Recently, Envato announced a new website: Envato Extras. The purpose of this site is to showcase applications, tools and utilities that people have built using the Envato API. A while back, I created a simple mobile app using Sencha Touch that used the Envato API to grab popular items from the Audio Jungle website and display them in a mobile friendly list. You can check out the application on the Envato Extras website or you can head over to my portfolio and view the item there.

Recently, I was working on a side-project that involved allowing the user to press play and listen to a sample track from a list of tracks on their iPhone. While this functionality works great when the user is on WiFi, the delay between pressing ‘Play’ and hearing the song on a 3G connection makes the application feel sluggish and non-responsive. My first idea was to add an event listener to the ‘play’ event (or something similar) and show / hide some sort of loading message when the user selects ‘play’. Unfortunately, the Sencha Touch API doesn’t support any such event. However, there is a way around this.
