Phone Gap

PhoneGap is a mobile development framework produced by Nitobi, purchased by Adobe Systems.[2][3] It enables software programmers to build applications for mobile devices using JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS3, instead of device-specific languages such as Objective-C.[4] The resulting applications are hybrid, meaning that they are neither truly native (because all layout rendering is done via web views instead of the platform's native UI framework) nor purely web-based (because they are not just web apps, but are packaged as apps for distribution and have access to native device APIs).

The software underlying PhoneGap is Apache Cordova.[5] The software was previously called just "PhoneGap", then "Apache Callback".[6][7] Apache Cordova is open source software.
