I partnered with my brother-in-law (a pilot), and we just released an app for pilots of the EMB 145 jet. It's built on top of my flash card engine to help them learn the plane's limitations. Apparently this is a big deal for pilots. We're going to be adding more planes in the near future.
Thanks, Jay. I don't have any sencha touch powered websites yet. I'm a bit hesitant to do that, though, as I don't want to cut out the IE users.
I just got my .NET Interview app approved for the app store yesterday (iPhone and iPad). It's the first one I've tried on there, but the EMB 145 Limitations will be next. I wanted to go through the process once.
For anyone who's curious, it took almost exactly one week for it to go from Waiting for Review to Ready for Sale.
I've had a few little issues with Sencha Touch, but nothing major; I've still been recommending it to folks.
Here are my issues, though:
- I could never successfully load my local xml file using sencha touch. I had to use jQuery for that.
- The checkbox labels were not clickable, so I got lazy and used a jQuery selector to find the checkbox label and attach a click event to it that toggled the checkbox.
- There's a white flash as I move between cards. I read somewhere on the forums here that the issue has been fixed in the latest versions of sencha touch, but as a non-premium subscriber i don't have access to it.
- This is a weird one, but my "Show Answer" button was just a button sitting outside of a toolbar, and it would sometimes not show up at all in the iOS version. I couldn't figure out what exactly was going on, but doing a transition to show the next question "fixed" it. So for the iOS version, there's a little quick transition as it goes to the previous/next question. (I didn't do the transitions on the Android because they didn't look very good. iOS can handle them, though.)
