PhoneGap, the only open source mobile framework

December 2, 2011

PhoneGap is an HTML5 app platform that allows you to author native applications with web technologies and get access to APIs and app stores. PhoneGap leverages web technologies developers already know best… HTML and JavaScript.

  • Build your app once with web-standards
  • Based on HTML5, PhoneGap leverages web technologies developers already know best… HTML and JavaScript.
  • Wrap it with PhoneGap
  • Using the free open source framework or PhoneGap build you can get access to native APIs.
  • Deploy to multiple platforms!
  • PhoneGap uses standards-based web technologies to bridge web applications and mobile devices.
Open Source and Free
 
PhoneGap is an open source implementation of open standards. That means developers and companies can use PhoneGap for mobile applications that are free, commercial, open source, or any combination of these.
 
Why PhoneGap?

Mobile development is a mess. Building applications for each device–iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile and more–requires different frameworks and languages. One day, the big players in mobile may decide to work together and unify third-party app development processes. Until then, PhoneGap will use standards-based web technologies to bridge web applications and mobile devices. Plus, because PhoneGap apps are standards compliant, they’re future-proofed to work with browsers as they evolve.

PhoneGap is an open source implementation of open standards. That means developers and companies can use PhoneGap for mobile applications that are free, commercial, open source, or any combination of these.

Since winning the Web 2.0 Expo LaunchPad competition in April 2009, PhoneGap has been widely recognized as a game-changer for mobile app development. The code has been downloaded more than 600,000 times and thousands of apps built using PhoneGap are available in mobile app stores and directories. Check out some of them here.

Who’s behind PhoneGap?

Nitobi was the original creator and is one of the primary contributors to the PhoneGap framework, but there is a vast global community that also contributes to the project, including many from IBM, RIM and Microsoft. We have an engaging and active community that is open, transparent and collaborative.

In October 2011, Adobe acquired Nitobi enabling the team to focus solely on the PhoneGap project and continue its work on efficient expressive design and development across devices. Adobe will continue to host the PhoneGap online community as well as the PhoneGap Build service, which is now in open beta.
