Cross-Platform Mobile Geolocation Applications Based on PhoneGap

Niyigena Jean Pierre, Fan Xiumei, Gakwaya Daniel, and Gombaniro Jean Claude
Abstract—Building mobile applications have been a big challenge. This issue is mainly caused by different programming languages that one has to master when developing mobile applications. To address the latter mentioned bottleneck, PhoneGap, a cross-platform framework that only requires knowing JavaScript, HTML/HTML5 and CSS/CSS3, among many others, was invented. This paper describes the use of PhoneGap geolocation API to determine the location for most of today’s on market mobile smart phone platforms. The ease of using only a few lines of JavaScript code to access and manage the mobile device native geolocation API, in most mobile smart phone platforms, makes obvious that mobile geolocation with PhoneGap geolocation API is among the best for mobile cross-platform geolocation applications.

Index Terms—Cross-platform mobile geolocation, geolocation application, PhoneGap geolocation API, smart phones geolocation.
