In my Phonegap 3.0 revamp I am trying these out. They are pretty cool. Seems very simple and eliminates having to design two different menu UI for Android and iOS.

In your book will you be discussing icons? One thing that is a drag with JQM is not being able to easily place your own icons. You have to deal with the background circle and shadow. I have been able to use my own but geez it is like a css nightmare to get it set up.

I talk about the default icons, but not new ones. Andy Matthews (the coauthor) discusses custom theming and _may_ cover that.

I did not explicitly cover custom icons for panels.

I think he meant custom icons in general.

Yes custom icons in general. I chatted with Andy briefly on GitHub. In JQM you should be able to swap out all their icons and those stupid circles behind them very easily. I had to hack the JQM CSS and can't even remember what I did, which presents problems when I update. It ends up looking pretty cool but is a challenge to replicate. I can't post a screenshot or I would show you guys.

Just a thought.
