With a Little Help from Our Friend

I'll be honest: making a web page animate like a typical native app is hard. Fortunately, an enterprising young lad named David Kaneda has created a JavaScript library called jQTouch that makes mobile web development a whole heckuva lot easier. jQTouch is an open source jQuery plug-in that handles virtually everything we learned in the previous chapter, as well as a boatload of much more complex stuff that would be truly painful to write from scratch.

You can download the latest version of jQTouch at http://jqtouch .com/. In the interest of full disclosure, you should know David recently asked me to be the official maintainer for jQTouch—an honor I happily accepted.
