2012 Jolt Awards: Mobile Tools, October 30, 2012 The best mobile development tools
Jolt Award: Adobe Phone Gap
Acquired by Adobe last year and subsequently open sourced under the name Apache Cordova, PhoneGap enables Web developers to write their Web apps once and then deploy them as native apps on seven (!) platforms: iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone, Palm WebOS, Bada, and Symbian.
Developers who wish to have full control over the conversion process can download and use the Cordova framework with each supported OS SDK and development environment. Alternatively, they can upload their project to the new PhoneGap Build service and have it converted to multiple native apps automatically.
