Learn to develop mobile app development for iOS utilizing HTML5 and JavaScript.

Whether a developer has a simple or complex idea for an iOS app, author Scott Preston provides the necessary tools to program them in “Learn HTML5 and JavaScript for iOS,” just released by Apress Media. Other books on the market today focus on out-of-date technologies or take a vanilla approach to development, but this is the first title to provide real-life examples for iPhone, iPad or iTouch app programmers.

Preston takes readers step-by-step through creating a mobile web app for iOS, starting with an overview of HTML5, JavaScript, and mobile web frameworks. He then goes more in depth including design considerations that factor in usability and HTML5 features like animation, graphics, and geolocation. Final preparations include teaching developers how to customize the app based on a device and operating system, testing techniques, and how to optimize app productivity.

This book caters to those that want to move into mobile app development for iOS devices or current mobile programmers and users who want to develop cross-platform web apps.
