Book Description

With the increasingly fragmented mobile application landscape, it's important to find strategies that allow for rapid development on many different platforms. Using PhoneGap, you will be able to use a single codebase that targets iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and more, just using web development skills.

PhoneGap  Beginner's Guide will show you how to use the PhoneGap mobile development framework to target multiple mobile platforms: iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and more with a single application. With PhoneGap, you can use existing web development skills, instead of learning a new environment for every platform on the market.

PhoneGap Beginner's Guide will escalate you from being a novice at mobile development to writing complex applications that target multiple platforms, through learning the APIs and development process of the PhoneGap framework.

You will learn how to manage a code base that targets multiple mobile platforms; how to use new HTML5 and CSS3 APIs to create rich, responsive user interfaces; and how to use the PhoneGap APIs to integrate with native functionality such as device sensors, contacts, and cameras.

After reading PhoneGap Beginner's Guide, you will have the skills and the confidence to target all of the major mobile platforms with rich and responsive applications.
