My company is looking to do more mobile development.  I'm new to mobile development, but not to html/css.  I'm currecntly a .net developer.  What is the preferred architecture for mobile apps?  MVC?  Are there any good resources were I should start?

As a web developer, it is easy to store data in a database.  What does one do for mobile apps?  Web Services?  What do you do if your mobile application is data-driven, and there isn't any data connection?

Sorry for so many questions, I'm just in the beginning stages of mobile development.

thanks in advance,
Gene

Hi Gene,

We are advocating that you should use Kendo Mobile for mobile application design. It includes all the necessary building blocks you might need: an Application abstractions, views (pages), data binding, templates and MVVM support. You can find more information on the Kendo's site here. Also you can check out this sample or clone this one straight from Icenium Graphite.

For mobile apps you should again store data in the database and expose it via a REST service. Regarding the data-connection availability there is an API that you can use and also store the data locally in a SQLite or local storage via this APIs.

Hope this helps,
