Creating apps without learning object-oriented programming? Yes, it's possible!
source mobile platform bridges the "gap" between Web and native
as the address book, camera, accelerometer, file system and more via
language such as Objective-C or Java! Compile, test and distribute on up
to 6 platforms: Android, BlackBerry, iOS, Palm, Symbian, and Windows
Mobile. PhoneGap is completely open source under MIT license.
built using a plugin architecture so you can include only the device
features you need or add additional features as necessary. Wherever
possible, the PhoneGap API's to access native features follow the
specifications from the Device Independence working group at the W3C.
Thus, PhoneGap is working to make itself obsolete! When the mobile
browsers implement these device specifications, the PhoneGap bridge will
no longer be necessary but PhoneGap applications will already implement
frameworks such as Sencha Touch, JQTouch, XUI and others to provide a
native UI look and feel for several platforms.
