In this course Joseph Lowery shows how to develop HTML5 applications for the two mobile operating systems supported in Dreamweaver iOS and Android and generate a native app for each OS suitable for testing with the open-source PhoneGap framework. The course covers basic app creation including working with the built-in starter pages in Dreamweaver as well as creating custom apps from scratch.
