If you are a business owner then you should consider using the PhoneGap framework and technology for your mobile application development projects. The big problem with mobile application development is platforms. There are multiple platforms that you must develop your mobile application for and they are ever changing. The iPhone market share is dwindling and Android and Windows 8 are growing. Even couple of years back iPhone was the choice of first platform to roll in your mobile application. Not so, in past years. What do you do? Develop 3 native apps plus a Desktop version for your business application? That would be too costly. Usually, if you wanted to have an application for more than one of the dominant mobile platforms, you would need to build a separate application for each one. This is because each of the major mobile platform has its own coding language. Sometimes designs and user interfaces can be reused, but code cannot be so. PhoneGap can save a lot of time and money, because you are essentially building the app once then making some adjustments to get it work smoothly on the various platforms. PhoneGap makes the process more efficient by applying the motif of building once and deploying everywhere. PhoeGap allows you to develop and publish your application across multiple mobile platforms rapidly and without a lot of extra efforts. Efforts which could have gone into developing the same application for Apple/iOS, Android, Blackberry, WebOS, Windows, Symbian and Bada. PhoneGap saves you time and money from that.
Why choose PhoneGap for Enterprise Mobile App development?
Cross Platform Compatibility
PhoneGap offers the highest level of cross platform compatibility supporting 8 different mobile app development platforms comprised of iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows, webOS, Symbian, Bada and Tizen. This means your PhoneGap mobile app development team will have to write a single code curtailing the efforts to program for different platforms separately.
Rapid App Development with Reduced Cost
With users getting dispersed across multiple mobile platforms from Android and iOS to Windows Phone and BlackBerry and so on, it becomes essentials for an enterprise to invest in multiple mobile app development services. So this will only add to the existing mobility budget. Thankfully, cross-platform app development frameworks like Cordova and PhoneGap provides a good remedy. The code developed for one platform can be used for other platforms as well. If you own an in-house team of developers it would help you to rapidly build the mobile apps compatible with different platforms.
However, configuring the app build for the native platform requires a lot of skills. The native experience of Android, iOS or any other platform users shouldn’t be sacrificed. Spare few minutes to understand how this PhoneGap-based shopping app performs across Android and iOS.
Look and feel of business apps on different platforms matter especially for building and enhancing brand reputation online. Before the advent of PhoneGap, the business owners got the non-uniform appearance of their apps on different OS. It looked unprofessional and damaged the user experience. But, with PhoneGap platform, nonuniformity is gone and the application can be deployed across all major platforms with the same performance and appearance.
Apps can be deployed faster
With PhoneGap you can deploy your app faster as with this platform your developer is only required to work on the code once and then deploy the app on several platforms at the same time. This is indeed a time-saver and you don’t need to develop separate apps for every platform you desire to deploy on.
