    Default Unanswered: Porting ExtJs4 app to Touch ?

    I'm trying to get an ExtJS4 app working on ipad/android (primarlily Ipad), I'm guessing this means porting to Sencha touch..

    Is this practical ?
    Are they similar enough ?
    Is there a document describing whats there and whats not ?
    Or am I better trying to get ExtJS4 working

    (for example - immediately ran into "Ext.state.CookieProvider" doesnt exist)


    any help or pointers gratefully received!

    From my experience, an ExtJS4 app works ok on tablets(from dev point of view), but the UX is not good - the end user won't like the app.
    Additionally ST is using heavily GPU hardware acceleration.

    To port the app IMO is not practically because there are many differences between frameworks. Probably there may be sth in common at the data layer and in logic, which you may reuse without problems
