App Savvy: Turning Ideas Into Ipad and Iphone Apps Customers Really Wantby Ken Yarmosh
Synopses & Reviews
--John Allsopp, author and founder of Web Directions
"Jonathan's book is the most comprehensive documentation available for developing web applications for mobile Safari. Not just great tech coverage, this book is an easy read of purely fascinating mobile tidbits in a fun colloquial style. Must have for all PhoneGap developers."
— Brian LeRoux, Nitobi Software
Device-agnostic mobile apps are the wave of the future, and this book shows you how to create one product for several platforms. You'll find guidelines for converting your product into a native iPhone app using the free PhoneGap framework. And you'll learn why releasing your product as a web app first helps you find, fix, and test bugs much faster than if you went straight to the App Store with a product built with Apple's tools.
