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
