Phonegap + jQuery Mobile = Awesome


Already a web developer? Then learn how to build native iPhone and Android apps using PhoneGap, jQuery Mobile and your HTML skills.

I’ll walk through the whole process in order to demonstrate:

  • how to setup a PhoneGap application
  • how to use PhoneGap to access native capabilities such as the camera, GPS location, and accelerometer
  • how to incorporate jQuery Mobile to emulate the interactions of a native app
  • how to add other plugins to make use of native capabilities not in PhoneGap, such as sending an email from the native email application

I’lll be using our app Skill Sketch as an example of a completed PhoneGap/jQuery Mobile app that is currently in the iTunes App Store.
