The Ontario Energy Board launched a new program that lowers electricity bills for low-income households by providing monthly rebates to eligible customers directly on their invoices.

In my previous post, I showed how to build a mobile web app using jQuery Mobile. Its use of HTML5 data attributes and CSS classes made it pretty straightforward, especially if you are used to building regular websites. The architecture of your mobile website would have to be based on the server-side though, whether this be ASP.NET MVC, PHP, Ruby, etc. Then I came across Sencha Touch which changes this mentality to a more progressive approach… client-side applications!
