Unanswered: Differnce between Ext.setup and Ext.application
i am new on sencha touch and also new on extjs. so i walked trough the "getting startet" tutorials. it may be that i do not have all essential basics but i can not see a real difference between ext.setup and ext.application. one tutorial start with setup the next one with application. but none of the tutorials explains why...
if there is a essential difference, can anyone explain it?
thanks a lot,

They're very similar, but you should be using Ext.Application - which does things like setting up global namespaces for your MVC-style application, auto-creates a viewport, etc. Just read the API docs on Ext.Application.Arthur Kay

It really depends if you want to use MVC or not... Ext.Application is for MVC whereas Ext.setup is more for simpler things... just a quick note.Mitchell Simoens @SenchaMitch

How can elements be removed from the application in Ext.Setup and Ext.Application?
It seems unclear from the documentation how an element in an application that is coded via Ext.Setup can be removed, versus the simpler "this.remove()" when using Ext.Application. Can anyone confirm?
