    PhoneGap Build: Developing Cross Platform Mobile Applications in the Cloud

    This excerpt from chapter four focuses on using PhoneGap Build, including beginning steps, creating builds for different mobile platforms, loading private keys, and installing builds on the emulator.

    PhoneGap is a standards-based, open-source development framework that can be deployed to any mobile device without losing the features of the native app — allowing for access to device contacts, the local file system, camera, and media on multiple platforms without requiring users to write a single line of code.

    Ideal for intermediate to advanced users, PhoneGap Build: Developing Cross Platform Mobile Applications in the Cloud offers the comprehensive coverage you need to harness the power of this dynamic tool. It provides complete coverage of the cloud computing platform and the theories behind cloud computing, using a series of engaging examples.

    The book explains the differences between existing mobile platforms, the different types of browsers they support, and the programming languages and integrated development environment required to develop apps for each of them. It then describes how PhoneGap makes the task of developing cross-platform mobile apps easier. This book will teach you how to use:

    • HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript to develop apps for devices across various mobile operating systems
    • PhoneGap Build to develop mobile apps in the cloud
    • PhoneGap with Sencha Touch and jQuery Mobile
    • Back end databases to store and retrieve information
