Wanting mobile apps to run on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone doesn't mean having to write them in three different languages. Apache Cordova provides a common set of APIs to access native device functionality such as the file system, camera, and contacts from apps written in HTML, CSS and Javascript, along with a command line tool to produce the binaries required for multiple mobile platforms.

Apache Cordova in Action simplifies the entire process of creating and launching hybrid mobile apps using Cordova or Phonegap. By following carefully selected examples, step by step tutorials, and crystal-clear explanations, readers will learn to build apps from the Cordova CLI and make use of device features like the camera and accelerometer. For those just learning to design mobile apps, the book discusses ways to build mobile friendly, professional-quality UI and UX. Finally, the book covers testing techniques and explains the PhoneGap Build service, along with how to submit applications to Google Play and the Apple App Store.

Readers need to be familiar with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. No prior experience with mobile app development is required.


Cordova boasts a vibrant open source plugin ecosystem providing hooks into multiple device features and adding support for multiple different types of applications. Better still, when using Cordova with UI frameworks like jQuery Mobile, Ionic, or Sencha Touch, users can deploy their HTML based apps as native applications on any mobile device.
