Building iPhone Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

Just finished Building iPhone Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript: Making App Store Apps Without Objective-C or Cocoa by Jonathan Stark. It’s a nice introduction to building iPhone applications without having to learn the nuances of Obective-C.While not a very in-depth book, the examples were clear and easy to understand and should provide any experienced web developer with enough knowledge to not only build iPhone apps, but to re-purpose websites for iPhones.

The title references only iPhones, but the examples work on iPads, iPod Touches, and droid devices. O’Reilly also provides an online version of the book on their Open Feedback Publishing System. OFPS allows people to comment on a book, often adding information, correcting errors, or clarifying ideas. I found this very useful while working through the examples. Thanks to O’Reilly for providing this site. Hopefully other publishers will do something similar…particularly with technical and reference products.
