Development with PhoneGap is also “Friendly” and “Futuristic”
Friendly, because it supports 8 different mobile platforms, comprising iOS, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, webOS, Symbian, Samsung Bada and Tizen. And it can also easily communicate with backend services written in any language (PHP / ASP / JSF / Java / .NET, etc.) using network protocols (XmlHTTPRequest, WebSockets, etc.)
It’s Futuristic, because it is an open source meaning there will be constant evolutions and additions of new modules that are continually being developed.
