    Default API's

    Hi guys, I am new to Sencha and have a question about API's.

    Is it possible to call iOS iPhone API's like vibrate or alarm when using Sencha? Or is Sencha Touch only for web apps? I know PhoneGap can call the types of API's I am asking for. But the thing is that I need to create a web app with these kind of features. Is it possible with Sencha Touch?

    Cheers

    Unfortunately the browser doesn't have too many device APIs exposed for us to use so the only way to do what you want is through something like PhoneGap

    with the correct use of HTML5 though mobile webkit can offer some enriched functionality (input with a type number shows a numeric keypad, using the date tag lets you open up the calender, etc etc).

    To see what is supported by the mobile browsers I'd recommend http://www.caniuse.com
