There are a lot of hybrid mobile application frameworks out there but PhoneGap shines the brightest among all of them. In this post I will discuss some of the pros and cons of choosing PhoneGap.
- PhoneGap is open source
- Apps for Android, iOS and Windows can be created from the came code.
- PhoneGap does not provide any UI elements, for that you will need to use a framework like ionic which is custom made for it. You can also use jQuery mobile but performance of ionic is far better that jQuery mobile.
- You cannot create widgets using PhoneGap
- To use native device features such as camera,storage,etc you have to rely on Plugins. This is not a big issue but is a device has a feature for which plugin has not be created then you won’t be able to use that feature, which is a rare scenario.
