Adobe's PhoneGap 2.0 makes building cross-platform apps easier

Adobe has announced the release of PhoneGap 2.0, a major new version of the open source mobile application development framework. The update brings a number of new features and improvements to the PhoneGap development experience. The update also introduces support for Microsoft’s Windows Phone mobile platform.


PhoneGap allows developers to build cross-platform mobile applications with standards-based HTML and JavaScript. It supports packaging and deployment across a range of mobile operating systems and provides a standardized set of JavaScript APIs for accessing underlying platform functionality.


Nitobi, the company behind PhoneGap, was acquired by Adobe last year. Adobe donated the underlying PhoneGap code to the Apache Software Foundation so that it could be developed in an inclusive environment with open governance. The project is currently being developed through the Apache Incubator program under the name Apache Cordova.
