Through plugins our application can access tools such as Bluetooth connectivity, text-to-speech conversion and barcode scanning, among others. The result will be a hybrid application, but one that runs entirely from the device's operating system. It is a native and web component, but the latter is not used through a browse but a Web View. PhoneGap allows us to create applications for a wide range of operating systems: from Android, iOS and Windows Phone to less popular ones.
A first observation is essential: the development of websites (from the point of UX design or associated technologies) and that of mobile applications is radically different. In other words, what works wonderfully for the first cannot be duplicated for the second contrary to what many customers imagine at first glance.
Due to ignorance or lack of advice, some customers ask their service provider to develop a first app in “native” language for iOS or Android, then to continue working with other operating systems existing on the market. It is clearly a waste of time and money. While this approach is justified for applications of great technical complexity, it turns out to be unnecessary in the majority of cases.
Rather, the solution lies in a cross-platform approach. PhoneGap presents very convincing qualities from this point of view. It makes it possible to obtain a first prototype, at a lower price than that of an application designed in native language, thanks to a reduced development time.
The Advantages Of Phonegap Are Numerous:
The framework, developed by Adobe, is suitable for low-complexity projects requiring little development time and a small budget envelope. On the other hand, it logically finds its limits for the development of applications whose ambition is to use all the functionalities of mobiles or tablets or which require a design and cutting-edge technology such as 3D games.

If you have ever tried to access a store's website from your smartphone, you immediately noticed how inconvenient it is to use it—tiny print, pages that do not fit the screen. You have to zoom in and move the page, getting lost with the necessary details now and then. The mobile application is fully adapted to the smartphone screen size - this is the main advantage of the application for the client. Moreover, only a mobile device allows some application functions (for example, push notifications, calls, geolocation) to work.
More than 50% of Internet users use it via mobile devices. And if a person installs your application on his smartphone, he is interested in buying your goods. That is, having a mobile application, you work only with the target audience.
The application has constant access to the client. Personalized push notifications can be used to keep in touch with a potential customer. The main thing is the right quantity of messages you push. Notifications must be essential and useful.
Many mobile applications provide a variety of analytic functions. So you can see data on the number of buyers and the number of purchases, costs and profits, data on purchased goods, and their price. This saves managers from additional processing of all this data on their own. Ready-made numbers are always at hand in the application.
Applications allow you to establish personal contact with the client. These can be notifications about nearby offices or branches, about ongoing promotions and discounts, feedback channels, and even user groups' creation to communicate with each other. A mobile app is an indispensable solution for fast, repetitive, and location-based actions.
Modern versions of applications can work even without Internet access. This is especially important where communication is poorly picked up, and Internet access is unstable or completely absent. If a person urgently needs to make an online purchase somewhere out of town, and the site does not load pictures or does not load at all, then the mobile application will save the situation. After the last online access, data on goods and prices, and their photos were saved.
