Learn to Build a Cross-Platform App using Phonegap

Why should I go for cross platform application development ?

Did you ever wonder “Wish I could create a mobile app for my business or my customers!”. Well, then do you know basic HTML and JavaScript (like tags, few styles, functions, etc.)? If the answer is yes, then this course is made for you.

PhoneGap solves the problem of learning different frameworks and languages, 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. In other words, a month on native app development is converted to just 4 days to write the same amount of app functionality in PhoneGap, version 2.9.1.

Why should you learn about Phonegap?

PhoneGap has been downloaded over 1 million times and is being used by over 400,000 developers. Thousands of apps built using PhoneGap are available in mobile app stores and directories. Today, your favourite apps like BBC, IGN games, Rormix, Browser Quest, MathIQ are using PhoneGap. If you are not creating an app for industrial grade real-time calculations, PhoneGap is made for you.

Need for Cross-Platform Mobile App Development

Screens are big, apps are big, and life as we know it is on its head again. In a world that’s increasingly social and open, mobile apps play a vital role, and have changed the focus from what’s on the Web, to the apps on our mobile device. Mobile apps are no longer an option, they’re an imperative. As the world is turning digital more and more manufacturers want a piece of this pie. You see a variety of hundreds of devices being launched by many manufacturers on various platforms. Just taking the different types of operating systems into account you have Android, iOS, Blackberry OS Symbian, Windows Phone in terms of market presence. Then you have a lot of new operating systems pooping up and getting a lot of feedback from the developer’s community like Firefox OS, Sailfish OS, Tizen, Ubuntu Touch, Bada OS, Web OS, MeeGo.

For a new developer it is hard to understand one platform leave alone so many, but the primary aim being that his application should be out there on as many devices as possible.

Each development scenario has its pros and cons, and those might in be inline, or at odds, with your means. Unlike Goldilocks, there are no bears to contend with.
