It extends the features of HTML and JavaScript to work with the device. The resulting applications are hybrid, meaning that they are neither truly native mobile application (because all layout rendering is done via Web views instead of the platform's native UI framework) nor purely Web-based (because they are not just Web apps, but are packaged as apps for distribution and have access to native device APIs). Mixing native and hybrid code snippets has been possible since version 1.9.The software was previously called just "PhoneGap", then "Apache Callback".WEB,weblink Apache Callback - Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware :: Development, Tiki, Community, Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware :: Development, 3 April 2018, WEB,weblink Apache Callback Proposal,, 2013-08-15, 2013-10-09,

Design and rationale

The core of Apache Cordova applications use CSS3 and HTML5 for their rendering and JavaScript for their logic. HTML5 provides access to underlying hardware such as the accelerometer, camera, and GPS. However, browsers' support for HTML5-based device access is not consistent across mobile browsers, particularly older versions of Android. To overcome these limitations, Apache Cordova embeds the HTML5 code inside a native WebView on the device, using a foreign function interface to access the native resources of it.WEB,weblink The Development of Mobile Applications using HTML5 and PhoneGap on Intel Architecture-Based Platforms, 2012-06-22, However, HTML5 has some limitations. Most prominent, is the lack of API to access device hardware and sensors such as accelerometer, compass, GPS, etc. While native applications can access device hardware, they lack the portability that Web apps provide. Thus, a solution is to code a hybrid application, which cumulatively uses the benefits of native and Web apps., 2013-02-17, Apache Cordova can be extended with native plug-ins, allowing developers to add more functionalities that can be called from JavaScript, making it communicate directly between the native layer and the HTML5 page. These plugins allow access to the device's accelerometer, camera, compass, file system, microphone, and more.However, the use of Web-based technologies leads some Apache Cordova applications to run slower than native applications with similar functionality.WEB,weblink Titanium vs Phonegap vs Native application development, Sapan Diwakar, 2012-06-21Adobe Systems warns that applications built with Apache Cordova may be rejected by Apple Inc.>Apple for being too slow or not feeling "native" enough (having appearance and functionality consistent with what users have come to expect on the platform).WEB,weblink PhoneGap advice on dealing with Apple application rejections, Adobe Systems, 2012-10-29, 2013-02-17, WEB,weblink Creating apps with PhoneGap: Lessons learned, Adobe Systems, 2012-09-17, When you add more complex CSS3 elements, heavy transitions, and supporting multiple devices (such as iOS and Android), however, it makes you realize that there are few steps you must iron out to prevent hair loss, 2013-02-17,
