This article is second in a two-part "Android and iPhone browser wars" series about developing browser-based applications for iPhone and Android. In Part 1, we introduce WebKit, the browser engine at the heart of the browser in iPhone and Android. In this article, we dig deeper by building a network management application that runs on both the iPhone and Android browsers. The application demonstrates browser-local SQL storage and Ajax, key technologies that enable a rich application experience from within the mobile browser. Additionally, the application leverages the popular jQuery JavaScript library.
