You may be aware of the increasing need for eCommerce businesses to be accessible on mobile applications like the iPhone, Android, or Windows Smartphone. However, as all application frameworks rely on different sets of code, it can be difficult to know where to direct your resources. PhoneGap is a viable option for eCommerce sites that want to diversify their mobile presence with as little overhead cost as possible.
