webOS added to open-source PhoneGap development suite

PhoneGap If you haven’t heard of it before, PhoneGap is an open-source development tool that uses web tools to build applications for a variety of platforms. The suite supports app building for iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android operating systems, and recently added Palm’s webOS to the fold. PhoneGap integrates well with webOS APIs, including geolocation, accelerometer, notification, and telephony, amongst others. Outside of learning some PhoneGap specific tools, most of the development with PhoneGap is HTML and JavaScript (sounds familiar, eh?). PhoneGap works by taking the HTML and JavaScript code and porting it over to Objective C for iPhone or Java for BlackBerry and Android, and now does the same for webOS. Anything that makes development for webOS even easier is an OK thing in our book.
