Appcelerator Alloy is powered by the open source project named Alloy for Titanium. It is a development framework to facilitate the rapid development of high quality mobile applications. It follows a model-view-controller (MVC) architecture and using XML and CSS it provides a simple model for separating the application user interface, business logic and data models.
Appcelerator Alloy significantly decreases the amount of time and code required to build an application, making the code easier to read, manage and re-use. With Alloy themes you can leverage one app to others, skinned in different flavors. With Alloy widgets you can create components that can be reused across multiple apps. Using Appcelerator Alloy, all mobile developers, from the novice to the most advanced, can build rich, high quality and scalable apps.

Why Appcelerator Alloy?
Traditional mobile development tools do not enable the separation of the user interface, business logic and data model for a given application. Appcelerator Alloy provides a framework to allow developers to take a structured approach to their development to facilitate the creation of modular components that separate these out, to significantly improve the readability, maintainability and reusability of their code.
