  • Sencha Touch, Architect and Animator

    by Michael Mullany,

    Your message is awaiting moderation. Thank you for participating in the discussion.

    Sencha Touch 1's default theme was mid-way between a WebOS and an iOS theme, but every professional application has developed its own brand-appropriate theme using the built in theming system.

    Sencha Architect may perform like a native Mac OS app, but Sencha Architect is not native, it is actually an Ext JS JavaScript application wrapped in our desktop packager (similar to Qt) which gives it native UI elements like native menu bars etc. But it runs equally well on Windows.

    Sencha Animator does not produce "CSS-Style animation in JavaScript", it outputs clean readable, human hackable CSS Animations styles. Please download and try the tool to see for yourself.

    Michael Mullany, CEO, Sencha
