Building Android Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript : Making Native Apps with Standards-based Web Tools Paperback

Description

If you know HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, you already have the tools you need to develop Android applications.

This hands-on book shows you how to use these open source web standards - instead of Java - to design and build apps that can be adapted for any Android device.

You'll learn how to create an Android-friendly web app on the platform of your choice, and then convert it to a native Android app with Adobe's free PhoneGap framework.

Discover why device-agnostic mobile apps are the wave of the future, and start building apps that offer greater flexibility and a broader reach. * Learn the basics for making a web page look great on the Android web browser * Convert a website into a web application, complete with progress indicators and more * Add animation with JavaScript to make your web app look and feel like a native Android app * Take advantage of client-side data storage with apps that run even when the Android device is offline * Use PhoneGap to hook into advanced Android features - including the accelerometer, geolocation, and alerts * Test and debug your app on the Web under load with real users, and then submit the finished product to the Android Market
