Sencha Touch's novel layout engine leverages

Sencha Touch 2.4 is the latest version of our industry-leading mobile app framework. In Sencha Touch 2.4 we updated a number of BlackBerry components to match their native counterparts. Sencha Touch 2.4 also extends its BlackBerry 10 theme support to Q10 and Q5 devices. Sencha Touch 2.4 provides a great opportunity for developers to build mobile applications that have the native-like look-and-feel of BlackBerry devices.
Please note that the new Touch Grid component is not a part of Sencha Touch and is only available as part of Sencha Complete or Sencha Touch Bundle.
Smoother Scrolling and Animations
Sencha Touch provides a user experience unparalleled in HTML5. Fluid animations and smooth scrolling make Sencha Touch apps come alive, rivaling native technology. Lists, carousels, and other components scroll smoothly and naturally, with a high frame rate across a wide range of devices. The framework automatically uses the best scrolling mechanism for each device, resulting in a great experience everywhere.
Web applications work everywhere. But there are still a few features uniquely available to native apps that are essential to app developers. Sencha Touch now supports Apache Cordova APIs for Accelerometer, Camera, Capture, Compass, Connection, Contacts, Device, Events, File, Geolocation, Globalization, InAppBrowser, Media, Notification, Splashscreen, and Storage. Sencha Touch also supports the Adobe PhoneGap Build from within Sencha Command which can package your application for multiple devices with a single command. Sencha SDK Tools give you the best of both worlds, providing a way to seamlessly "wrap" your web app in a native shell and utilize all the device features. Whether you’re on Mac or Windows, you're one command away from deploying to the Apple App Store or Android Market.
