PhoneGap/Cordova: A Key to Apps Portability for All Users

As adoption of smart mobile devices becomes more mainstream, app developers face the increasingly crucial task of designing mobile browsers that are accessible, user-friendly and adaptable to any mobile operating system. This is a G3ict White Paper Business Case Series, researched in cooperation with Adobe Systems, Inc | Published by G3ict in February 2015.

Mobile devices require built-in accessibility support similar to what can be found on PCs. This report highlights the features of Adobe PhoneGap, a free and open source framework that allows developers to create mobile apps using standardized web APIs for cross-platform development. The PhoneGap Mobile Accessibility Plugin that this white paper specifically focuses on, works by providing developers access to each mobile device’s built-in accessibility features, allowing them to build apps that can be compiled to run on any given operating system.
