The reason why I am interested in learning more of Icenium is that I am considering establishing a consultation company/software house that would specialize on implementing mobile business apps initially as a sub-contactor for larger ISV and later serving end-user customers directly. I am evaluating, very much on higher-level right now,  development tools that:

-Enable one skill-set and source code to be targeted on most popular platforms (iOS, Android, WP) without need for separate tools for each target platform
-Enable developers to work on the highest possible level of abstraction
-Increase developers productivity and speed of application development
-Ease the integration/mobilization of legacy applications
-Enable off-site development and distributed teams
-Support team development
-Support versioning
-Is reasonably priced
-No runtime fees
-No vendor lock-in

I have looked at Titanium and PhoneGap, for example, and would like to hear your opinion on how you compare to them. I would also like to learn more on your product road-map and future plans.

Best regards,

Markku

Hi Markku,

Thanks for trying the Icenium BETA.

At a high level I would summarize the differences between Icenium and Titanium Studio like this:
 - Icenium does not require any SDKs to be installed locally
 - Icenium is a complete end-to-end solution based on HTML5, JavaScript and CSS

WRT build.phonegap.com I would say that Icenium does a lot of things and one of them is a cloud hosted build service that compares to build.phonegap.com

Our road-map is largely driven by user demand but some of the things we are working on at the moment is publishing to app stores, team collaboration, adding additional target platforms.

We have not locked on pricing yet but it will most likely be subscription based - per user per month - with some level of free and probably some tiered offerings based on functionality.

Regards,
Clemri

I know you haven't made the final pricing decisions yet, but please strongly consider giving developers that already have a DevCraft Ultimate subscription access to Icenium once it's released.  The power of DevCraft Ultimate is that it includes pretty much everything from Telerik for one price that's easy for business to swallow instead of trying to get various things approved one by one.  Thanks!
