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.
