Table of ContentsWhen setting up the concept of the book, we worked hard to ensure a delicate balance between basic knowledge and the current state of the art. Please note that changes to chapter titles are still possible.

The Mobile Book Addendum: Mobile PlatformsInitially, we wanted to cover all popular mobile topics within the printed book, but because some chapters took more time to write and review than planned, we decided to release them in an addendum to the printed book. All buyers of the Mobile Book will get the Addendum for free end of January 2013. The eBook will provide insights into design and development for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, as well as introduce developing and debugging techniques for advanced HTML5 Web applications and explore UX patterns on these platforms.

"This book is worth buying and reading for yourself. It really covers many aspects of modern website production in eleven in-depth chapters. There will likely be a few you don’t care for — we all have our own tastes — but I’d be surprised if any genuinely leave you disappointed given the chance. I was quite prepared to write something less positive, the first Smashing Book didn’t excite me, but this one very much did." David Bushell — In his Blog
