We’ve just released a Master Class on how to build an HTML5 Mobile Web app, with geolocation, localStorage, jQuery Mobile and Backbone.js.

You can see a demo of the app here.

The Master Class is available to all Gold Members of Think Vitamin Membership. Hope you check it out!

  1. The demo web app doesn’t display on my iPhone (4.2.1) do you need to be on the latest firmware?

    • Hey Ric – I’ve emailed Jim to check on this. It’s displaying fine on all our phones so we’ll look into it.

      • Cool, it just doesn’t seem to bring any style elements through on my phone. I have JavaScript turned on in Safari options. If it helps here’s a screenshot from my phone:
        It is jailbroken, but I don’t have anything unusual installed. Tried it on my friends Andriod and it worked great!

          Hey Ric,

          Looking at that screenshot it looks like there may be a JavaScript error occurring. To debug that go to System > Safari > Developer > Debug Console, and flip it on. When you reload there will be a bar on the top of the page and can see any JavaScript errors that occur.

      • Tried on another iPhone (4.2.1) unjailbroken and it worked as well. Must be my iPhone, looks like I’ll be doing a restore. Superb app by the way.

  2. To be honest, this whole HTML 5 makes me really excited about the future of online user experience.

    But there’s always a question that keeps bothering me: when there’ll be a client making an order of a fully HTML 5 based website? What I’m worried about is working with HTML 5 will be like using Flash in websites now. For browsers which don’t support Flash, put a jQuery there as the Plan B. I’m not saying I like Flash, only as an example.
