So how do they stack up?
In my opinion, Sencha Touch is absolutely more versatile. If you feel a need to have complete control, Sencha Touch is probably for you. If there is ever anything that you can't do with Sencha Touch, you can pretty easily write a plugin for it. That is why I would usually pick it over jQuery Mobile for writing a native application in Phonegap.
jQuery Mobile is definitely easier to apply to an existing mobile site. It provides great progressive enhancement though it's smooth transitions and smart navigation. However, I would feel very limited with it if I was trying to write a sophisticated application.
What are your thoughts? Have you used jQuery Mobile or Sencha Touch? Which do you prefer and why?
