We'll also talk about PhoneGap, which is a project that will allow you to turn your HTML masterpiece into real app that you can sell on real app stores.
This course is based on the SitePoint book: Build Mobile Websites and Apps for Smart Devices. The book is a useful companion to this course, but not required. (It's still nice to have, coz books are cool too.)
So if you're a web developer or designer, and you want to make the leap to mobile, then what are you waiting for?
What you'll learn
- How to build a simple mobile app, step-by-step

Who should do this
If you've been wanting to make the leap to making mobile websites, or if you've been wanting to make mobile apps, without having to learn a bunch of hard compiled languages, then this is the course for you.
Bonus points if you feel comfortable on the command line.
To make iPhone apps you will need a Mac. If you're just making apps for Android, any operating system that can run Java will be fine.
