iOS Theme for jQuery Mobile Good news! I’ve just pushed some major changes for my iOS jQuery Mobile theme. It now works with jQuery Mobile 1.1.0, which was a bit of a struggle. It also forced me to do some major code cleanup, delivering cross browser gradients and various enhancements I had been putting off. A full list of changes and resolved bugs follows: Supports jQuery Mobile...
iOS 6, Mountain Lion and Beyond
Predicting development roadmaps is something best left to the professionals.

I saw Dribbble shots (one and two) by Indian designer Pranav Pramod and was inspired to replicate the effect in CSS3. Unfortunately nothing is ever as easy as it seems. If it was, someone else would have already posted a similar effect. The problem is...
