Android Mobile App Development with Phonegap & Eclipse

The importance of mobile apps and the mobile web is clearly indicated by the pervasive nature of mobiles and smartphones in today’s world. When developing websites or apps for mobiles, there are two main approaches:

  1. Mobile Web Applications - effectively a website, or web application, optimised for use on mobiles
  2. Native Mobile Apps - apps that are downloaded onto your mobile device and use the native features of the phone

There is in fact a third approach which is a hybrid development style of the above two options. Mobile app platforms / frameworks such as PhoneGap, jQTouch and Sencha Touch allow you to author “native” applications with web technologies (HTML5, Javascript). There are pros and cons to this approach and some further reading is available below on this topic…

Until next time!
