When used together, Dashcode and Xcode provide the power and ease of use needed to create unique, exciting, hybrid iPhone applications. Because both of these tools were extended with custom templates for hybrid iPhone applications, you do not have to “roll your own” Objective-C wrapper. In the first three sections, you learn how to use existing hybrid iPhone application templates for Dashcode and Xcode. Using these templates lets you quickly create hybrid iPhone applications. A short discussion of basic Objective-C and how an Objective-C iPhone application is structured in the two most heavily used hybrid application tools—QuickConnectiPhone and PhoneGap—is also included in Sections 4 through 8.
