Hi;
there have been some interesting info lately regarding the themeing system.
what is the qriteria I need to consider when trying to decide if I simply want to add some CSS properties or use sencha's built-in compoment css classes as oposed to creating a custom theme.
thanks.

if you want to have your own theme, you should do it with scss like it s done by the sencha team.

read the blog post http://www.sencha.com/blog/2010/12/17/an-introduction-to-theming-sencha-touch/

I generally always recommend creating a custom stylesheet. Even if you don't want to make any sweeping changes to color scheme/gradients (what the SASS/Compass is best at), it still provides you a way to create your custom styles in one stylesheet and have it compressed for performance/optimization.
