Android 1 – iPhone 0 (eventually sorted though)
I have used PhoneGap before without the aid of Dreamweaver and although it works well the setup process is a little complex and I never really got it working for IPhone on my Mac. A lot of students have been asking for training sessions for writing apps so I thought that the CS5.5 / PhoneGap integration might streamline the whole process. As with most things Adobe do the workflow is very simple and when using the jQuery mobile template and exporting out to Android everything worked really well. The problems came when I started trying to export for the IPhone (Surprise surprise). The main issue was that once I pointed the setting to the the developer folder at the root of my hard drive and clicked build and emulate I got an error:
The build of application failed to complete successfully
After hunting round in the settings for a while I decided to hit up Google. I found the solution in the Adobe forums, here is the link:
I was unsure if I was supposed to change the camera.h file @
/Applications/Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5/Configuration/NativeAppFramework/DWPhoneGap
So I changed them both for good measure and everything now works fine.
