Apache Cordova

It is suitable for making portable applications, with almost the same code for several platforms. You can access native features of the device or use an open source plug-in from the repository to create a local database and access the internal storage of the device. It is wonderful for the construction of a native application, through the use of standard web code. It is not recommended for enterprise applications.

Sencha

It's great to develop business applications. Previously, we tried different technologies but we find it the most suitable for us. We also deploy a generic backend so we don't need to install anything new to implement new applications. This helps us to develop very fast and with very low effort.

Cons

  • It is not completely automatic since if you write individual style information for each platform objective, you can not make Córdova automatically apply the transormation at compile time; you have to change the linked style manually.
  • The support is deficient in general.
  • Configuration and use can be complicated as it requires the use of the command line.

Alternatives Considered

PhoneGap is another viable option but lacks the amount of support Apache Cordova receives rendering it worthless.

The main reason we chose Sencha is it’s full stack solution. We have an integrated backend that solves a lot of the infrastructure issues and Sencha was the only tool in the market that has only one library full of components. It is not fashionable to use it, as developers always love new technologies, but Sencha is the best for business applications and has a lot of useful tools.

Return on Investment

  • It has a positive impact in general. Cordova is really a great solution for web developers who want to bring their incredible ideas to devices, but they just do not have a lot of time to put into iOS and Android learning curves.
  • Our biggest benefit was that the management of images for multiple devices.
  • Developing with Cordova has drastically reduced the cost of cross-platform deployment.

  • Excellent applications
  • Very good performance
  • Not very used, and developers don't like it at the beginning
