Apache Cordova in Action Paperback / softback


DESCRIPTION Wanting mobile apps to run on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone doesn't mean having to write them in three different languages.

Apache Cordova provides a common set of APIs to access native device functionality such as the file system, camera, and contacts from apps written in HTML, CSS and Javascript, along with a command line tool to produce the binaries required for multiple mobile platforms. Apache Cordova in Action simplifies the entire process of creating and launching hybrid mobile apps using Cordova or Phonegap.

By following carefully selected examples, step by step tutorials, and crystal-clear explanations, readers will learn to build apps from the Cordova CLI and make use of device features like the camera and accelerometer.

For those just learning to design mobile apps, the book discusses ways to build mobile friendly, professional-quality UI and UX.

Finally, the book covers testing techniques and explains the PhoneGap Build service, along with how to submit applications to Google Play and the Apple App Store.
