The problem: I am taking an existing, 5 year old, html based MMORTS game and "HTML5-ing" it, "AJAX-ing" it and most importantly, optimizing for mobile devices like iPhone, android etc. For these devices, the application will be packaged as a downloadable app that is a wrapper for a browser which actually shows the game..

The Question Looking for a good book, or books, or in-depth articles that would help me learn:

  1. what tools I have in iOS, andriod applications for optimizing an html based game. things like caching of images, etc
  2. what kind of connectivity, or interactivity I can expect between the html/javascript pages and the wrapper - can I play sounds in the wrapper by triggering them from javascript? etc
  3. tip and tricks to optimize html/html5 & Javascript application to run well on mobile devices
  4. ETC :)

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!!

I've not read or purchased it but this book (and the Impact framework) seem to be getting some positive feedback.
