Landscape and portrait layouts are both supported for iPhone- and iPad-sized screens, as well as custom sized screens. Once you are done creating an app using the Touch UI Designer, you are able to save it to your computer so you can later move it to your web server, edit it, etc. Apps created with DHTMLX Touch (and the UI Designer) will work on the iPhone, iPad, Android and standard WebKit-based browsers such as Chrome, Safari and Firefox 3.6 and later.
Keep in mind that DHTMLX Touch, unlike other DHTMLX products, is completely free for both non-profit and commercial application development. You can use it in your own commercial apps without paying a cent.

You can see the full demo to try out the features of the 52 Framework yourself. Like the others, you can try out the examples live on your computer once you have downloaded and unzipped it, and you can hack and edit the examples to suit your needs.
In this article we've looked at DHTMLX Touch, The M Project and the 52 Framework, and have provided you with the resources you will need to get started with each framework. In our next article we will look at Sencha Touch and the SproutCore framework.
