For the second project of my Advanced Web Design class, I need to build a mobile web application. Although I have done responsive design for two years now, I have never built a web application; therefore, I picked up Kris Hadlock’s jQuery Mobile: Develop and Design to see if this is the right framework for me. To my amazement, I have learned the power of jQuery Mobile through Hadlock’s excellent, easy-to-follow writing style. jQuery Mobile is very well thought-out and it does all the heavy lifting. You could build a decent mobile web application if you get all the right hooks and Hadlock’s book is a great reference for those.
