HTML5 can be used in Windows Phone application development.

Leveraging HTML5 allows publishing a same application on several platforms reusing a maximum of code. Tools and frameworks such as Apache Cordova (previously known as PhoneGap) allow to "wrap" the HTML5 and JavaScript code into a native application using the WebBrowser control.

In this video you can watch a rapid demo of the following:

  • Integration of the HTML5 code into an Apache Cordova solution within Visual Studio to generate a Windows Phone application
  • The jQueryMobile theme for Windows Phone (Metro style) is applied to better integrate the application into the Windows Phone experience
