Native Javascript apps with PhoneGap

Martin de Keijzer


Writing applications for phones has been a daunting task since every platform uses it's own language and API's. PhoneGap will solve this problem for you by utilizing the browser capabilities. In this session we will see how we can turn a web based application into a native app. We will also look at posibilites to integrate native functionality, like the camera or accelerometer, in our application. The final part of the presentation is about deployment of these applications. Adobe offers a cloud based service called PhoneGap Build which easily builds your application for all platforms.
