    Hi,

    I would like to join in the fun and develop application for webOS, but before I jump and dive with you guys, I would like to know if frameworks like jQTouch, Sencha Touch and jQuery Mobile work as well on webOS as they do on iOS or Android?

    I know webOS is webkit based, so I'm looking for answers from somebody that tried it

    Thanks!

    Yes. Basically all you need to turn a web app into a webos app is an appinfo.json file and a oneliner in your javascript.

    Dave Balmer actually gave a great presentation at DevDay NYC where he used his own framework in an app, you can find that at

    Thanks I'll download that to my iPhone for later viewing! Looks interesting!

    I don't want to sound picky but I'm really looking for comments from people that actually tried running jQTouch or Sencha Touch on webOS. I know it runs fine in Chrome and Safari, so is it OK to assume it's going to run as well on webOS' browser?

    *The animations for JQTouch don't work in webos 1.4.5(don't know about 2.0).
    *The 'kitchen sink demo' for Sencha Touch works fine, but the demo apps don't recognize the webos browser so they won't let me run them.
    *jQuery mobile works great, just keep in mind that it's only an alpha release though.

    A basic rule-of-thumb is that if it works in the browser, it will work as an on-device app. I went to the jQTouch website and tried their previews and the big thing was that none of the animation previews worked. I also tried some Sencha Touch demos in the Pre's browser and the kitchen sink demo worked great. Since on-device apps and in-browser apps use the same webkit engine, I would say you will get similar results running these on-device.
