PhoneGap is an open source framework for building cross-platform mobile apps using basic web skills like HTML5, Javascript and CSS. It is just all about wraping your app with PhoneGap to fast deploy in diffrent plateforms. I started developing applications since April'12, at the begining I was really impressed since I really used all my web skills to develop apps but after only 6 months I began to be shoked by performance and ui issues like smooth animations and more other issues.
