What is PhoneGap ? Ajaxian "Ben and I have been promoting PhoneGap as a great solution for Web developers to create applications with the technology they know and love, without having to jump off of the cliff to other proprietary worlds. PhoneGap is still new, but gets more impressive every day."
InfoWorld "If I worked at RIM, I'd take a trip out to Vancouver to talk to the Nitobi dudes. This framework is exactly what RIM needs to counter the trend of developers targeting the iPhone/iPod as the premier environment for mobile device applications."
Why PhoneGap ? Lets go back to where we all start: Mobile Web Development.
And back to our original question: Why PhoneGap ?
Why PhoneGap ? Today, mobile development is a mess.
A Mess ? Iphone SDK ( using Objective-C ) Android SDK ( using Java ) BlackBerry ( using JavaME )
Why PhoneGap ? “ We aim to change that by enabling web technologies to work with native device features such as geo-location and accelerometers. In PhoneGap, we're building a cross-platform framework for device-neutral mobile development.”
