January 2013 | Web Development

Packt is pleased to announce the release of its new book Instant PhoneGap Social App Development; the book that will help readers learn the process of creating a PhoneGap app, adding plugins, and using the Twitter JSON API and Twitter’s web intents. Written by Kerri Shotts, this book is a practical guide to consume social network feeds and share social network content using native plugins and PhoneGap.

PhoneGap is an open-source mobile development framework which enables software programmers to build applications for mobile devices using JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS3, instead of device specific languages. This is also an ideal solution for those interested in creating an application that can run on multiple devices with the same code base.

Instant PhoneGap Social App Development shows readers how to easily perform installation of PhoneGap plugins so that they can extend the capabilities of their application. The book gives information to the readers to help them create compelling mobile apps that integrate with social media based on PhoneGap. The readers will find out more on how to consume Twitter feeds and also share content to Twitter using Twitter Web Intents. In all, the book is filled with practical, step-by-step instructions and clear explanations for the most important and useful tasks on social app development.

This book helps readers to know how-to:

  • Create apps for multiple platforms using the same code.
  • Share using Twitter Web Intents
  • Consume feeds using Twitter’s JSON API
  • Installation of additional plugins into PhoneGap


Instant PhoneGap Social App Development is for readers who have basic knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and want to learn about mobile application development. The book is now available for purchase in print and popular e-book formats at the Packt book-page.
