JQuery Mobile 1.0 is a JQuery and HTML 5 based library that can be used to build mobile applications that target multiple platforms and devices.

Building Mobile Applications using JQuery Mobile

Recently, I wrote a blog on building a single mobile app that targets all mobile platforms using PhoneGap. But there is one more player out there that might beat PhoenGap. This new player is JQuery Mobile.


JQuery Mobile 1.0 was launched recently and it makes sense for JQuery and Web developers to take advantage of already familiar technology. JQuery Mobile is a unified, HTML 5 based user interface system for all popular mobile device platforms. Recently, the team posted a blog saying the version 1.0 is rock solid and ready to use.

Here is a list of some of the supported platforms.

I just read a good article in MSDN magazine, Getting Started with Mobile Development using HTML 5, JQuery Mobile, and ASP.NET MVC 4.0 that talks about HTML 5, ASP.NET MVC 4 and JQuery Mobile and how to build mobile applications that target multiple platforms and devices including smart phones and tablets.

HTML 5 is one of the most talked technologies. Check out more articles, blogs and tutorials about HTML 5 here. If you are new to JQuery, you may want to start learning JQuery here
