The Best HTML5 Mobile Web App Framework
Sencha Touch allows you to develop mobile web apps that look and feel native on iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry touch devices.
Built with Web Standards
Altogether, the entire library is under 120kb (gzipped and minified), and it’s trivial to make that number even smaller by disabling unused components or styles.
Enhanced Touch Events
As the core method of interaction in a touch-based app, robust touch events are vital to the framework’s architecture. On top of the standard events supported by the browser like touchstart and touchend, we have added a long list of custom events that can be used like tap, double tap, swipe, tap and hold, pinch, and rotate.
Works Hand in Hand with PhoneGap
The World’s Best Devices
Sencha Touch is a cross-platform framework aimed at next generation, touch enabled, devices. It’s currently compatible with Apple iOS 3+, Android 2.1+, and BlackBerry 6+ devices. Together these devices represent over 95% of current US mobile traffic. Developers can also make use of special themes we’ve created just for those devices. With the ever-rising number of Android models and the widespread popularity of WebKit on mobile devices, we expect our supported device list to grow very rapidly.
Just like our other frameworks, Sencha Touch comes with an incredibly powerful data package. Developers can easily request data from a wide variety of sources whether by AJAX, JSONP, or YQL, bind that data to specific visual components or templates, and then take that data offline with localStorage writers.
Sencha Touch is the perfect solution for mobile enterprise application development. Created with strict coding standards and a familiar, classical inheritance model, Sencha Touch applications can easily be worked on by teams small or large. And since the output is completely web-based, you can deploy your applications on your own terms, without waiting for approval or acceptance in native marketplaces.
