the potential to rapidly decrease your development time.

1. App Ratings Module

App Ratings Module

Developed by the CEO of Appcelerator, Jeff Haynie, The AppRating module is an Appcelerator Titanium iOS Module which implements a nice app rating dialog to the end user after repeated usage of your application. The dialog will suggest the end user rate your application on the iTunes marketplace after a configurable set of repeat usage patterns such as number of uses or number of days of usage. When the end user selects to rate your app, it will automatically open iTunes into your application to the rating screen.

The goal of AppRating module is to encourage your satisfied user’s to rate your app.

4. Trace for Titanium

Trace for Titanium

Do you develop apps with Appcelerator Titanium? It’s a great tool to create apps for iPhone and Android, but the lack of a debugger makes it difficult to find errors at runtime. You can use Titaniums logging function, but you have to remove all of them after you found your bug, because otherwise the flood of logging messages will drive you crazy. Trace for Titanium shows error messages and call stack only when an error occurs. And you can even use it to find bugs, when your app is out in the market.
