Can Sencha Touch do this? - 3 things I need to know before I start
- iPhone has the main app screen which has apps and a background which you can slide form side to side to see a new group of apps. Is it possible to duplicate this set up?
- Also like the iPhone home screen, will the framework allow you to press and hold an icon till it shakes?
- The iPad has the iworks apps, specifically Keynote. It has a great design for editing the size, shape, color, angle, etc of objects, can sencha do this?

Sencha Touch is not a replacement for iOS.

None of these features are available out of the box so to speak - but Sencha provides the framework that would let you replicate some of them, albeit with a lot of work, in a web app.

I'm creating a table management application and have it all planned out. When I went to developers for iOS to create the app, it turned into a $15,000 project. It wasn't cost effective for me to do it that way yet. I will in the future also get that up and running but after I start getting some money in.
I would gladly join forces with another programmer to get this project done in a quicker time frame. Known anyone?

I wanted to show you an example of what kind of screen, using the iPad, it would look like.

As already said, Sencha is not a replacement of iOS but a great framework wich will allow you develope some amazing apps.
You have to consider that Sencha Touch is a new born project, so it's normal you still have not seen some big application using it, but i suggest you to take a look at the application I'm working on, that, maybe, will show you what you can really do with Sencha Touch.
Take a look at this post.
As you will see in the application I almost replicate the iOS home screen according to my needs, so maybe this partial reply to you doubts on this amazing framework.

It absolutely helped, I will send that to my programmer. Thanks for the reply, if you by chance feel like giving away some free code... I'd love to see how you did the carousel with the buttons.

I'm glad I helped in some way.
I will try to cut out some application code to show you how I develope the carousel with buttons but is really hard at the moment.
But I will check what I can do about it!
