Ionic in Action teaches web developers how to build cross-platform mobile apps for phones and tablets. It helps them extend their web development skills to build apps that are indistinguishable from native iOS or Android projects. With carefully explained examples the book shows how to build several mobile apps that demonstrate mobile-specific features such as GPS, camera, notifications, UI controls, and integrating with external data sources. Lastly, the book covers ways to test apps to improve stability and catch errors during development.

ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY
AngularJS is the most popular web development framework for browser-based applications. Ionic, an open source framework, blends the best features of AngularJS with Cordova (previously known as Phonegap) to package web applications into a native-quality mobile app. The book teaches how to build mobile apps for phones and tablets that work on both Apple or Google based operating systems, iOS and Android.
