■ Add animation with jQTouch 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

" The mobile web is increasingly important: mobile devices are eclipsing traditional desktop access to the internet. Jonathan's books provide the quickest path for getting a mobile web app off the ground and into an app store. They've been the great gateway drug for the PhoneGap project but. more importantly are demonstrating the power, utility, and simplicity of modern mobile web development."
