Get hands-on experience building speedy mobile web apps with Sencha Touch 2.3, the user interface JavaScript framework built specifically for the mobile Web. With this book, you’ll learn how to build a complete touch application, called Find a Cab, that has the look and feel of a native app on Android, iOS, Windows, and BlackBerry devices.

The Sencha Touch learning curve can be steep, but if you’re familiar with JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3, and JSON, this guide will get you up to speed through real-world examples.

  • Learn the fundamentals, including the class and layout systems

  • Make remote connections by implementing server proxies
  • Save data offline by implementing client proxies
