The number of people using their smartphones or tablets to access the web has grown to the point where having a presence on mobile devices has become a must for anyone with a website. But to be truly successful your mobile presence has to differentiate itself from the mobile web entirely and straddle that line between web and native application. In the past this meant having specific styles and often views for each specific mobile platform you wanted to target, but this is no longer necessary thanks to Kendo UI Mobile. In this talk Keith will demonstrate how using HTML5 and Kendo UI Mobile you can write one application with a single set of styles and views that looks truly native on iOS, Android, and Blackberry. Keith will walk through creating a mobile application from start to finish including how to use PhoneGap to package and deploy your website to the major mobile application stores.

You will learn:

  • You don't have to use Objective-C and Java
  • You can leverage your web skills
  • You can provide a native UI for each platform without a ton of work
