Build Your First Mobile App with PhoneGap Build

  • submit to reddit

As many of you know, I recently launched a new web site for articles and tutorials covering web and mobile development called Flippin' Awesome. One of the features I've been releasing over the last month was a detailed 7 part series I wrote covering how to build a mobile app using jQuery Mobile and PhoneGap Build. This was based on a workshop I gave at Web Unleashed last year and walks through in detail every step of the process. It only assumes you have some web development experience and does not require any prior experience building mobile apps or using PhoneGap.

If you are looking for a way to get started, please check it out. All seven parts are listed below.
