- [Voiceover] Hi, this is Chris Converse, and in this course, we're going to take a web-based project and convert it into a native application for iPad using PhoneGap Build. This online service from Adobe allows us to upload a .zip archive of our web experience, and they'll compile native applications from multiple mobile platforms, right on the website. In this course, I'm going to be starting from a previous lynda.com project, where we created a web-based application for iPad. And we're going to use PhoneGap Build to convert that web experience into a native application. Now, you don't need to be working from a web application to get this to work.
You can use any HTML file to compile a native application in PhoneGap Build. So, with that, grab your web files, and let's create a native application for iPad.
Q: Do I need a Macintosh to create a signing certificate?
A: No. There are ways to create a certificate in Windows. There's an article explaining the process at http://www.tomasmcguinness.com/2012/06/28/generating-an-apple-ios-certificate-using-windows/.
