It's a fact: if you know HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, you already have the tools you need to develop your own iPhone apps. With this book, you'll learn how to use these open source web technologies to design and build apps for both the iPhone and iPod Touch, on the platform of your choice without using Objective-C, Xcode, or Interface Builder.

What are the advantages? Device-agnostic apps are the wave of the future, especially for mobile devices, and this book shows you how to create one product that can be used on several platforms. You'll get guidelines for quickly 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.

* Build iPhone apps using tools you already know how to use

* Compare the pros and cons of web apps and native iPhone apps

* Learn how to make an existing website look and behave like an iPhone app

* Add native-looking animations to your web app using jQTouch

* Take advantage of client-side data storage with apps that run even when the iPhone is offline

* Hook into advanced iPhone features (accelerometer, geolocation, vibration, and sound) with JavaScript

Simply Amazing!!

I've been authoring for years... html, js, css, php ... and didn't want to learn yet another dev language but wanted to still develop my own iPhone apps. This was the solution. Straight forward, clear instruction by an author who clearly has a comprehensive handle on his field, doesn't make assumptions about his audience and delivers what is promised. Absolutely my best buy on the iPhone yet! Don't like the limited apps currently available? Write your own with this!

5/5 stars

Absolutely Fantastic

If your planning to design iPhone apps then this is the app for you! It also seems iTouch user friendly. I'm a newbie at Apple type stuff programming and this has helped alot! Well worth the price; Glad I contributed to your wealth.

0/5 stars


No good for PC based dev people...you may as well go with LocalBeacon. It's a good read 'dev' based but non-functional for PC based peeps...shame, I guess PC based dev peeps will never get a taste of life.
