The unprecedented success of iPhone and iPod touch serves as proof positive that application developers are entering uncharted territory when it comes to creating sophisticated, multi-functional mobile applications for the revolutionary interface design of the touch screen. The Safari-exclusive applications for these Apple devices assemble elements of Web 2.0 apps, traditional desktop apps, multimedia video and audio, and the cell phone. this book shows you how to integrate these various elements with key design concepts and principles in order to develop a highly usable interface for the touch screen.

You'll learn to use existing open-source libraries in your code, imitate the overall look and feel of built-in Apple applications, and migrate existing Web 2.0 apps and sites to this new mobile platform. Along the way, you'll discover how to design a user interface that is optimized for the touch-screen display. By the end of the book, you'll feel untouchable as you create a custom mobile application from scratch.
