Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
This book is aimed at using Dreamweaver to do the heavy lifting to create these assets so that the user doesn't need to know the technical coding. This is a well explained book with great examples.
Several times it seemed I was not segued real well between topics. In the downloaded files, there were multiple cases when required files weren't carried forward or the example files weren't checked thoroughly. So, they don't run as expected or at all. To be fair, some of the latter could be because of changes in JQuery since publication.
The above aside, it's a good book and worth the money spent.
When you on click-on new in Dreamweaver three choices of mobile phone design are given. These include I Query Mobile (CDN), I Query mobile (local) and JQUERY Mobile (Phone Gap). You basically follow the templates here and create a simple mobile phone interface.
I have just reviewed the easiest part of the book. Creating a Native app with Phone Gap is far more intensive. On top of that you will need to install Android SDK, which can be confusing for a beginner.
It seems Dreamweaver has finally woken up to the realization that much html and css are going to be finding their way onto mobile devices. To my knowledge Dreamweaver is the only web editor that has this capability
However, I would have liked a CD-ROM to go along with the book. It would be nice to play around with the books samples and try to create your own mobile app. I find messing around with code can get the creative juices flowing
This is an excellent book since no other publications that covers both Dreamweaver and phone app design to my knowledge. Until another such book arrives this is the laymans standard for mobile web content.
