View Full Version : Native iPhone App, ported to Sencha in one night.

My brother and I have been working with a firm in Little Rock, Arkansas to provide free information about the state legislature. We created a free iPhone app, called LobbyUp Directory. It is well-received, but we noticed a lot of our web site traffic comes from Android users, so we decided to see what it would take to port our app to Sencha.

After one night of work, we were able to duplicate the look and functionality of our iPhone app (both apps communicate through a Grails backend).


Native App (iPhone): http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lobbyup-legislative-directory/id389295969?mt=8
Sencha Version: http://lobbyup.com/directory

Very nice work, I like the look and feel. Especially the Legislator list and details pages. Looks almost identical to your native app.

Very fantastic!!!!!

So which do you like coding better? For native app or Sencha Touch? Have you thought about porting to ST2?
