More About the Author

I have authored several books, focusing on two very different aspects of my life and professional focus. On the faith front, I am author of "The Expeditionary Man", "The Myth of Happiness", and several "For Dummies" books designed to make meaty truth easily approachable for postmodern readers. These books include "C.S. Lewis & Narnia For Dummies", "Christianity For Dummies", and "Christian Prayer For Dummies".

On the technology front, I have authored several web tech books as well, such as "Adobe AIR For Dummies", "XSLT For Dummies" and "Building Facebook Applications For Dummies".

I work as Senior Developer for Maark, a strategic and interactive B2B marketing firm in Boston. Previously, I was V.P. of Product Development at NetObjects, an Internet software company, as well as inventor/architect of NetObjects ScriptBuilder.

I graduated from Taylor University and pursued graduate studies at American University. Though a native Hoosier, I now live in Princeton, Massachusetts with my wife and three boys.

This is the best book on mobile web apps, especially iPhone apps. I have a background in CSS, javascript and PHP, but I thought I would have to learn objective-C to create apps for the iPhone. I found out about WebKit on the internet and I wanted to learn more. While some books touch on WebKit, this book explains it in detail.

I recommend some background in CSS, but you don't have to be a technical wizard to learn from this book. I was creating web-based apps for the iPhone in a matter of hours. I want to convert some of my existing web pages to look good on an iPhone. This book showed me how to make my web apps look like native iPhone apps. This information will be useful when I start working on iPad apps.

This book saved me hours on the learning curve, and since I can now tell my clients that I can create mobile apps, my business is increasing. Mobile apps are the future. This book will move you to the front of the line in this new area.

I used it to build a nice looking application for IPhones for my real estate business. Hard to tell it from a real iPhone app. Was very simple to use if you are familiar with building a webpage.
