If you’re developing a mobile app that you don’t want to limit to a single platform, and you want to write a native app instead of a web app, it means that you would need to develop completely distinct apps with the platform’s specific language and SDK.

On the other side, if you decide to write a web app, you might write it once but you would lose the opportunity to publish on a popular app store, and miss the chance of using cool features such as the device’s GPS or accelerometer because you can’t access them.

PhoneGap takes the best of both worlds: it is an open source development framework for building native (published on the iTunes App Store or the Google Android Market), cross-platform apps with HTML (for designing the UI) and JavaScript (for handling the interaction and the flow), and still take advantage of core features in iPhone/iTouch, iPad, Google Android, Palm, Symbian and Blackberry SDKs, such as: geo location, vibration, accelerometer and sound.
