My friends over at elated.com have recently released the 3rd edition of their "Master Mobile Web Apps with jQuery Mobile" e-book. I had a brief read of one of the earlier editions and it's a great book and I'll be using it as a reference at some point in the future. In the meantime, here's some info about the book and where to buy it from.
Master Mobile Web Apps with jQuery Mobile
We're delighted to announce that the third edition of our eBook, "Master Mobile Web Apps with jQuery Mobile", is now out!
The third edition is fully updated for jQuery Mobile 1.1 and 1.2, including all the data attribute changes, API changes and other improvements to the framework since 1.0. Some of the great new features covered in the book include:
- Vastly improved toolbars and transitions

We've also updated the CityChums app in Chapter 13 for PhoneGap 2.1, Xcode 4.5 and the new 4-inch Retina display on the iPhone 5, and we've tweaked it so it runs more smoothly.
