Do you own a business or an enterprise? Are you worried about how your applications would look like or could be accessed from different smartphone devices and how easily accessible and navigable your business could be to your potential customers? Since Android and iOS are the two trendiest platforms in the world of smart devices, coders are targeting these two and getting motivated towards creating separate apps for different devices. Needless to say, their most preferred choice is PhoneGap.
PhoneGap Application Development
In order to refrain from the additional efforts of writing separate codes, business owners and developers are now trying to preponderate all mobile platforms with a single codebase. Thus, before building an app or before creating a website for any business, it is imperative that the developer considers cross platform development. By using PhoneGap, coders can build native apps for any smart device while keeping the features of a native app intact.
Salient Features of PhoneGap
PhoneGap plug-in is an addition of the PhoneGap feature. It uses a piece of functionality on the phone. Plug-in functionality may be able to access native features of the phone or it may provide the functionality to access cloud services.
What gives PhoneGap an edge over other application development frameworks?
If we choose to go with doing native development, we will have to be prepared to manage two code bases, Android and iOS. That would mean every modification, every new feature incorporated, every bug fix would have to be done two times over. PhoneGap facilitates Cross Platform development by helping the developers build apps that can be easily transferred from one platform to another. This also offers the advantage to leverage the existing skills of the coders and developers in the development team. This is how PhoneGap saves you time and money.
Being a mobile app development framework, PhoneGap is is based upon the open source Apache Cordova project. The core engine of PhoneGap is hundred percent open source underneath the Apache Cordova Project.
