The author should have insisted that apress finish the technical editing, copyediting and page layout before making this book available for purchase. While the author is off to a good start - the publisher has short changed readers by rushing publication. Given this, early purchasers are significantly disadvantaged with no way to get the inevitable updated publication.
Chapter one starts off with a justification for jQuery Mobile, and while I do think he over sells it a bit, it's a good overview (personally I think there are good arguments for a native iOS app and leave jQuery Mobile for Android and all other phones). Also, the author doesn't seem to understand that iOS apps can support multiple versions of the operating system by checking for the existence of API's at runtime and degrading gracefully for older OSes. But that's not the major point of the book, so I won't dink him a star for that.
The rest of the book was pretty much exactly what I was hoping for. It covers the basics of creating an app, and all the user interface elements you can use. It shows how they degrade gracefully in older browsers, and how it flexibly adapts to screen resolution and device orientation. He covers the page and document lifecycle very well, so there are no surprises when you develop your own sites. He describes how page navigation works (and the two options you have for loading pages), how forms work, and flexibility with built in media query usage.
A whole chapter is devoted to List Views, since that's often the core of a mobile app (although hopefully your app will be more than just a series of lists!). Lists are complex because they can have a myriad of attributes, headers, footers, accessory controls, searching capability, etc. A comprehensive chapter.Read more ›
