There is a great news for MobilizeToday.com users... Ready? Now you may build mobile websites based on jQueryMobile framework! Mobile websites made using our solution with jQueryMobile framework can be used for your own needs or offered to your customers.

What is jQueryMobile?

jQuery Mobile is a touch-optimized web framework currently being developed by the jQuery project team. The development focuses on creating a framework compatible with a wide variety of smartphones and tablet computers, made necessary by the growing but heterogeneous tablet and smartphone market. It's becoming more and more popular from the time of its first release in November 2011. You may definitely read more about this framework by following jQueryMobile official website.

How does it work?

As you probably know we use widgets-based concept to map existing desktop websites into their mobile representation. For instance, we take some part of the content and transform it on-the-fly into another presentation. This is to achieve better appeal on touch screen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. This transformation is made by the widget selected for this particular content. By default it works using widgets based on our own framework designed for small and medium touch screens. This time we use the same transformation but based on jQueryMobile presentation. After getting some experience developing jQMobile WordPress theme we've developed a set of widgets that use benefits of this great mobile optimized framework.

Are there changes to pricing?

No. The prices are the same. It's up to you what framework should be used to represent your mobile website. You may have both versions if you want to :-)

What do I need to start?
