- Creating Fast Buttons for Mobile Web Applications - Google Mobile Developer Products - Google Code
Here at Google, we’re constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in a mobile web application.

- Creating mobile Web applications with HTML 5, Part 2: Unlock local storage for mobile Web applications with HTML 5
One of the most useful new features in HTML 5 is the standardization of local storage. Finally, Web developers can stop trying to fit all client-side data into 4 KB Cookies. Now you can store large amounts of data on the client with a simple API. This is a perfect mechanism for caching, so you can dramatically improve the speed of your application—a critical factor for mobile Web applications that rely on much slower connections than their desktop brothers. In this second article in this series on HTML 5, you will see how to use local storage, how to debug it, and you will see a variety of ways to use it to improve mobile Web applications.
- CSS Techniques for Retina Displays
As many people use their highly portable devices for work and play, device manufacturers seek to enhance their user experience, making their devices simultaneously more powerful and easier to use. Apple gave us a completely new line-up of products that introduced double density pixel screens, creating sharper images on smaller screens. Other device manufacturers are following suit with their own version of high pixel density screens. While this is undoubtedly a boon for consumers and end users, it can present a challenge to web developers and designers to make their websites and apps compatible with such Retina displays. It was then that web developers realized how old fashioned the web is and how websites looked “non-living” on such displays.
- Developing hybrid applications for Android? Try mobile web tools in Rational Application Developer with Android Eclipse SDK
Using web technologies to develop native mobile applications has become a popular solution when writing applications for multiple smartphone platforms. Such applications are typically labeled as "hybrid", referring to the mix of native code and web code running inside the application. As far as development tools are concerned, different options exist for different platforms. In this post I focus on a method for developing in the hybrid model for the Android platform because of the easy integration between the tools for native development on the Eclipse platform. More specifically the Android Development Tools (ADT) plug-ins for Eclipse will be used for native Android development, Rational Application Developer (RAD) tools for web development. Lastly the

- Enable HTML5 Offline Web Application with Dojo 1.7 (Web 2.0 and Mobile Development Community)
HTML5 offline web application is a wonderful technology that let web applications work without network connection, which is especially useful for mobile web applications since wireless network is not as stable as wire network is. According to W3C specification of offline web application, developers needs to provide a manifest file if they want to enable the offline cache capability. The manifest file lists all the resources that will be offline cached and needs to be referenced in HTML page like this. <html manifest=”cache.appcache”> The cache.appcache needs to be served as “text/cache-manifest” content-type and the browser will fetch all of the resource files in the manifest during the first load or whenever the content of manifest is updated.
