This book is available now in print, eBook, Kindle and select library formats.

About the Author: Shane Gliser graduated from Washburn University in 2001, specializing in Java development. Shane's primary passions center on user experience and the mobile web. He began working with jQuery Mobile while it was still in Alpha 2 and deployed the American Century Investments mobile site while the framework was still in Beta 2. Since then, he has rebranded and re-launched his own personal business, Roughly Brilliant Digital Studios (http://roughlybrilliant.com), as a place where he blogs tips about using jQuery Mobile.

jQuery Mobile is a unified, HTML5-based user interface system for all popular mobile device platforms, built on the rock-solid foundations of jQuery and jQuery UI. jQuery mobile framework takes the "write less, do more" mantra to the next level: Instead of writing unique apps for each mobile device or OS, the jQuery mobile framework allows you to design a single highly-branded web site or application that will work on all popular smartphone, tablet, and desktop platforms.

Creating Mobile Apps with jQuery Mobile starts out by teaching readers about effective mobile prototyping and then moves directly to the core of what every mobile site will need. After looking at creating some basic business templates and a universal JavaScript, the book delves into the more interesting side of mobile development, with an eye to progressive enhancement. There are ample coded examples accompanied with rich screenshots for easy comprehension. To provide an in-depth understanding, the book also consists of 10 different projects that will help the reader master jQuery Mobile in its entirety. This book will help the reader take full advantage of HTML5 audio and video, geolocation, Twitter, Flickr, blogs, Reddit, Google maps, content management system, and much more. It is suitable for anyone with a basic knowledge of web development.
