I realize that people may not care if I enjoyed it or not, but it sure makes it easier to read. Also, it is written in what I consider to be a conversational style. There are plenty of code examples for you to play around with. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning to create Android Apps. Full Review  >

The book 'Android Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript' written by Jonathan Stark is a great way to develop web applications that look and feel like mobile applications and allow you the ability to deploy them to iPhone or Android. If you are tired of developing mobile applications in Java and iOS in order to get your applications on both Android and iPhone, then you might want to consider reading this book and understanding more about how you can write your applications using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and being able to deploy it to either platform. Jonathan has a great deal of knowledge and experience developing web applications and mobile applications and he provides a step by step explanation of how to develop a web app using jQTouch in order for it to look and feel like a mobile app. In addition, he provided detailed explanation on how to take the web app that you have developed and get it deployed as a native Android application using PhoneGap. There is an entire chapter dedicated to working with the native code with PhoneGap in order to interact with the phone's beep, vibrate, alert, geolocation, and accelerometer. This book provides a great introduction to developing web applications that look like mobile apps and being able to use the same code to deploy a native mobile app. If you are interested in developing your applications this way, then this book is a must read for you.
