Instead of just showing short snippets of code to explain a particular API, this guide is chock full of complete examples. You’ll find more than thirty complete Cordova applications that work on Android, iOS, Windows, and more. The sample applications demonstrate exactly what each API does and how it works, while the chapter content describes the limitations on the leading target platforms (and even offers possible workarounds).
Through realistic “cookbook” example code, mobile developer John Wargo helps you master the Cordova APIs and understand how to use them in your Cordova applications.
