This website is about Jim’s experience programming mobile apps and desktop applications, primarily using WebKit and Sencha programming tools.
He includes a some background, code, and a little philosophy acquired from years of programming experience. There’s also a little poetry, just for fun.
- About WebKit is about why we target WebKit to write a portable app for mobile and desktop devices.
- iOS to Android (Architectures) lists some of the differences between the iOS and Android environments.

October, 2012 : the mobile world just changed. Windows phones claim to be HTML5 compatible, allowing Sencha to announce that their Touch 2 framework will work with them too. This applies to other frameworks, such as Cordova (PhoneGap) and JQuery Mobile. MicroSoft has a shameful track record of following standards. I will report soon on how well they are doing this time.
