What is Sencha Touch?

Sencha Touch, a high-performance HTML5 mobile application framework, is the cornerstone of the Sencha HTML5 platform. Built for enabling world-class user experiences, Sencha Touch is the only framework that enables developers to build powerful apps that work on iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, and more.

Built for Speed

Users don't care if the app is native or web as long as it's fast and responsive. Sencha Touch blurs the lines between native and web apps, delivering a high-performing experience that users expect when using mobile applications. Using HTML5 and CSS3, Sencha Touch takes advantage of hardware acceleration to deliver an incredible app experience no matter what browser or mobile device a user is using. Built specifically to use techniques that make the most sense on each platform, Sencha Touch lets web applications rival native.

Built for Success

Sencha Touch shrinks the distance between web app and native. Sencha Cmd includes our native packager, which lets you package and build your application as an Android .apk or an iOS .ipa. The best part? The Sencha Mobile packager works on both Mac and Windows, meaning PC developers can now create iOS applications without needing a Mac. It's a major step forward for developers since you aren't limited what app stores you can build for based on your development environment. We've also enabled a set of native device APIs that work on both iOS and Android. They include Camera, Orientation, Network Connectivity, native confirmation dialogs, and more.
