Get a re-development plan to help you move from Appcelerator to Flutter

In light of End-of-Support for Appcelerator Titanium being announced by Axway, Multizone would like to offer help for those of you with Appcelerator based apps in the form of a fixed price report and re-development plan. This will provide a costed roadmap for the migration of an existing Appcelerator based application to Flutter.

I believe in a single codebase for mobile applications. Discipline here enables simultaneous publication of software for Apple and Google Android devices, and results in less expenses in development, fewer defects, and the potential for a more coherent, and therefore better, overall platform.

  • Multizone has the know-how. We have over a decade of experience in publishing mobile applications for ourselves and for clients in the App Store and Google Play.
  • Multizone has been working with the Flutter toolkit since it was launched. We have seen it mature, and indeed it reached 2.0.1 status just last week.
  • We have completed the re-development of a major app platform for a clients with more than 20 discrete mobile apps. This involved migrating from Axway Appcelerator and its cloud services to Flutter and Firebase. These apps serve hundreds of organisations with tens of thousands of end-users.
  • Multizone knows that development frameworks require backing from major vendors with 'skin in the game'. Consequently we now recommend that Appcelerator applications are re-developed with the Flutter UI toolkit, with backend services in Firebase both from Google who have a vested interest in the success of Flutter for many of their own apps for Apple and Google Android devices
  • We have confidence in our proven ability to publish Flutter based apps in the App Store and Google Play.

We can be contracted to: deliver your app; build a team and deliver your app; product manage your team; or provide a costed plan to be used internally.

If Multizone is contracted to deliver the entire project, the cost of the report will be credited against your first invoice.

macOS deployment

What we have are a very particular set of macOS and Unix skills, skills we have acquired over a very long career. Skills that mean we can customise macOS as required for continuous integration and virtual servers without breaking the simplicity of the system. One small business client ran macOS Server for years inside their HQ in order to ensure the security of the data they work with. It was so reliable that they didn not need their own IT specialist. It was backed up automatically using Time Machine. Because it is based on macOS it was kept up to date with security issues and best practice.
