Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Phone Gap

We have been developing applications for our customers in Phone Gap. We have used Phone Gap to build business applications. Phone Gap is one of the tools among many in our organization. Phone Gap is preferred if the customer demands application that needs to be developed fast and is a business application.
  • Business Application like payment collection, application for salesperson etc.
  • Used for developing the mobile application that needs to be developed faster with the same User Experience on both iOS and Android.
  • Not a good fit if you need to develop engineering or gaming applications
  • Performance is not great on mobile devices in some cases and it simply renders HTML inside a browser container
  • Though it says the same UI will work on both iOS and Android it is not the case always. Some tweaking is required which delays the project.
  • Time to market is improved with the introduction of Phone Gap.
  • Less dependency on Native programmers to develop mobile applications.
  • Programmers with HTML, Javascript & CSS skills can directly contribute to mobile application development.
Business applications with less demanding user experience it is the best fit. For applications that require interactions with hardware or involves 3d rendering, it is not the best fit. It is very much possible to build plugins but that will demand native programmers.
