Beginning Mobile Application Development in the Cloud
Apache Cordova formerly PhoneGap is a mobile application development framework originally created by Nitobi. Adobe Systems purchased Nitobi in , rebranded it as PhoneGap, and later released an open source version of the software called Apache Cordova. The resulting applications are hybrid, meaning that they are neither truly native mobile application because all layout rendering is done via Web views instead of the platform's native UI framework nor purely Web-based because they are not just Web apps, but are packaged as apps for distribution and have access to native device APIs. Mixing native and hybrid code snippets has been possible since version 1. The software was previously called just "PhoneGap", then "Apache Callback".
There are two options for sharing code between cross-platform mobile applications: Shared Asset Projects and Portable Class Libraries. These options are discussed here ; more information on Portable Class Libraries and Shared Projects is also available. Part 1 — Understanding the Xamarin Mobile Platform. Part 4 — Dealing with Multiple Platforms. Part 5 — Practical Code Sharing Strategies. Part 6 - Testing and App Store Approvals. The principles outlined in this document are put into practice in the sample application Tasky , as well as pre-built applications like Xamarin CRM.

With mobile computing devices becoming prevalent, applications for them greatly increased in importance. These apps make devices more versatile. Unfortunately, developing them at the moment means that each plattform has to be addressed separately. To investigate novel methods of multi-platform app development and to review HTML5, we built an app using several up-to-date development frameworks. Our scenario is a smart meter tool, which is an active area of research in itself.
