Developing applications for Android and other mobile devices using web technologies is now well within reach. When the capabilities of HTML5 are combined with CSS3 and JavaScript, web application developers have an opportunity to develop compelling mobile applications using familiar tools. Not only is it possible to build mobile web apps that feel as good as native apps, but to also write an application once and have it run a variety of different devices.  

While the HTML5 specification is still evolving, there is a lot that can be used right now to build mobile web apps. Mobile web apps are now starting to provide many of the features that were once only available to native-language-based apps in Java, Objective-C, etc. Pro Android Web Apps teaches developers already familiar with web application development, how to code and structure a web app for use on the Android mobile platform.

  • Understand both the why and how of mobile web app development, focusing on the Android platform.
  • Learn how to structure mobile web apps through a number of practical, real-world application examples.
  • Discover what cloud platforms such as Google AppEngine have to offer Android web apps, for both hosting web apps and providing device to cloud data synchronization solutions.
  • Get a real picture of the status of HTML5 on Android and other mobile devices, including some things to watch out for when building your own applications.
  • Understand the capabilities of the web application stack, and how to complement those with native bridging frameworks such as PhoneGap to access native features of the device.
  • Gain an understanding of the different UI frameworks that are available for building mobile web apps.
  • Learn how to include mapping and leverage location-based services in mobile web apps to create engaging mobile experiences.
  • Enable social integration with your Android web app and gain access to millions of potential users. 

After reading this book, you will not only have a greater understanding of the world of web apps on Android, but also how to leverage additional tools and frameworks to increase the reach of your mobile web apps. Additionally, through the practical samples in the book you will have been given solid exposure of where both the opportunities and challenges lie when building mobile apps the web way.

About the Author:

Damon Oehlman is an experienced web and mobile applications developer and architect, whose first experience of programming was re-keying lines of code published in early computer magazines onto an Amstrad CPC-464 at age 8. Having learnt the hazards of "copy and paste coding" at an early age, Damon has gone on to work with both small and large companies developing software solutions for desktop, web and most recently mobile devices. He currently runs his own boutique software development and consulting firm, Sidelab (www.sidelab.com), which specializes in mobile and cloud computing. As a consultant on technology strategy and innovation, Damon is passionate about pervasive computing and the technological and social impacts of our digital future.
