Sencha 2.1 providing the right meaning to Cross-App Development

Cross-App Development

Yesterday on 28th October, 2014 Sencha announced the latest release of its Sencha Space which is a secure application management platform. The version 1.2 of this software has been released which has been turned out to be a great moment of joy for our developer team as well as thousands of other Sencha developers present all over the world.

By using Sencha Space, our developers would be able to create applications that run seamlessly on not only tablets and smartphones but desktops and laptops as well. Previously our developers had to focus on two different sections, firstly for mobile devices like tablets and smartphones, and secondly for desktops and laptops. But with the availability of this platform we can focus all, our energy toward this unified and single development approach. This would help organizations to reduce data protection issues, unnecessary compliance reporting needs, sky rocket development cost and unnecessary friction between two development teams.

The top four features of this Sencha 2.1 release that would prove to be extremely beneficial for our organization are:

  • Desktop and Client application: Now enterprises can use a single integrated platform to deploy applications to all types of devices irrespective of the screen sizes and the processing speeds. Now our developers can easily deploy, debug and manage mobile applications for all devices using a single platform.
  • Remote Debugging functionality: With help of the remote debugging facility offered by Sencha Space 1.2, our developers would now be able to test apps faster and efficiently.
  • New APIs for help: The new developer APIs that are available is a great help for our developers to add those extra functionality to applications.
  • Custom run-time: With the chromium based runtime across all 4.x and higher devices, this platform tries to reduce the burden on the Android.

And with the 30 day trial offer, our developers have a chance to give a try on Sencha Space 2.1.
