By popular demand, I’ve been working on several mobile applications in the last couple of months. I’ve come to love jQuery Mobile (jQM) for it’s simplicity and ease-of-use. I also love the rich UI components, tools that make creating apps easy, much more. A super cool friend, Adegbenga Agoro, asked for a short introduction to jQM and this post is a result of that intro. This is a sharp-sharp (Nigerian slang for quick) introduction to jQuery mobile. It showcases my favorite tools and resources for working with jQM.
