The much smaller screens on mobile devices present unique challenges for user interface design. We'll look at how jQuery Mobile adopts successful UI design patterns and offers useful UI widgets to give visitors to your pages easy access to a wide variety of content and interactions.
We can leverage many useful capabilities on mobile devices - capabilities that don't exist, in quite the same way or at all, on desktops - when building sites for phones: making a call, sending a text message, exploiting our current location, and other mobile-specific features. We can also customize our sites and apps for phone by adding icons appropriate for bookmarks and home screens. These strategies aren't strictly jQuery Mobile-based but fit in nicely with web development aimed at phones.
jQuery Mobile offers an extensive theme framework, allowing you the convenience of selecting from preexisting styles - based on well-established design patterns optimized for mobile use - but also the ability to customize the layout and style of your sites.
