PhoneGap is an application framework that enables you to build natively installed applications using HTML and JavaScript.  The easiest way to think of PhoneGap is a web view container that is 100% width and 100% height, with a JavaScript programming interface that allows you to access underlying operating system features.  You build your user interface using traditional web development skills (HTML, CSS, & JavaScript), and use the PhoneGap container to deploy to different application ecosystems and devices.  When packaged for deployment, the PhoneGap application is a binary distributable file that can be distributed by the “normal” application marketplaces (iTunes, Google App Market, Amazon Market, etc…) cialis pills online.

PhoneGap is 100% open source, and also goes by the Apache name “Cordova”.  You can read more about Apache Cordova project status at:

PhoneGap can be used to build applications that target multiple platforms, including Apple iOS, Google Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, HP WebOS, Symbian, and Bada.

How do I get started in PhoneGap?

Getting started in PhoneGap is easy.   For 90% of a PhoneGap application, all you need is a text editor.  PhoneGap also integrates with device-specific development environments very easily.   You can view “getting started” guides for all application platforms at the links below:

When developing PhoneGap applications, just keep in mind that you are running code inside of a web browser instance.   You develop your applications using HTML and JavaScript, not native code, so you don’t need anything special.   In fact, I personally do most of my development on the desktop using an HTML editor and the Chrome browser.  When I need device-specific functionality, or I need to test on a device, then I switch over the the device-specific environments.
