This nearly two hour video begins with a “hello world” app, and explores the accelerometer, detecting WIFI and other device specifics like name or OS version, how to initiate alert or confirmation popup menus, how to create a stop watch function, and of course tons more about programming in general.
PhoneGap is an amazing framework that will allow you to code in Dreamweaver CS5.5 (or other text editors) and deploy to multiple devices. Throughout the course, our instructor Lawrence Turton, will be testing on a PC using his Android device. And like Lawrence, if you have Dreamweaver CS5.5 or 6 then you are pretty much setup already. But we’ve also included a separate setup video for Mac users to test on their iOs devices. The setup is slightly different, but after that the code to deploy is the same. Which is the beauty of using PhoneGap. Throughout the entire multi-session series, we’ll be using the same code regardless of the device type, to interact with things like the Accelerometer, Battery status, Location, Camera, Contact Book, and so on.
