Podcast: Discussion with Sencha CEO Michael Mullany About Mobile Web App Development

Sencha Touch is a free mobile JavaScript framework that lets web developers build sophisticated touch friendly sites for mobile devices with HTML5 compliant web browsers (Android, iPhone and more). In Podcast 52, I spoke with Sencha CEO Michael Mullany about developing mobile web apps using Sencha Touch. We also discussed his thoughts about Windows 8 tablets and the Internet Explorer 10 browser. Mr. Mullany offered interesting insight into issues in developing web-based apps for Android, jQuery mobile compared to Sencha Touch and new features that will be introduced with Sencha Touch 2 (e.g., native sensor support).
