Technology enthusiasts generally greet new Apple releases with a jubilant fanfare, but new device and iOS releases regularly impose significant costs for application developers. Fortunately, Sencha Space insulated its subscribers and end users from these interruptions. End users who upgraded to iOS 8 were able to simply upgrade their Space client application and all the apps deployed to them through Space continued to work as intended.
In this post, we explore the new Genuitec GapDebug tool and explain how it makes it much easier to debug hybrid applications built with Sencha frameworks and deployed with PhoneGap.

Last October we reviewed the web implementation in iOS7.0. We were disappointed in the release, and said that "the sheer number of bugs and broken features, clearly mark this release as a beta". Now that iOS 7.1 has just shipped, we decided to revisit our assessment and see how much progress Apple has made polishing the product.
In Part 1 of this series, we explored how the increasing cost of data breaches coupled with the risk of increased mobility poses formidable challenges for IT-based organizations. In this article, we will examine how adding a solution that provides application-level strong cryptography for data both in-motion and at-rest can help to strengthen the security posture of today’s MDM/MAM solutions.
We’ve been testing the final release of iOS 7 over the last few days against our usual battery of HTML5 tests. Normally we’re effusive about new releases of iOS to the point of fanboy-dom, but this time, and for the first time ever, we’re disappointed.
