  • Be empowered to build your own mobile apps quickly with ease
  • Discover tips and tricks to make app development fun and easy

In Detail

PhoneGap is an open source framework that allows you to quickly build cross-platform mobile apps using HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS. PhoneGap Build is a cloud service that allows you to quickly develop and compile mobile applications without SDKs, compilers, and hardware. PhoneGap allows you to use its existing plugins or create new ones, as per your requirements, to enhance your mobile applications.

Starting by installing PhoneGap, you'll develop an app that uses various device capabilities through different plugins and learn how to build an app in the cloud with PhoneGap's Build service.

You'll discover how to use PhoneGap to create an application view, along with how to use a camera, geolocation, and other device capabilities to create engaging apps. Next, you'll augment applications with PhoneGap's plugins using minimalistic code. You'll explore the app preparation process to deploy your app to the app store.

By the end of the book, you'll have also learned how to apply hybrid mobile UIs that will work across different platforms and different screen sizes for better user experience.
