Mobile developers who would want to combine native application features like WebView or if developers want to create a plugin interface to serve as a bridge between native and WebView components.
Adobe’s Apache Cordova is the preferred cross-platform framework.
Allows for the development of cross platform applications that with a single code base.
Code is iterated faster on the Cordova framework.
Supported with extensive documentation that assists developers to get a sturdy foundation on setting up and using the Cordova framework.
Allows for application development in the cloud.
Cross-platform Command Line Interface (CLI) Workflow : For cross platform application development.
Platform-centered Workflow : For single platform application development.
Either of these workflows may be implemented during mobile application development using Cordova, but each of these workflows have specific advantages.
Cordova’s capabilities include accessing native hardware and software to result in an immersive app experience, without compromising on app functionality.
Applications built using Cordova can be submitted for launch on various platforms and this reduces the need for individual coding for native applications.
Extensive Cordova plugins helps developers to add native features fully utilizing the potential of a mobile device in addition to providing access to the cloud services.
Adobe PhoneGap is an application development platform utilized by Pace Wisdom developers to construct cross platform compatible as well as hybrid mobile applications.
