PhoneGap is perhaps the original alternative application framework for Android, arriving on the scene in early 2009. PhoneGap ( is open source, backed by Nitobi, which traditionally offered a mix of open source and commercial products, along with consulting and training services. As of October 2011, Nitobi had agreed to be acquired by Adobe. To ensure the longevity of the PhoneGap code, Nitobi submitted the PhoneGap code base to the Apache Software Foundation, where the project is now named Apache Callback. Most people still know the project by its original name, and much of the documentation still refers to PhoneGap, so we’ll stick to the traditional name.
