Adding PhoneGap to our Arsenal

Last week at MAX, Adobe announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Nitobi, the creator of PhoneGap. PhoneGap facilitates the development of cross-platform mobile applications using HTML: It allows you to package your HTML as an app for different platforms (iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Symbian, etc). PhoneGap also provides JavaScript APIs to access the native capabilities of your mobile device: Accelerometer, GPS, Database, Camera, Contacts, Notification, etc.

There is a spectrum of things that people build for mobile devices: from content-driven applications to highly interactive applications, and everything in between. There is often a gray area between what can be achieved in HTML and what requires a native experience. With the addition of PhoneGap to our arsenal, we will be able to help developers and designers cover (and integrate) a broader range of use cases. Greg has a great post about this here.
