Now a days there are so many platforms available for mobile apps like the iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and so on.
Earlier, people who wanted to develop any app for these platforms need to learn and understand the platform’s API, its programming languages, and so on.
But this learning process was surely time consuming. This is where PhoneGap comes for the rescue.
PhoneGap is an open-source cross-platform Mobile Application development framework by Adobe System
To develop apps using PhoneGap, the developer does not require to have knowledge of mobile programming language or platform specific API’s but
PhoneGap can be used to build applications that target multiple platforms,
including Apple iOS, Google Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, HP WebOS, Symbian, and Bada.
PhoneGap simply allows you to create a native app in a way similar you build a website.
This feature of PhoneGap makes it great because working on web technologies is a simpler task and more people are aware of them.
It can access hardware features like GPS, accelerometer, camera, sound and many more
Some Advantages of PhoneGap
1. PhoneGap is an amazing technology, since it allows us to develop platform independent.
Through PhoneGap, we can write our code once and can be compiled and deployed over a vast number of platforms.
3. free and open source framework
