Improved jqMobi Version 1.1 Emerges from Beta
LANCASTER, Pa. – MobilityWire® – August 30, 2012
Badoo is a leading global social network with over 150 million users. The company has been a very active open source participant in the jqMobi project, contributing important enhancements that include native scrolling in iOS, optimized long list scrolling, and built-in memory cleanup for plugins. Badoo performed extensive testing of its jqMobi-based Web app prior to rolling it out to their worldwide user base in mid-August. The app can be seen by navigating to http://badoo.com/ on an iOS or Android-based mobile device.
This deployment marks the first time that an off-the-shelf mobile app framework has been deployed on a worldwide scale. jqMobi was recently tested independently and has proven to deliver the best user experience on mobile devices. http://www.codefessions.com/2012/08/performance-of-jquery-compatible-mobile.html
the improvements contributed to the jqMobi project by Badoo, appMobi and others are now available to all. jqMobi version 1.1 is now available in general release. Among other enhancements, 1.1 contains upgrades to existing plugins like css3Animate and carousel, and objects can now register jqMobi events, previously only available to DOM nodes. 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. A new touchLayer plugin provides a delay-free touch input that works identically on iOS and Android.
jqMobi 1.1 is available free as an open source project at https://github.com/appmobi/jq.mobi.
