One thing to keep in mind about this section is that a lot of these are optional tags that you can insert into your HTML code in order to embellish it even more. These are ways to add icons for the home screen, set a start-up image, and other features that you can implement to help make your web application look and feel even more like a native application to the user.
The tags we will be talking about here are iOS specific, and therefore will only work on iDevices(such as iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad). In the end, it is also up to you to style your web application the way you seem fit or necessary, as there can be no CSS that will work for every app. There are, however, CSS packages out there that have styles which mimic the general “iDevice” look, similar to when you enter the settings area in your iPhone, etc.
A last thing to keep in mind is that these are only tags specific to the mobile web application’s “look”. The HTML you need yourself to generate what content you want your page to display in the end is up to you, the developer. If you are coming to this section expecting to learn how to use HTML to display different content, then you are in the wrong section. These types of HTML knowledge you should already have some previous experience with before you wish to build some sort of web application for your users.
