PhoneGap breaches the gap between smart phone development and HTML. Follow the instructions on PhoneGap homepage on how to install it into Xcode. once up and running you will start all your Xcode projects as PhoneGap based projects. PhoneGap
PhoneGap The only file you need to work with is the index.html file. But if you want to interact with the iPhone hardware you should take a closer look into “phonegap.js”. Accessing the phone book, camera, gyroscope and so on is pretty straight forward. More info: http://wiki.phonegap.com /
In reality you could do without this library. But JQTouch will make you application look and feel like the “real” thing. Button, colors, menus and so on looking like pure iPhone stuff. JQTouch
HTML5 HTML 5 is needed as a repository for data. You can store larger amounts of data in the SQL database. Settings are stored in local storage and session specific data in the session storage. Use Safari for initial development and make Web Inspector your friend.
