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.
