Here we give you an overview of the new Cordova & PhoneGap Support in Sencha Command 4. We look specifically at building a Sencha Touch 2.3 application with Cordova support then again with PhoneGap support. We also look at Sencha Commands PhoneGap Build integration to allow for Cloud building which will remove the need for local native development.
We really hope you find these features as exciting as we do, and we cannot wait to see what applications you come up with! Please hit up the forums with any issues and also to shoot us a link to any cool apps or projects being worked on with these tools!

Unlike previous versions of Sencha Touch, version 2.2 has started using the pictos icon-fonts to replace the need to render icons using images. Since icons-fonts are vector in nature, they can be scaled infinitely and styled dynamically using CSS. This video demonstrates a set of icon fonts included in the default Sencha Touch 2.2 theme, and the mechanism to include additional icons for your custom themes provided by pictos or even other icon font sets such as IcoMoon.
