"With jQTouch, web developers can build smartphone interfaces for their existing web applications by simply transforming an existing Document Object Model (DOM) structure into an interface that works, looks and feels like native iPhone or Android application. In this tutorial by Mambe Churchill Nanje, we will learn how to develop such an application.
