Even though Titanium generates multiple platform apps with a single code-base and facilitates the maintenance and management of mobile projects, it still lacks a design interface tool, and for this reason, ForgedUI was created to improve what has been holding back a large portion of productivity gains on Titanium SDK.
"Instant ForgedUI Starter" will help you to learn ForgedUI and cross-platform code generation with Titanium, get started building your first app, and how to use the drag-and-drop design tool to create the best user experience within your app, following practice guidelines from Apple and Google.
ForgedUI makes Titanium Mobile App development quicker and easier by providing a visual drag-and-drop interface that allows for quick screen design and Titanium cross-platform code generation. This book explains the ForgedUI generated code and every available ForgedUI feature by walking you through a specific set of clear and practical examples that will help you to take advantage of Titanium and ForgedUI integration seamlessly, quickly, and painlessly.
