PRLog - Oct. 20, 2011 - MUMBAI, India -- Packt published its first book on the open source mobile development framework PhoneGap titled PhoneGap Beginner's Guide. With this book, one can learn how to develop cross-platform code for Android, iOS, BlackBerry and more such platforms while mastering new HTML5 and CSS3 APIs. The book is written by Andrew Lunny, who is a part of the official PhoneGap team.

PhoneGap is a HTML5 app platform that allows developers to author native applications with web technologies and get access to APIs and app stores. It takes advantage of HTML and JavaScript which most developers are familiar with, and bridges them to web applications and mobile devices.

PhoneGap Beginner's Guide shows how through a single application the user can tap into multiple platforms at once using existing web development skills instead of learning a different new environment each time. The guide will help readers in building complex applications through learning the APIs and development process of the PhoneGap framework.  

The book features learning techniques that will enable users to manage code that target multiple mobile platforms, use new HTML5 and CSS3 APIs to create responsive interactions, use PhoneGap APIs to integrate with native functionality such as device sensors, contacts and cameras. It also tips users on  using web development skills with native code to create installable web-apps that sync with remote servers. With this guide, plugging in to the PhoneGap i.e. adding functionality to the framework with custom native codes becomes possible.

The book is written for developers who are interested in developing for the emerging mobile market, and are not inclined towards learning new SDKs for every mobile platform available. Readers should have a prior knowledge of JavaScript, HTML and CSS. For more information on the book, visit: http://www.packtpub.com/phonegap-beginners-guide/book
