PhoneGap (also called Apache Callback) is an open-source mobile development framework developed by Nitobi Software. It enables software programmers to build applications for mobile devices using JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS3, instead of often less-known languages such as Objective-C. The resulting applications are hybrid, meaning that they are neither truly native (all layout rendering is done via the webview instead of Objective-C or Corona apps) nor purely web based (much of the functions would be supported by HTML5). One disadvantage is that hybrid applications do not have full access to the device application programming interface (API).

Now days, every business is looking to mobilize its operations and widely adopting mobile applications best suited to their business. However, a business can’t control the devices its employees are using or going to use. If the app doesn’t support the device, there will be no mobility and the dollars spent go waste. Therefore, most businesses today are looking to develop custom apps that support multiple mobile platforms. The good news is that with the emergence of innovative new frameworks for cross-platform mobile development, this is now possible. Even better news is that these frameworks allow taking full advantage of the wide range of native features available in various platforms. It means the application you develop will run as a native app in each platform making the most of the built-in features in the device such as camera, GPS and more.

However, creating cross-platform mobile apps requires thorough knowledge of cross-platform mobile development frameworks and years of experience in developing mobile apps using them. Luckily, there are so many professional mobile application development companies having cross-platform development expertise. These companies can save high cost, time and complexity involved in developing, debugging, testing, and deploying custom mobile applications for each mobile OS platform differently for any business. These professional app development companies can develop custom business app with cross-platform support, which means they will write once and deploy it in all different mobile platforms. This will guarantee faster time to market and faster growth for businesses. The project managers and software engineers at these software development companies generally are some of the best in the industry and have a wide range of experience and expertise in cross platform mobile app development frameworks and tools such as Rhodes, Titanium Development Platform, WidgetPad, PhoneGap etc. Most of these professional companies also have expertise in using these frameworks in such a way that the apps developed behave like a native application and offer an optimized performance using the native features of that particular platform. These services also realize the importance of mobility and connectivity to centralized data sources through the application. They link apps with back-end applications using the sync server that comes with the cross-platform mobile framework to guarantee an enhanced business process with unobstructed access to valuable business details any time, any place. Even if a business already has an existing business app developed for a single platform, the professional cross-platform app development companies can make them run in multiple platforms with the help of their porting services. They offer both mobile platform porting and device or OS version porting services.

There are plenty of such professional companies available in every nook and corner of the world offering cross-platform mobile development services. However, a business needs to scrutinize a software development company in many grounds before hiring it for a cross-platform custom app project. A business must check out its portfolio, clients, certifications etc. and make a wise and informed decision. A professional cross-platform application development company can multiply business growth and ROI of any business by expanding its reach and will make more impact in less time.
