FxOS Unit Converter App
It is a basic app, which lets you convert basic quantities like Length, Weight, Volume, Temperature, Speed and Time into the units of your choice.
I built the interface using jQuery Mobile. Jquery Mobile documentation is not the usual type, its just a collection of examples. This helped me to get on terms with the framework very quickly.
For source code visit :
I submitted the app to the Firefox Marketplace yesterday. It would get published on the Marketplace after it gets approved by Mozilla.
But since i'm too impatient, I went ahead and hosted the app using Github pages at http://psbots.github.io/FxOS-unit-converter/
Note: The buttons may appear "extra long" on a desktop browser. Why? Because jQuery Mobile is Responsive and adapts to the screen size!
The app can also be installed by visiting the above link in the simulator add-on in the Firefox browser.
Looking forward to developing more Apps! Way to go Mozilla!
