Semplicemente eccezionale.

Scritto molto chiaramente, introduce tutti gli argomenti utili allo sviluppo prima di una webapp (o di un sito) mobile, partendo dallo sketching e arrivando a PhoneGap, passando per HTML, CSS, Javascript, framework, nuove API per dispositivi mobili.

Non approfondisce tutti gli argomenti (non potrebbe in 250 pagine), ma fornisce buonissime basi su cui fare prove.

Consigliato sia a chi parte da zero che a chi ha già buone conoscenze di "normali" siti web.

This was a nice, quick read, essentially a walk-through of a product build with lots of references to online resources. Which is fine. But it's certainly not an omnibus of techniques and technologies if that's what you're after.
