    Default Unanswered: Phonegap required to access native APIs while using Sencha at UIlayer for iPhone/iPad

    Without PhoneGap is it possible to access native APIs of iOS in Sencha.

    We suggested our client that we use Sencha as UI Layer, PhoneGap to fill the gap between Native features and SQLite DB to handle large amounts of data the app is to use and process. And we need to store and manage data around 2GB in the Document's Directory of app.

    Also, would it be possible to make a resume-able download mgr in sencha?

    However they want only SENCHA Touch no Phone gap.

    Is it possible and if so please mention a link to a demo. If not any links which we could forward them to make our case...

    Thanks in advance... We are short on time, please quick, short and crisp reply will really Help us.

    So, I can assume that it is not possible. Hence Sencha lacks Big time.

    There is only so much the browser allows us to use so Sencha Touch doesn't lack, there isn't much we can do. Like in iOS 5 the browser simply won't allow anyone access to the camera, only a native packager can have that access.
