Speaking about Sencha Touch, I would like to share my thoughts on it regarding the development of PlayBook apps.
I built 3 apps with Sencha Touch 1.1. All is running fine. I'm not sure every Sencha Touch components are well supported but the ones I needed are ok.
Recently, I built a new app with Sencha Touch 2.1 because of the support of BB10 and the possibility to port my app.
The Sencha Team says they have improved the performance. I agree... except for the startup time. My ST 1.1 apps take 4 secondes to start. As for me, it is just acceptable for a tablet app.
But my ST 2.1 takes 6, 7, 8 secondes to start. I think it's too much !
I'm looking for a way to make it quicker to start but reducing the images size or dealing with direct and lazy instantiation is not the solution. I'm not sure what is taking time when the app starts. Maybe all the classes and css I'm not using should be removed. That's the way I'll try with the Sencha cmd command.
If someone faces such an issue with Sencha Touch on BlackBerry, it would be nice if we could share our experience.
