After 25 Million Downloads, Joomla Aims To Expand Into Apps

What was born just before YouTube and Twitter, powers whole websites with open source code and has now been downloaded 25 million times? Joomla! The popular Content Management System with an exclamation point in its name passed a major milestone this month and now says its future will be based on helping developers build all kinds of other apps. "We in the Joomla leadership are looking for ways to help developers grow and keep up with the next generation of community needs," says Joomla's Ryan Ozimek.

Senh: I only wish Drupal would head in that direction too. This should be interesting. Looks like I'll have to familiarize myself with Joomla! and keep an eye on this. It makes complete sense though. There isn't a cms for apps development. You would have to learn different api's to create apps for Android, iOS, Facebook, or Twitter. If I could use Joomla! to create apps that would work with all of those platforms, it would be awesome.
