Sencha Touch is a user interface (UI) JavaScript library, or framework, specifically built for the mobile web. It is fully based on web standards such as HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. Sencha Touch aims to enable developers to quickly and easily create HTML5-based mobile apps that work on Android, iOS, and BlackBerry devices, and produce a native app-like experience inside a browser.

Sencha Touch Cookbook,Second Edition shows users how to set up a project for development, and then walks users through building, packaging, and running it in a browser, emulator, or a real device. Easy-to-follow recipes take the reader through the different UI components offered by the framework and show readers how to use them, when to use them, and how to extend them for their own application needs. Clear, step-by-step instructions enable readers to model client-side data, load data from different data sources, and use them on the data-centric UI components. The book gives readers practical help with day-to-day problems such as how to create a custom view, take an application offline, and support automatic sync. Readers also learn how to utilize geolocation to learn more about the user, and how to create native packages using Sencha Cmd, without using PhoneGap/Cordova.
