Sencha & Sencha Touch
jQTouch is a jQuery plugin for mobile web development on the iPhone, Android, iPod Touch, and other forward-thinking devices.
Once at Sencha they began working on the next iteration basically of what jQTouch was looking to do and thus Sencha Touch was born:
Sencha Touch allows you to develop mobile web apps that look and feel native on iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry touch devices. For more on Sencha Touch check it out here.
The coolest thing about Sencha is that they’ve created Sencha Labs which is a home for all the various open source projects the team has created. So each of those projects, like jQTouch is still currently maintained and active. Which is freaking awesome.
I tried to get David to spill the beans on some upcoming plans for Sencha Touch but he wouldn’t let us in on it. Boo! Maybe next time.
