Sencha Touch

Cross-platform Javascript and HTML5 mobile application framework.

What is it?

Sencha Touch is a cross platform mobile application development framework.

What is it like?

Good for making quick prototypes for applications but as with any cross-platform mobile framework created using a combination of HTML5 and Javascript, you can quickly run into problems.

For better usability, stability and performance, I would always build mobile applications natively.



I would not use a cross platform tool or framework to build hybrid apps. This should be deprecated in favour of something like React Native which builds native apps from React components.
