Mobile web-apps are great, and can have many advantages over native apps. But sometimes you need to accomplish something that can only be done by a native app. Perhaps you need to access the device hardware, like the camera or GPS hardware, in a way that web-apps are prohibited to do, or maybe you just want to sell your app on the App Store.
Fortunately, an open-source tool called PhoneGap makes it easy to “wrap” a standard HTML5 mobile web-app in a native wrapper, producing a native app suitable for submission to the App Store. In this tutorial, we’ll review the steps necessary to convert a web-app created with Handheld Designer into a native iPhone or iPad application.
In the second part of this tutorial, we created a “detail” page that displays the detail from an individual day’s forecast. In the tutorial’s final installment, we’ll create a “settings” page that allows the user to personalize the forecast location.
In part one of this tutorial, we created the main page of our weather app, and added code to query a weather web-service, process the returned forecast, and display it in a list view. In part two, we’ll create a “detail” page that displays the detail from an individual day’s forecast.
