Hi,

I would like to ask some questions about Pro Android Web Apps book.
1. Does the book cover any JavaScript framework to build rich mobile UI?
2. Does the book explain us why we should build web apps on Android instead of native apps?
3. Does the book cover any best practices to build web apps on Android?
Thanks.

Thank you Sebastien for the explanation.
I would like to ask you again,

Does the book explain us how to use client side data storage with apps that run even when the Android device is offline?

Yes it's covered in details in chapter 3 & 4. In chapter 5 you will even see how you can synchronise local stored data with an online storage solution (once your connection is back ;-) )
