Adobe Systems Inc., recently launched the new tool to streamline and speed up app previewing and testing with the open source PhoneGap cross-platform development software. Now the developers can install a PhoneGao Developer App and see their coding changes reflected instantly on a paired device.
 
"The PhoneGap Developer app aims to lower the barrier of entry to creating PhoneGap applications," said Michael Brooks in a blog post announcing the new tool. "You can now immediately preview your app on a device without installing platform SDKs, registering devices or even compiling code." 
 
PhoneGap is a mobile development framework used to build apps with JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS3 to target different platforms such as iOS (Apple), Android (Google) and Windows Phone (Microsoft), among several others. Developers create apps with a single codebase using the Web standards and these apps are wrapped in a WebView container and compiled for one of the native platforms. Without having to program in native code, developers can create hybrid apps that can access native device resources such as sensors, data and network status through standard API calls.
