Sencha just announced the beta release of, a new cloud platform for the Sencha mobile developer.

From the official blog post: is an entirely new way for the client developer to think about the cloud. To store data, you simply tell your model to store data. And it does the rest. If you need to send messages to other users, you enable messaging with just one line of code. If you need to listen for messages, just set up a callback. And does the rest. If you need to log users in from Facebook, you just request the login with an API, and automates the whole process. And if you need a place to deploy your application, provides that, too.

The four services just beta launched are:

  • Data
  • Messages
  • Login
  • Deployment
