7. Going Native

Chapter 7. Going Native

Our web app can now do many of the things that a native app can do: launch from the home screen, run in full screen mode, store data locally on the iPhone, and operate in offline mode. We’ve formatted it nicely for the device and set up native-looking animations to provide feedback and context to the user.

However, there are still two things that our app cannot do: it can’t access the device features and hardware (e.g., geolocation, accelerometer, sound, and vibration), and it can’t be submitted to the iTunes App Store. In this chapter, you will learn how to use PhoneGap to bridge this, um...gap on your, ah...phone. Clever name, that!
