PhoneGap Development Services

PhoneGap

As customers increasingly use smartphones to access information and consume services online, businesses have taken to digital models for commerce. This hunch for convenience and passion for technology has led to surge in mobile app development.

To help businesses across the globe take the leap ahead of their competition, Aalpha India has been delivering world class mobile development services using the best of technology platforms.

PhoneGap is one such platform which we specialize in.

What is PhoneGap?

PhoneGap is an emerging open source mobile application development platform best suited for cross-platform compliant mobile applications. Developed by Apache Software Foundation, PhoneGap is also known as Apache Cordova. Applications developed on PhoneGap deliver seamless performance across all mobile operating systems including Android, Blackberry, iPhone, etc.

How does PhoneGap work?

By integrating three powerful languages such as HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript, PhoneGap enables developers to build powerful hybrid mobile applications. Using web technologies, PhoneGap effectively bridges the gap between hybrid and native applications by wrapping them up together to enhance their functionality. The final application is then wrapped within a platform native ‘Web View’ browser object. This renders it as a stand-alone web application with the ability to access some device-specific features.

Widely appreciated as one of the best frameworks for cross platform mobile development, PhoneGap provides access to most popular native features and APIs of the mobile device such as GPS, accelerometer, camera, local SQLite databases etc. All this is provided without having the need to write full applications for ready integration. It puts complicated languages like iOS to death and brings relief from technical mundane programming. Developers can reuse codes and use libraries to start building apps from scratch; focusing on business needs rather than technical issues.

PhoneGap development is independent of mobile OS on which it is written. This implies that developers need not maintain different code bases for each platform. PhoneGap facilitates development of a single mobile app and wrapping it as a native app on other platforms, creating an impression as if it was written in the native app and is inclusive of all the features of the native app. Plain old JavaScript or even other libraries like jQuery, Prototype, Sencha Touch, MooTools, etc . can be used to handle the interaction. PhoneGap allows mobile app development for several platforms at once such as iOS, Android, Windows, etc.

PhoneGap lets developers leverage their existing skills on a common platform rather than with a device-specific compiled language. With PhoneGap developers can build applications in JavaScript, HTML and CSS  which give access to device hardware and other iOS API features like contacts, file system, camera, microphone, GPS, etc.

PhoneGap enabled mobile applications can run on multiple devices using the same code base. Hence, developers need to code only once for particular mobile application and run it on any type of mobile device.
