Mobile the next Mashup Mashup Frontier?

In my most recent post over at SearchSOA (Mashups and mobile: A match that makes sense) I wrote a little bit about how mashup technology can be used to migrate existing web and desktop apps onto a mobile platform.

Part of the inspiration for that article came from my own mobile-mashup experiment. I’m in the middle of writing an iPhone app which exposes a neat mashup I wrote. So I’ve been busy tinkering away on my new Mac, the first computing device from Apple that I’ve purchased in more than 20 years.

By the way, if you want to get up-and-running on iOS or Android devices quickly, I strongly recommend you take a look at Appcelerator’s Titanium framework.

Another product I came across while deciding what technology to use to build out my idea was something new called Moofwd. What is it? Well, according to their web site, it’s a mashup development environment and a rich-client platform that  supports Blackberry, Android, iPhone, WindowsPhone 7 & Java devices.

They dont seem nearly as mature as Titanium (which is not specifically targeting mashups but nonetheless comes with some examples out-of-the-box) but I have reached out to them to learn more about their offering. After spending a couple of posts on the failure of mashup companies, it’s good to see some fresh blood trying to carve out a niche for themselves.

I’ll take a closer look at both products in the future and share some more of my experience building my first iPhone mashup as well as the infrastructure I had to put in place behind it.
