How did we build this beautiful app?

The Tyee news app was produced by Phillip Smith and Greg Heo using Sencha Touch, a HTML5 mobile JavaScript framework. The source code for this application is open source and can be found on Github


What about non-touch-screen phones?

Just open a browser and navigate to You will be re-directed to a mobile-optimized version of our site. Save that to your home screen and you will have something that looks and acts like an app. If you ever need to see our full site on your phone, there's a link at the bottom of that page.  [Tyee]
