The PhoneGap framework acts as a bridge between web applications and mobile devices. It lets developers wrap web applications inside a native application, making development easier for those who aren’t familiar with Objective-C and Cocoa framework.
PhoneGap is currently supports development for the iPhone, Palm WebOS, Google Android, Symbian OS and BlackBerry operating systems and providing some unique features like the camera, GPS, the accelerometer, local SQLite databases and more, without having to write full applications.
