Hi all!

Well I just downloaded Sencha animator to test it out...Im trying to follow an example of two people that made an iphone app and which is on sale in the app store. Theyve made an ebook app for kids and they are sharing the process they followed.

They say that theyve used sencha animator and Phonegap to make the app. Ide like to also make a childrens ebook, as I write short picture stories for kids.

They used Sencha animator...but Im not sure I completely understand, as I dont understand how the animations in Sencha are made in to touch animations, I mean if I make my ebbok app in sencha with the animations and so on, how are these then made so that when someone touches the images the animation kicks in?
Or is that what phonegap is for?

basically what theyve said theyve done is created the animations and exported them as HTML via CSS3, then they created the app with phonegap.

Does that sound correct?

Is sencha touch the same as phonegap and has the same purpose? both are free?
