View Full Version : Turning Sencha Touch-based app into a true native iPhone app?

(Is Sencha Touch really the end of native?)

Ack it ate my reply! Anyway... short answer... yes you can run it as a native application. Look at Phonegap - http://www.phonegap.com/
I've tried it with a Sencha Touch app and it works fine in my limited testing.

Apple is supposedly blocking 1-click cross-platform appmakers like phonegap - I notice that their list of app examples are all more than a few months old -- have there been other automated-native-ized apps accepted by iTunes recently?

Is this true?
Where did you get this information from?
I am planning to use Phonegap with Sencha.

There's some amount of news on it - here's the quickest google search (http://www.engadget.com/2010/04/08/apples-iphone-lockdown-apps-must-be-written-in-one-of-three-la/).
Except, it looks like Phonegap's "Apple approved for App Store submissions": http://www.phonegap.com/download - I haven't had time to look into Phonegap yet, so I'm guessing it's Objective-C?

No, that does not block Phonegap.
If you know Phonegap, its just HTML. And it uses a Xcode project which uses UIWebView to render your HTML.
The actual compilation of Phonegap still happens inside Xcode. So I dont see why Apple will block it.

It looks like there are a couple of other cross-platform / rapid app dev software -- how does Phonegap compare with appMobi and others, for Sencha Touch conversion?

AppMobi is paid (commercial), Phonegap is Free (Opensource).
Phonegap is Apple approved (as far as I know).
Not sure about AppMobi.
