Mobile Web: Adam King

My mobile web project ending up mostly being rather disappointing compared to what I originally planned due to constant struggling with JavaScript/HTML/Cordova and time constraints.  However, it was probably one of the largest learning experiences of all of the projects.  The app is a simple media player and recorder.  I created a CordovaPlugin to get […]
