jQuery Mobile 1.4 Supported Platforms


Platform support in 1.4

We use a 3-level graded platform support system: A (full), B (full minus Ajax), C (basic HTML). The visual fidelity of the experience and smoothness of page transitions are highly dependent on the CSS rendering capabilities of the device and platform so not all A grade experience will be pixel-perfect but that’s the nature of the web.

A-grade - Full enhanced experience with Ajax-based animated page transitions.
