Phonegap, iFrame, Credentials...

Using an iFrame in Phonegap... but the page I'm 'iFraming' is on a server that requires authentication... It doesn't prompt for credentials though... Bummer! That is that plan out of the window! Any ideas guys?!

Got to love jQuery

jQuery never fails to amaze me. Even a run of the mill developer like me can create some stunning effects inside a web page. Recently I've been using the overlay function in the jQuery tools.

Next I plan on looking at jQuery mobile in conjunction with phonegap for some Android development... although I doubt that a recent idea I shared with @PaulOBrien will work with phonegap out of the box (due its lack of interaction ability with the notification bar). However I have discovered that there is a plugin that may help with that.

Not a software development post this but more an admiration of my fellow developers, in particular the guys who work on developing XBMC, the free, open source media center software for Windows, Linux, OSX, iOS etc.

It is often difficult to believe that such a fantastic, feature packed, slick and polished product is free! Anyone wanting to know more info should click here: or

Well worth a donation to support those guys I think!
