Sencha Touch: Product Overview

Build Mobile Web Apps with HTML5
Sencha Touch, a high-performance HTML5 mobile application framework, is the cornerstone of the Sencha HTML5 platform. Built for enabling world-class user experiences, Sencha Touch is the only framework that enables developers to build powerful apps that work on iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, and more.

What’s New?

Sencha Touch 2.4 is the latest version of our industry-leading mobile app framework. In Sencha Touch 2.4 we updated a number of BlackBerry components to match their native counterparts. Sencha Touch 2.4 also extends its BlackBerry 10 theme support to Q10 and Q5 devices. Sencha Touch 2.4 provides a great opportunity for developers to build mobile applications that have the native-like look-and-feel of BlackBerry devices.

Built for Speed

Users don’t care if the app is native or web as long as it’s fast and responsive. Sencha Touch blurs the lines between native and web apps, delivering a high-performing experience that users expect when using mobile applications. Using HTML5 and CSS3, Sencha Touch takes advantage of hardware acceleration to deliver an incredible app experience no matter what browser or mobile device a user is using. Built specifically to use techniques that make the most sense on each platform, Sencha Touch lets web applications rival native.

Built for Great Experiences

We made developing Sencha Touch apps easier than ever. Let your imagination run wild. Let your imagination run wild. Dream up the perfect app you want to build, how you want it to look, or how you want it to work with social networks. Sencha Touch has a solution for you. It’s built to let you develop great user experiences. With a full set of rich UI controls, over 300 built-in icons, full support for theming, MVC support, data bindings and a data package, eight complete examples and more, Sencha Touch developers get up and running quickly and easily. Sencha Touch also provides a rich set of documentation, screencasts and other learning resources to let new and experienced developers get productive fast.

Built for Success

Sencha Touch shrinks the distance between web app and native. Sencha Cmd includes our native packager, which lets you package and build your application as an Android .apk or an iOS .ipa. The best part? The Sencha Mobile packager works on both Mac and Windows, meaning PC developers can now create iOS applications without needing a Mac. It’s a major step forward for developers since you aren’t limited what app stores you can build for based on your development environment. We’ve also enabled a set of native device APIs that work on both iOS and Android. They include Camera, Orientation, Network Connectivity, native confirmation dialogs, and more.

Sencha: The Authority in HTML5 Performance

Our high-performance mobile HTML5 framework is the cornerstone of the Sencha HTML5 Platform, an end to end platform for designing, developing and deploying HTML5 applications. To make sure of this, we’ve spent countless hours testing performance on a variety of Apple, Android, and BlackBerry and Windows Phone devices.

Our HTML5 Developer Scorecard consists of a series of tests aimed to help mobile web developers understand new devices and new form factors as they come to market. We test in a number of areas, namely JavaScript performance, HTML5/CSS3 features, rendering performance and rendering accuracy.
