Appcelerator gets cloud savvy with Cocoafish buy

10 FEB 2012

Software tools company Appcelerator has acquired mobile app infrastructure provider Cocoafish, allowing it to add mobile cloud capabilities to its Titanium development platform.

Cocoafish has more than 25 cloud-based mobile tools for increasing user engagement. It will allow Appcelerator to add messaging, push notifications, social, location and cloud storage capability to Titanium.

Appcelerator plans to integrate these services and offer them as Appcelerator Cloud Services early in the second quarter of 2012.

SDKs for Android, iOS, JavaScript and REST will mean native app and mobile web developers not using Titanium will also be able to access the cloud services and add them to apps without writing server code.

Appcelerator CEO Jeff Haynie said nearly all developers using Titanium have been manually adding cloud services for some time, but that the integration of Cocoafish will be a significant benefit. “Cocoafish is by far the most complete mobile cloud solution, and combined with the Titanium Platform, Appcelerator is delivering everything a developer needs to build rich, connected applications," he said.

Since the beginning of 2011, Appcelerator has added integrated development environment capability through its acquisition of Aptana and HTML5 support with the acquisition of Particle Code.
