QuickConnectiPhone framework beta 2

Posted in iPhone development tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 10:51 pm by tetontech

A new version of QuickConnectiPhone is now available. It includes the ability to push Core Location and Acceleration information up into the JavaScript running in your UIWebView. It is open-source and free. You can get it from sourceForge. If you checkout my Blogroll to the lower right of this page you will find a link to the site. Or you could go directly here.

As with Beta 1 it allows you to write your application in Dashcode using HTML, JavaScript, and CSS and then install it and run it on your device. You application will then run without any network connections of any type.

It also lets you store persistent data in SQLite using the new JavaScript API to SQLite. An easy to use wrapper is provided for you within the framework. If you do choose to get data from a web server the framework provides you with an easy to use wrapper for AJAX calls that has the same API as the SQLite wrapper.

Since you are writting your application to run inside of the UIWebView can also use the new CSS transitions, animations, etc. it makes available.

Give it a try and give me some feedback.
