Review of PhoneGap APIs Accessing the Native Mobile Platform APIs

Niyigena Jean Pierre and Mukiza Octavien
Abstract—PhoneGap with its JavaScript based APIs has proved that it is very advantageous for developers and this owing to the fact that developers can build mobile native-like applications (known as hybrid applications) with JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS3, web world standard technologies that most web developers typically know. In this paper, we discuss most of PhoneGap APIs and try to show how easy it is from the JavaScript world to access and control the native world of mobile platform with PhoneGap APIs through PhoneGap bridge. The ease of making use of only a couple lines of JavaScript code to access and manage mobile device native APIs with PhoneGap APIs makes obvious that PhoneGap is among the unexcelled mobile applications development frameworks.

Index Terms—Cross-platform, framework, JavaScript, mobile, PhoneGap APIs.
