Live Demo of the Task Tango App

Here's a live demo of the Task Tango to-do list app from Chapter 12 of the book. Tap the button below to launch the app.

For best results, view it on your mobile device. It's been tested on an iPhone 3G and 4, but it should work on other devices too. Any problems, let us know.

When you first open the app, tap Sign Up to register as a new user. You can then start adding to-dos! Also try adding the app to your iOS home screen to see the cute icon. :)

Book Corrections

First Edition

Chapter 6 ("Adding Dialogs"), pp78-81
The example page includes data-rel="back" on the Contact Deleted dialog's OK button, but this button actually returns you to the previous dialog, not to the Home page as mentioned in the text. This is expected jQuery Mobile behavior. To make the OK button return to the Home page, remove data-rel="back" from the link.
Chapter 7 ("Creating Forms"), p96
jQuery Mobile currently only supports the step attribute when changing values via the keyboard or spinner control. The step attribute is ignored when dragging the slider handle. This is currently being worked on (view pull request). There's also a patch available.
