PhoneGap is now being widely recognized as a game-changer for mobile application development. It is an open source framework for quickly building cross-platform mobile applications using HTML5, JavaScript and CSS. Traditionally building applications for different devices like iPhone, Android and Windows mobile and others required different frameworks and languages. However, now by using standards-based web technologies PhoneGap has bridged the gap between web applications and mobile devices. PhoneGap provides an application programming interface (API) that helps to access native operating system functionality using JavaScript. Application logic can be built using JavaScript, and the PhoneGap API handles communication with the native operating system. Phonegap Application Development The team at MDC Concepts has been delivering innovative, social, local, media rich, interactive, and extensible applications using Phonegap. PhoneGap being Open and fully extensible makes it easy to integrate data, content, and services from a variety of sources into mobile applications to leverage best-of-breed capabilities. Using PhoneGap our team can deploy application on multiple platforms like Apple iOS, Google Android, Microsoft Windows Mobile, Nokia Symbian OS, RIM BlackBerry, and Samsung Bada which are all supported by PhoneGap

Advantages of Phonegap Development:

  1. An open, standards-based approach to cross-platform application development that can work for all mobile platforms like android, iOS, Windows
  2. Cost-effective development by accessing existing in-house knowledge and skills
  3. Compatibility with JavaScript toolkits such as Jquery Mobile, Sencha Touch and Dojox Mobile
  4. Access to native device features using a uniform JavaScript bridge.
  5. An extensible architecture that simplifies integration with native device code.
  6. Provides way to access device hardware and Services.
  7. Development skills required only in technologies JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3 rather than knowing all the languages needed to develop mobile applications for smart-phones.
  8. Existing mobile/web developers can be a part of PhoneGap and target the increased user base.
  9. Using PhoneGap can help you distribute and integrate payment through the App store.
