Presentation: Fake it 'til you make it

From my presentation at StarTech, here are my slides.

Fake it 'til you make it shows some code and examples on how to make a web app look more like a native mobile application. This can provide a way to build quick prototypes or to build using familiar technologies.

Thanks for sharing these slides. I am getting ready to take a deeper dive into iOS, because I want to learn more about the native SDK and working with the camera, address book, etc. I like where the mobile web is headed as far as HTML, but I want to learn both sides of the fence to better understand what works better where, and why. Have you done much with iOS development?

Thanks snook, good read as always. Sencha doesn't always play nice with Android webkit and is quite large for that first load (but v2 coming soon). Appcelerator heaps of random crashes you only see towards the end of a large app, lets hope they will put some of that 150m towards fixing them soon. but all these beats wrapping my brain around obj-c syntax.

Great overview, didn't know about navigator.standalone. Bookmarked for the new year when I'll be starting our hybrid native / web app; thanks.

For a retina display start-up image you can use:

<link rel="apple-touch-startup-image" media="(max-device-width: 480px) and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2)" href="images/retina_startup.png" />

Doesn't work in the simulator but does on devices!
