Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: August 2015
Run time: 4 hours 39 minutes

Build web apps that take can advantage of features such as the camera, accelerometer, address book, and GPS in iOS, Android, and other devices. With this video course, mobile and web developer Max Firtman shows you how to extend your HTML, CSS, and Javascript code to work with native devices, using Apache Cordova and Adobe’s free PhoneGap framework.

Max presents a series of small labs and tutorials that demonstrate how to set up Cordova so you can embed your existing web app inside. You’ll come away with hybrid apps that are not purely web-based, but still use web views rather than the device’s native UI framework. These device-agnostic mobile apps can be adapted to work with any native device.

Comments about oreilly Applying Apache Cordova and PhoneGap:

The video could have gone into more detail about the plugins but everything worked. This is quite an accomplishment considering all the changes in installation procedures lately. Up until now, I have been a little frustrated getting the command line interface to work because most of what is out there is out of date. As of November 2015, this video is up to date. Thank you very much. rating: best command line interface and plugin startup video on the web.
