PhoneGap is an HTML5 app platform which allows you to develop an application in HTML5 and run it as an native app on your mobile device. PhoneGap does this by running the application in a web browser control in the background. So when the user starts navigating trough your application, PhoneGap will intercept this and navigate to the files which are stored locally on the phone. This way there is no need to have an connection to the internet to run the application. But PhoneGap offers more then only building an HTML5 app. Because most of the HTML5 specifications aren’t implemented in mobile browsers yet, PhoneGap provides an framework, which allows you to access features of the mobile device. For example the camera, file system, contacts.
