I’ve been playing with jQuery Mobile for the past few days. It’s an interesting little framework. I kind of like it and kind of don’t.
jQuery Mobile is built very strictly around lists. It’s not very flexible and adaptive. It’s definitely not a skin or a theme you can roll over your existing website, desktop or mobile version. That’s unfortunate. It also uses the HTML’s data attribute instead of plain id’s and classes. This is a strange design decision beyond my effort to look into (I have a life too, you know).
Has anyone used it extensively? What kind of problem was jQuery Mobile built to solve?
