Sencha has introduced the beta release of Sencha Touch, an HTML5-based mobile application development framework.
Sencha Touch offers mobile application developers access to HTML5 technologies, including geolocation, local storage, and CSS3.
“HTML5 technologies are here, they’re being adopted very quickly, and by the end of the year, they’ll be running on every mobile device that matters,” said Abe Elias, founder and CEO of Sencha.
“As server and client frameworks continue to fragment, the mobile device industry has consolidated on the HTML5-capable Webkit browser as its default platform. We’re tremendously excited to be the first to introduce a professional-grade development framework that leverages the incredible work of the Webkit teams.”
