Is creating mobile apps a trend nowadays? We think: Definitely yes! In our article we’ve chosen 4 solutions for creating mobile apps to look at more closely. So, let’s start.
The fact is that previously PhoneGap was called Apache Callback, but now Apache Cordova. PhoneGap was an open source project started by a company called Nitobi. As part of Nitobi’s purchase by Adobe, because the PhoneGap project had many contributors from large companies like IBM etc, the project was contributed to the Apache Software Foundation.
At first the name was changed to “Callback”, but then was renamed to “Cordova” (after the street the Nitobi offices were on at some point). This is because unlike the project itself, the name PhoneGap is part of Adobe’s purchase of Nitobi. So the opinions differ.
Titanium Studio– is one more product of Appcelerator, Inc. Titanium Studio is an extensible, Eclipse-based IDE for building Titanium Mobile applications and web applications.
Appcelerator, Inc. also offers cloud-based services for packaging, testing and distributing software applications developed on the Titanium platform.
Hope it was useful to learn about these solutions. And do you use these tools for building apps? What would you think best? I’m eager to see your comments! 🙂
I have used Cordova with eclips IDE for developing a hybrid application. My experience of developing with phonegap was great and I had success in achieving the hybrid objectives from my project. Phonegap is for sure a best pick for hybrid development. The only thing it lacks is the support for native plugins which i would love to see in its upcoming versions.
I’m not sure where PhoneGap is headed now that Adobe is monetizing it though their online builder tool, which was officially launched today.
Hopefully they do not take the good stuff and locked is down with licensing.
I think PhoneGap, Apache Cordova, Sencha Touch, Appcelerator Titanium all need coding and only professional programmer can use them. I am using infinitemonkeys.mobi for creating apps without coding.
Just wish to say your article is as surprising. The clarity in your post is just spectacular and i could assume you’re an expert on this subject. Well with your permission let me to grab your feed to keep updated with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please keep up the gratifying work.
I wonder if the phonegap and cordova communities are too splintered since adobe bought phonegap. Hopefully cordova still goes strong, guess I’ll just have to get my hands dirty with them and seem myself haha. Thanks for the overview, it was really helpful!
That may seem odd, but in fact, it is a very
effective mode for people with some degrees of visual impairment,
since when you focus on white letters, you are focussing on light
itself. There are e – Book companies that will format your manuscript files into e – Book files and can
even provide a cover image. Even so, the registry may be corrupted, destroyed,
clogged up, or infected causing Windows to be unable to read the files effectively.
