Improved jqMobi version 1.1 beta also released
LANCASTER, Pa. – MobilityWire® – August 6, 2012
With appStarter, a jqMobi developer can easily create a full featured, multi-page HTML5 app in minutes. A short demonstration video of appStarter is available at http://youtu.be/qQi9JTxADC4. appStarter is offered as a free service and developers can sign up at http://www.jqmobi.com/index.php?appstarter.
jqMobi version 1.1 adds numerous performance and user experience enhancements, including native scrolling in iOS, optimized long list scrolling and built-in memory cleanup for plugins. In 1.1, objects can now register jqMobi events, previously only available to DOM nodes.
The new version contains improvements to existing plugins like css3Animate and carousel. A new touchLayer plugin provides a delay-free touch input that works identically on iOS and Android. A new repository has been created to house jqMobi plugins, making it easier for developers to pick and choose needed functionality when they are building apps.
jqMobi 1.1 continues jqMobi’s reign as the industry’s best performing mobile HTML5 framework. Beta tester Gareth Elms, an ASP.NET and HTML5 developer from Manchester, UK said “jqMobi 1.0 was fast. I’m just testing the 1.1 beta and it’s even faster! Page transitions give a native experience even on iPod 3rd gen.”
Developers can participate in the jqMobi 1.1 beta test program by visiting https://github.com/appmobi/jq.mobi/tree/beta.
