Apache Cordova

Apache Cordova is an open-source application framework that makes it easier to build cross-platform mobile apps using web technologies. Formerly known as PhoneGap, Cordova allows developers to write an app's code once and then deploy the app on multiple platforms such as Android, iOS, Windows Phone and webOS with a single code base. The framework provides access to native device functions through JavaScript APIs, allowing for integration of features like the camera, accelerometer, geolocation and file system. By abstracting away platform-specific details in a unified API set, Apache Cordova simplifies the development process while still enabling apps to take full advantage of the individual capabilities of each target device.
