No universal solution is available in cross-platform development or in native development. Some of you know that everything depends on the software project. To know whether PhoneGap should be selected as the platform for the project or not can only decides through these subtleties. One can get PhoneGap’s cross-platform capabilities through many ways like:
- a native browser (webView), embedded in the project;
- API for writing native plugins;
As a result, one can simply build a service-oriented, single-page HTML-5 application using PhoneGap. According to some calculation, about 99% of PhoneGap development is lay-outing and JS-coding with consideration for the environment peculiarities and browsers. At the time of PhoneGap development, one must have to consider the specificity of each platform, it’s a default browser.
When it comes to architecture and optimization, this framework is very demanding. Much time spend on the project as users interface has to be optimized for each platform. Previously, some experts touched upon the issue of PhoneGap and found out four major problems like DOM structure optimization, the 300 millisecond lag, the problem of touching, and long lists while developing a responsive app on PhoneGap. Looking at such problem, we come to know about the negative side of PhoneGap.
To conclude, every framework has positive as well as negative side, it doesn’t mean framework is not good for your development task. One must have to solve such minor problems and develop the best cross platform application.
