Phonegap build

The jQuery mobile site we have created works in any web browsers, including the destop and mobile ones. It also works for the “web views” components inside the native app environment. So we can wrap our HTML code into a native app for display and interaction.

To do that, we can use PhoneGap Build service. In the service, we upload the package of HTML,CSS and JavaScript and the web service builds the native executable for us.

This article from me explains how PhoneGap works.
