Android and iOS web framework


This neat little development has just been bought to my attention and i thought it was just the thing to brighten up a Friday afternoon.  “Sencha Touch is the world’s first app framework built specifically to leverage HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript for the highest level of power, flexibility, and optimization.”

Sencha Touch

Android + iOS, or is should that be the other way round?

The app seems to add the usual functionality but looks to standardise things such as icon libraries and proports to have found a way to determine screen size/resolution and dynamically adjust the app accordingly.  All sounds quite promising.

There are some example apps that use Sencha on the site but initial reports suggest that these are a bit flaky and unreliable.  However, they are a positive step in the right direction in making cross-platform apps that look and feel native.  Sencha is distributed under the GNU GPL license v3 which is good to hear.  Lets keep an eye on Sencha and see what happens.
