Benefits of this technology
- 60-90% code reuse across device platforms;
- Direct access to native APIs using Hyperloop;
- Delivers fully native apps for rich user experience;
- Immediate support for each new OS release;
- Seamless integration to existing continuous delivery systems.
Appcelerator proved to be great in accelerating time to market for new apps. In many cases, we can achieve a very high code reuse ratio and reduce not only the initial cost, but also ongoing maintenance. We have also successfully used it for prototyping where it helped us to smoothly move from a functional prototype to releasing a MVP, and beyond to scalable platforms.
Where we would not use it
However performant, we would not recommend it for game development. In some cases, the lack of modules can swerve us into native route (this however has been greatly reduced by introduction of Hyperloop).
