I really ask myself whether the author even bothered to test his "app" on a real Android device.The truth: it does not work. The app is based on JQTouch and even the demos on the JQTouch homepage are intended for iphone and do not really work on Android (I use Samsung Galaxy S, currently the Android bestseller).The screenshots in the book are not taken on an Android device and I just can't make the pages look like they do in the book. Neither in Chrome, Firefox, and certainly not on the Samsung (they do look different on all three browsers, though :-)JQTouch would be great and the webapps actually look great on my iphone - but not on Android.So if you are looking into real cross plattform developing, you might want to skip jqtouch (and this book).
