I'm new to using Sencha Touch, and one thing is confusing me. I started by creating a basic app by using Sencha command 188.8.131.52. I did not do anything to add in PhoneGap. I got the thing built, and even got it onto an actual Android phone by using "sencha app build native", then using adb to push it onto the phone. The app works on the phone without PhoneGap.
However, I've seen people saying something about how PhoneGap is required if you want to put a Sencha Touch app in the various app stores. I cannot tell if this information is out of date (since I know for Sencha Touch 1, you had to use PhoneGap to package Sencha Touch natively), or if there is some limitation with Sencha Touch 2's native build that prevents you from publishing in the app store, but you can download to the phone manually, at least for Android?
