Organization Of The Series
This tutorial has been organized into 4 parts. In the next section of Part I, named “jQuery Mobile and PhoneGap”, we briefly introduce jQuery Mobile and PhoneGap and discuss developing cross-platform native applications using those frameworks. In the following section, “Screen Flow”, we present the Tweets application and describe its screen flow. The section named “jQuery Mobile Page Structure” is an introduction to several high level concepts in the jQuery Mobile framework, in particular, container and content pages.
In Part II, we will start reviewing the Tweets application. In “Review Of index.html”, our main focus is on the static structure of the HTML and jQuery Mobile code that makes up the application screens. The section named “Twitter API” gives an overview of the Twitter API methods
In Part III, we will continue inspecting the “Core Business Logic Functions”, taking up from where we left off in Part II and finishing the code review of the Tweets application by looking at “Event Handlers” and “Page Display Functions”.
The final part of our tutorial, Part IV, starts with the section named “Files In the Download Archive”, where we describe the contents of the archive file accompanying this series.
