View Full Version : Sencha Touch Platform Compatibility?

6 Jan 2011, 7:34 AM

I currently have a few jQTouch apps and I'm looking for a more universal framework. Sencha Touch is interesting for its tablet support, but I'm wondering if it can run properly on BlackBerry 5+ and webOS.

I found this grid for jQuery Mobile that is very useful. http://jquerymobile.com/gbs/

Does a similar grid exists for Sencha Touch?

The only reference I have found for compatibility is this quote: "Sencha Touch 1.0 is compatible with Apple iOS and Google Android, which together represent over 93% of current US mobile traffic."

I can tell you that it does not work very well on webOS, I have a Palm Pre and it's quite impossible to use Sencha touch apps on it.

Thanks VinylFox!

Anybody actually tried Sencha Touch with BlackBerry Widget or webOS?
I will probably have to go through the process of using my work computer (Windows) to get Eclipse+BB Widget and try myself, but if somebody can spare me the hassle, it would be much appreciated!

As for webOS, it's a webkit browser but does it support CSS3 the same way Safari and Android do?

Blackberry support will come with Sencha 1.1. Source: http://www.sencha.com/blog/2010/11/30/new-releases-sencha-touch-1-0-1-ext-js-3-3-1/

Bump... anyone?

Nobody tried Sencha Touch on a BB 5.x, BB 6.x or not even webOS?

Sencha Touch is designed for Webkit based browsers on phones. BB doesn't have Webkit yet, but it's in the plans.

If Touch does do some things on BB, it's a bonus not by design, I'd surmise.

Thanks mschwartz! I know BlackBerry 6.x support is coming with Touch v.1.1, so for now I guess I will hold off. I heard 1.1 is coming this January so I could even start and just wait a bit before launching.

BB 4 and 5 have awful browsers so I'll forget about them. The only missing player is webOS! How does Touch behave on webOS? It has a webkit browser if i'm not wrong?
