PhoneGap App Development -An Overview


Published on

PhoneGap is a one of the most popular mobile development framework that allows builds Applications for mobile platform like android, iOS, Ms Windows Phone, Blackberry, Bada, Symbian, WebOS and Tizen. This is also an ideal solution for those enthusiastic about developing a program that can run on several devices with the same code. This is perfect for mobile app developers who want to start with mobile app development and can make use of their current abilities on a common system rather than with a device-specific collected terminology.

PhoneGap allows developers to make a distinct app which can be used in different systems. One can make several apps related to company, enjoyment, games, and social networking. Also, one can use third-party incorporation.

Mobilepundits is a leading PhoneGap Development Company has team of skilled and experience mobile and PhoneGap Developers who develops apps for many platforms that suit for business needs.

    3. 3. What is Phonegap Phonegap is an open source development tool for building fast and easy mobile apps with JavaScript, HTML and CSS.Phonegap Supports development for ios,Android, Blackberry and Windows. PhoneGap is also known as Apache Cordova is a technology that lets programmers build mobile application and then wrap it the PhoneGap Framework that can be installed as a native mobile app.
    4. 4. So What is PhoneGap??
    5. 5. Why Phonegap ?? PhoneGap, an open-source mobile framework, offers an alternative: It helps developers build a common codebase for their apps so the apps work across devices and systems. PhoneGap is an application framework that allows developers to use HTML, JavaScript and CSS to create apps that are present as first-class applications on the phone. PhoneGap apps are standards compliant, they’re future-proofed to work with browsers as they evolve. Thousands of apps built using PhoneGap are available in mobile app stores and directories.
    6. 6. Cross Platform Mobile App Development & PhoneGap
    7. 7. Phonegap Architecture
    8. 8. ksHow Phonegap Works??  PhoneGap generally uses standards based web technologies to bridge web apps and mobile devices.  Using the free open source framework or PhoneGap build you can get access to native APIs.  Deploy to multiple platform.  Build your app once with web standards.
    9. 9. How Phonegap Works??
    10. 10. Phonegap Build
    11. 11. Phonegap Build Service Using PhoneGap we can crate Build Native web apps There are some factors the web does very effectively and there are also some factors native applications do very effectively. PhoeGap is designed for the partnership of these. Using HTML, CSS or JavaScript Write applications Upload it to the PhoneGap Build Service. Get back app store ready applications for Apple ios, Android OS, Symbian and Blackberry. Existing development also supports windows, MeeGo and Bada. PhoneGap Build service is now in beta testing and it is totally free to register and use will be free for open source project.
    12. 12. Phonegap Development Cost PhoneGap is an open source implementation ,of open standards and free .That means developers and companies can use PhoneGap for mobile applications that are free, commercial, open source, or any combination of these.
    13. 13. PhoneGap Challenges Although PhoneGap Framework provides advantages on cost, time and effort, with the current generation of release, it has a few concerns to be addressed yet.  The container layer does not provide sufficient options for developers to measure and optimize the app performance.  PhoneGap framework is not optimized to build graphic intensive user interface.  Compared to ios and Android, PhoneGap lacks strong document based support for programmers.
    14. 14. Pros for PhoneGap You can use the single codebase for your cross platform applications. PhoneGap apps install just like a native application, and are able to leverage app store discoverability. PhoneGap follows a plug-in architecture, which means that access to native device APIs can be extended in a modular way. PhoneGap is open source and free, so there are no licensing cost. With your existing skills you can build anything you can imagine and deploy it to iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, webOS and Symbian. You can leverage the hardware specific features such as Geolocation, Vibration, Accelerometer, Contact support and sound.
    15. 15. Cons for PhoneGap If your mobile app includes too many graphic elements, performance could be a big issue. Not so clear information and directions for user- interface and other best practices to make the app better. Documentation is also not so descriptive and at times also lack crucial information required for the development. Several Platform core features may still not be available via PhoneGap .
    16. 16. Platform specific native apps seem to be slowly fading away into a niche or need basis. HTML/JS is easier to deal with than Java. If you want to produce an app or deploy to multiple platforms at reasonable cost then PhoneGap is the way to go Conclusion
