Hamishwillee - Thanks for the competition entry

Hi Tommi

Thanks for entering! I've edited this for wiki style - please check it still does what you want. In summary, added a few more categories and removed "Draft" category, used Template:Icode to mark up inline code (in monospace), made the gallery images bigger, used bold to mark up filename, used "code javascript" for better markup of javascript code blocks.

In terms of the app UI (ie does not affect judging of article) I found it odd to have the Back button as something I needed to scroll too - might be worth adding a toolbar with a standard back button?

As a rule I find these "how I created a whole app" articles less useful than "how I did specific action" - simply because documentation on specific tasks is more hidden. That said, you've done a fine job. My thoughts on "further improvement":

  • I would make would be to extend the section on password manager to explain how this works - there doesn't appear to be anything much useful in the reference documentation and its not obvious from the code itself. This might therefore be worth its own article and a link
  • Did you use the Codiqua drag'n drop tool on jQuery mobile or constructed it from scratch. If so it is worth saying that you used this - and how you went about integrating it with the wgt framework.
  • If you have something to say on the topic, might be worth explaining why you used the jquery mobile rather than the Nokia UI components, and what the cost/benefit of doing so is

Thanks again!

Wmseto - Cloud Preview?

This is cool. I am able to use local preview and see the JQuery Mobile framework, but with Cloud Preview, the style is not showing. Any ideas?

Eetomla - Improvement ideas

Hamish: Thanks Hamish for the editing and ideas. Indeed it makes sense to spin off some of those articles as their own since there are much more I'd like to write about more specifically.

I didn't use drag'n drop tools for the UI - I wrote all the HTML and JavaScript by hand and indeed I might write an article about that too :)

Wmseto: I really don't know why Cloud Preview is behaving like that. I'll send some feedback to Web Tools forum so maybe someone could take a look into that.
