    Default Do your Touch apps run in Chrome on iOS?

    I tried the app I'm currently working on (production build) and my app loading indicator shows but never goes away. Anyone else try their apps in Chrome on iOS? I don't see a view console option so can't tell what's going on.

    Mine load but Chrome for iOS is a third slower than Safari so it's not something I would recommend using. Don't think there is much Google can do as it's Apple who is restricting them.

    Mitchell - do you apps use SDK tools build production? Mine shows the app loader but the app doesn't run. Of course I have no way to tell what's going on.

    Since Apple doesn't allow their fast JavaScript engine for other apps I figured Touch would be slower.

    You may want to use weinre or another remote debugger. I created a simple test app and built it with production and took a screen shot with my iPhone 4S with Chrome.

    FYI:

    Chrome on iOS is just a Safari Mobile UIWebView

    Default The same problem

    I have the same problem. My Sencha app works fine in all web-kit browsers on Android, works great in iOS Safari, but shows nothing in new Chrome on iOS. Only blank page. Am I alone with this problem?

    And in case people aren't aware, that's different than what mobile Safari uses. Mobile Safari uses a different Javascript engine. In theory, the only difference you should notice is speed. But there's that old saying about theory and practice...
