Appcelerator is a great tool that allows web developers to create native applications for multiple mobile and desktop platforms. Recently they released their latest Mobile SDK, and best of all, they have now released a completely new IDE for creating mobile and desktop applications.

Earlier this year, Appcelerator acquired Aptana, with the aim to create a version of their IDE suited for use with their SDK. Before this Appcelerator lacked an IDE for SDK, and included only a project manager, built using their own SDK, that could be used to create the boilerplate of any project.
The newly released Titanium Studio adds numerous useful features for Titanium developers. First of all since it is an IDE, features such as project management, syntax highlighting, and many other features available in Eclipse, come by default. What Titanium adds to the mix is code completion support for the Titanium SDK features, testing on device simulators, packaging applications for mobile and desktop, and an auto-updater for the Titanium SDK.
