PhoneGap lets you develop cross-platform apps
PhoneGap is an open source framework that allows developers to create hybrid apps – these are web applications that run on different mobile devices. PhoneGap enables developers to develop web application (app), integrate it into the PhoneGap framework and, with the help of this framework, create a cross-platform app that will act like a native application on tablets or smartphones. This is why PhoneGap represents a step forward in app development: apps can be developed quickly, efficiently and cheaply because developers can take advantage of flexible cross-platform app development with PhoneGap.
PhoneGap makes work easier for app developers
Before PhoneGap existed, there was the following problem: applications needed to be developed and maintained for multiple platforms depending on whether the app was intended for Apple’s own iOS system or Android products. Each of these platforms has its own programming environment and language. There is also a difference between the mobile devices smartphones and tablets. Sometimes, the design and user interface could be used again by the developer, but the source code could not. The advantage of PhoneGap is that only the structure and construction of an application will need to be developed for various mobile platforms. Then only minor adjustments will need to be made for it to run smoothly on the various platforms.
The development process has become much more efficient as a result. PhoneGap lets applications be developed for various mobile platforms much more quickly and without any great additional effort. PhoneGap is produced by Nitobi, which became part of the Adobe Systems Group in 2011.
