A decent intro

Even though it's a bit dated now, I found this to be an excellent basic introduction to building mobile-friendly apps and how to deliver them directly or through the official play store.

Ottimo libro che accompagna il lettore passo dopo passo nella creazione di applicazioni web fruibili tramite uno smartphone Android. La creazione guidata delle applicazioni, dove ogni singolo passo è spiegato nel dettaglio, è fatta in modo tale che l'applicazione evolva man mano che si va avanti nella lettura del libro. In questo modo il codice è sempre ridotto al minimo indispensabile e al lettore non è richiesto di avere una conoscenza pregressa delle tecnologie utilizzate. Questa caratteristi ...more

I bought this book to work on an app for a history museum - the kind where you move or QR-scan a display and "something" happens (e.g. video, sound bite, graphics). I was impressed to work through the layers of building the app with HTML/CSS and JavaScript. The one area that piqued my interest was PhoneGap - I had not heard much about this prior to picking this book up.

I'm a huge fan of O'Reilly books, but every once in a while one doesn't get a "five-star" rating from me. This one is enough to

Un po' scarno. Fila come un treno tra tutti gli argomenti: HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, jqTouch, WebSQL, offline, PhoneGap e Android Market. Troppi per solo 150 pagine, al punto che accenna a tutto ma approfondisce molto poco. Visto che di manuali di HTML, CSS e jQuery se ne trovano a bizzeffe, avrei preferito un maggiore approfondimento su jqTouch e PhoneGap, che invece sono solo accennati. Una buona panoramica con diversi riferimenti esterni.

A very basic and beginner book about making a mobile app in Android using CSS, Javascript and HTML with a few other things thrown in. A book that you can go through in an afternoon or two if you wanted to get through it. If you're looking for something more complex, I'd suggest looking up other books just to get a variety of views on this broad subject. Give it a read!

Could have been trimmed in half... Lots of basic information, duplicate code, and screenshots. OK, but not great.
