Likelihood to Recommend

Axway Appcelerator

I do not think I can recommend Appcelerator at this point due to the issues with Appcelerator studio, lack of good debugging support, lack of thorough documentation and forums and the additional cost overhead of licenses. The pros are just that it allows for cross-platform development. However, Cordova does a much better job of it and excels at places where Appcelerator currently struggles

It is best to have one point of contact on your side to talk with the project producer/manager on Mobify's side. Schedule a weekly status call on your project if you are doing a full build or co-dev build and express any concerns or issues as soon as possible so there is more of a likelihood that you can get things fixed before your deadlines.

Cons

Axway Appcelerator

  • It is very hard to debug your code. Breakpoints never worked for us even with the latest Appcelerator Studio and we had to rely on log statements to debug.
  • There is a need to purchase licenses from Appcelerator to run the code on a device or for creating iOS distribution builds. This is an additional cost when you have already paid for Apple developer program for precisely these things.
  • If things are broken due to lack to support between Appcelerator and a new iOS version, you pretty much have to rely on a new version release from Appcelerator for the issue to be fixed.
  • It is difficult to create enterprise distribution builds where the distribution certificate is owned by your organization's team and you only have a development certificate for the same.
  • The forums on developer.appcelerator.com are seldom helpful. It is hard to find solutions for issues even on other forums like stack overflow.
  • Documentation needs to be improved.

I think their team is the most flexible when it comes to our account and tailoring our contract for our needs. They are able to use their knowledge to do user testing and create the best site for us. They also are able to understand the needs of different teams in our company from our CEO to our customer service reps and creating the best experience for our online customers.

Alternatives Considered

Axway Appcelerator

Appcelerator makes you write a structured code whereas Cordova just packages your code and you are free to structure it. Appcelerator bridges your javascript code with native code and that would make it run faster than javascript code in Cordova apps. However, with recent mobile browsers, you would hardly notice any performance deterioration with Cordova apps. Appcelerator struggles with issues related to its IDE, debugging, documentation and forums and additional costs. Cordova makes it much more simpler to develop cross-platform apps with better developer support, debugging support, documentation and forums minus the additional costs.

Return on Investment

Axway Appcelerator

  • We were able to build and deploy a mobile app with Appcelerator. However, the platform still has issues and does not cover our needs as much as some of its competitor like cordova does.
