A short and sweet demo of the app we built last month in Chris Chapman's Mobile Device Deployment class at Full Sail University with Alicia Brooks, Anthony Colangelo, Kent Lassen, Tyler Matthews, Zachary Nicoll and myself.

We used jQuery Mobile Alpha 3 which was quite a bit capricious at times with a custom OOP/MVC backend in PHP/MySQL built by Anthony and Tyler. Thanks to Andrew Smith's great advice Zach and I also built an internal JavaScript API to handle calls to the PHP API and cache everything locally using HTML5 localStorage. Tyler and Anthony used the absolutely dreadful Paypal API for our credit card payment system and somehow made it work.

The interface is a bit spartan since we ended up having less time to customize jQuery Mobile than we would have wished (the entire project took 20 days) and there are still minor usability glitches due to jQuery Mobile's persistent navbar which is not yet ready for primetime but it's a decent product.
