This hands-on, in-depth book introduces developers to the initial release of the iPhone application platform and assists them in creating Web 2.0 applications that operate on the iPhone and integrate with its services. Author Richard Wagner shares his experience as he guides readers through the process of building new applications from scratch and migrating existing Web 2.0 applications to this new mobile platform.
Utilizing practical examples, the book shows how to build a wide range of solutions--from a basic XHTML/CSS client to an advanced Ajax-enabled database application. As it does so, it helps readers design a user interface that is optimized for the iPhone touch-screen display. Additionally, the book helps readers integrate their applications with iPhone services, including phone dialog, its motion sensor, and Google Maps.
With this book, readers will discover how to:
- Build an XHTML and CSS UI framework from the ground up

- Capture finger touch interactions
