  • 4. What is PhoneGap PhoneGap is an open-source mobile development framework  Developed by Nitobi Software  Bought by Adobe Enables buildingof mobile device applications using JavaScript, HTML and CSS  Ruby can be used as well  Instead of often less-known languages such as Objective-C
  • 5. PhoneGap Applications The PhoneGap applications are hybrid  They are neither truly native nor purely web based  All layout rendering is done via the web view instead of Objective-C  Much of the functions of HTML5 are supported A disadvantage is that hybrid applications do not have full access to the device API  Camera, compass, accelerometer, etc.
  • 6. Supported Platforms PhoneGap currently supports development for the following operating systems  iOS, Android, webOS, Windows Mobile, Symbian OS and BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7 Mango  Bada support is "coming soon"  The OS used by the Samsung Wave S8500
  • 7. How does it work? Build your app once with web-standards  Based on HTML5 Wrap it up with PhoneGap  Using the free open source framework or PhoneGap build  You can access the native APIs Deploy to multiple platforms  Standards-based web technologies to bridge web applications and mobile devices
  • 8. Means of Development
  • 9. Means of PhoneGap Development PhoneGap is just a library that you must include in your app  Couple of JavaScript and xml files What is PhoneGap doing?  PhoneGap generates a out-of-the-browser window that executes the HTML and JavaScript  Due to a couple of xml and jar/dll files it enables the usage of native APIs
  • 10. Where Can we Develop? Native IDE for the corresponding OS  Eclipse, Xcode, Visual Studio, etc.  Abode launched a new version of Dreamweaver that integrates with PhoneGap  Build the web site  Add the mobile SDKs  Say it is mobile app  Build and deploy In both the concrete OS SDK must be present
  • 11. Pros and ConsOf PhoneGap Development
  • 12. Pros of PhoneGap Development HTML5, CSS and JavaScript skills vs. Objective-C, Java and C# Single code base for all platforms  iOS, Android, WP 7 Mango, mobile web You can take advantage of distribution and integrated payment  Via the App Store or Android Market
  • 13. Cons of PhoneGap Development Poor performance  If your app is graphically intense, i.e. a game.  Caching or leveraging some 3rd party solutions may be implemented with native graphics  For the most part a native app is much faster/smoother than mobile web app
  • 14. Cons of PhoneGap Development (2) Lack of pre-built UI widgets, transitions, standard controls, etc.  Your development time can take longer  Especially if you want a polished-looking app with a native look and feel
  • 15. Conclusion PhoneGap is a cross-platform mobile development framework  Based on HTML5 and JavaScript  Using web standards PhoneGap is useful  For creation of small apps  When there is a lack of human resources  Need a single app deployed on many OS Native app developments is always better!
