About

PhoneGap is a mobile development framework that allows developers to build cross-platform mobile applications. Building PhoneGap apps is traditionally done using HTML, CSS, jQuery Mobile, Eclipse Editor, and/or Xcode. The process can be cumbersome, from setting up your editor to optimizing your usage of jQuery, and so on. However, AngularJS, a new but highly popular JavaScript framework, eases these tasks with APIs to get access to mobile APIs such as notifications, geo-location, accelerometers, and more. Starting with the absolute basics of building an AngularJS application, this book will teach you how to quickly set up PhoneGap apps using the command-line interface.

You will learn how to create simple to advanced to-do lists and add authentication capabilities using PhoneGap's plugins. You will enhance your skills by writing a PhoneGap app using your newly learned AngularJS skills. Furthermore, you will learn about adding animation and interactive designs to your mobile web apps using PhoneGap plugins. By the end of the book, you will know everything you need to launch your app on both Android and iOS devices.
