We planned to built a real-time collaboration mindmapping application for tablets based on adobe interactive flash server, RTMP (Real Time Messaging Protocol) and Adobe Flex/Flash. But according to the actual Apple developer agreement this will not be possible anymore.
Is it possible to build real-time applications with appcelerator? Any suggestions which application server and protocol to use?
It is entirely possible, but has yet to be proven.
However, we're about to implement a multiplayer mode for our TM game Golingo.
Our plan is to implement the HTML5 WebSocket API:s on top of Titanium's sockets and use these together with either PusherApp or a self-hosted node.js server to accomplish real-time multiplayer capabilities.
How does that sound to you?
