We’ve received a few requests about mobile app development in the past few weeks. We were looking for different options and wanted to use something which could be written once and used on different devices including iOS and Android. We found two solutions: one called Titanium Mobile and another one called PhoneGap. If you are wondering what the differences between them are, you can read more here.
The app makes use of the data coming from awesome SimpleGeo and it’s integrated with Google Maps. It basically searches for things near you. (it searches for coffee places by default).
or lets say you want a list:
Overall we think PhoneGap and jQuery Mobile are great solutions for people who already have experience with web technologies and don’t want to fight with Android or Cocoa Frameworks. We plan to write more about our experience with Backbone.js and more about our adventures with mobile development in the future so please stay tuned.
