What is PhoneGap?
Building applications for each device–iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, and more–requires different frameworks and languages. PhoneGap solves this by using standards-based web technologies to bridge web applications and mobile devices. Since PhoneGap apps are standards-compliant, they’re future-proofed to work with browsers as they evolve.
1. You don't need additional training for development
In order to develop an app using Phonegap you don't need to learn any new
programming languages. Phonegap uses standard languages and technologies (HTML, CSS, JS). So that, you could use the team members who are already good at these technologies. This will actually save your long period of training.
2. Allows development for multiple devices
3. Allows you to focus on functionality
4. Improves collaboration
Different members of the team can use their strengths in a collaborative manner to achieve the end result in a faster and seamless manner. The development environment provided by PhoneGap ensures that each developer can make optimal use of it, to come together for the final solution.
5. Easy and fast deployment
The app that you are developing would be deployed to the user much faster, thanks to the time saved on developing using PhoneGap. The mobile app developer could make the best use of existing skills and readily available SDKs to achieve the end result in a reduced amount of time. The PhoneGap Emulator is another handy tool that is useful at the testing and debugging stage.
6. Easy sharing of apps
PhoneGap Build allows you to share the app as soon as it is ready, by sending a link to your friends and family. Recipients could download the app directly onto their mobile devices without even accessing a laptop.
