Getting Started

Congratulations! You are building your first web application for your iOS device (iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch) using HTML5 and JavaScript.

You might think that you can pick up one of your HTML or JavaScript books from years past and then just scale it down to the size of your target device and you'll be good to go. You'd be wrong. A lot has changed.

In this chapter we lay the groundwork for building a mobile web app. Here we cover things like getting familiar with your browser, setting up your mobile project, architecting the site, and creating a site map as well as selecting the tools you'll use to build it.

All you need is an idea, and I'll help you take care of the rest.
