WeatherTreand – A Hybrid Mobile App

This Android app was developed as an example to show how hybrid apps can be developed using web technologies. The app was developed using HTML5 and various Java Script libraries based on the PhoneGAP shell for Android. This single screen app shows the current weather condition with five-day forecast. Several APIs were used to make this app functional: Cordova to obtain the current location from the device, Google API to obtain current address based on location, jQuery AJAX for retrieving weather JSON from a web service, jQuery mobile for the UI framework, and RGraph for drawing the HTML5 chart to display the weather trend.

Complete source code of the app is available on GitHub under MIT license.
