iPhone Cocoa App development with JavaScript

Hello, I have neglected my blog since September although there have been some blog-worthy events like N900 meetup (plus Droid experience and new Fennec demo. See the videos by Tnkgrl from the link!), California Data Camp, release of Net2Streams Pro (the streaming radio app for Palm WebOS I helped writing) etc… Well, I keep microblogging on Twitter almost daily basis so follow me if you’d like!

One of the interesting I have been independently doing is that writing an app for iPhone with JavaScript, and this time, not an web app but a “native” Cocoa app. Yes I said a native iPhone app in JavaScript! But how? -I used this excellent open-source platform, called Titanium by Appcelerator! Without bothering Obj.C or Java, Titanium allows developers to write iPhone and Android apps with the familiar web technology.</>

So, as a test run, I have created the iCuteoverload app for iPhone again. (Originally, I made the web app for iPhone, using iUI in 2007)
I will not release this app on AppStore -not because of the technical issue but the agreement with the business decision. (Yes, this app contents are not mine and copyrighted!) But I should be able to show the video capture as a demo to tell you what Titanium can do for web devs like me!
