Even if Sencha only runs really well on iOS, it's still possible to use it on the PlayBook if you're willing to spend time building workarounds. Once you have a stable environment, you'll be able to go from idea to AppWorld app in record time using the built-in classes which allow you to easily retrieve and display data.
Building an interface is a no brainer as you can pick the building blocks you need from a large collection of UI elements.
Things that don't work well on the current release of OS 2.0:
- some masked icons
- complex forms
- some hardware accelerated transitions

Tried it - Hated it
JQ + native is far more effective
We're multi-platform but experience shows us that Sencha is bad for the devices we wanna target
On BB5 it's a joke
We planned to use Sencha (my recommendation) until we found out how poorly it performs on other devices
We wrote our own as a result
Adam, you should realise that developers don't wanna target one brand - we wanna roll out the same product accross multiple platforms

I'm developing apps with Sencha Touch for the PlayBook. It works great on it.
Coming from Java Development, I can build apps easily with no HTML, CSS skills.
My last app 'Remember' has been build in 2 days !
