Update: Following the release of PhoneGap 1.0 and XCode 4 I have updated the Git repository to include a version built with PhoneGap 0.9x (the original version) and a separate version for PhoneGap 1.xx+.
Update: Due to some issues with the recent versions of Cordova I have updated the Git repository to also include a version built with Cordova 1.7.0.
My 2010 post about loading data into a PhoneGap application is by far the most viewed page of my blog so I thought I’d revisit it and write an article about a more efficient method I have been using, following the release of jQuery 1.5.
Previously I had been using the wonderful JSONp jQuery plugin because jQuery 1.4 and lower did not support out of the box error handlers for JSON requests. jQuery 1.5 does, however, and it’s made things simpler and more streamlined.
