This book does an excellent job of providing an introduction to the leading HTML5 technologies – JQuery Mobile, PhoneGap and Sencha Touch.

This book is well organized and easy to follow with clear instructions for using these technologies to build basic applications. While I can enthusiastically recommend this book as an excellent starting point, further reading is necessary to build an app with high performance and seamless UI.

A more definitive guide to mobile javascript app development would need to include more information on troubleshooting the UI and performance issues associated with html5 mobile development.
