Hello,

I am new to Secha Touch and want to evaluate if it would be possible to build an app with below features. As this would require native access to file system, camera I want to hear from the group how is the experience in doing such stuff and if there are any examples to look at.

1. App to create profile with picture upload ( from old pics or from camera)
2. Send and receive data from server like feeds from other users in same group based on location
3. Group chat

What kind of back end do people use for such application? Would a j2ee back end on Amazon cloud be a good choice which serves JSON.

This should run on android and iphone. How would the packaging look like? Will I be able to develop on windows or need a mac as well for testing? We need to upload to app stores as well.

Sorry if these are very basic question. I just want to evaluate if Sencha Touch is the right technology to build such application

Sencha Touch can do that yes, except iOS 5 or before the browser doesn't give you any way to get access to images on the device.
