Scala is soon becoming the preferred language of choice for
Android development. For mobile applications, Scala enjoys
advantages over other JVM languages, such as JRuby or Groovy,
because statically typed languages run faster, consume less
memory, and generally are better optimized.
Knoldus has delivered mobile products which interface with
the Scala back-end services using PhoneGap. PhoneGap is an open
source development framework for building mobile applications
across multiple devices.
There are different kinds of mobile in the market that use
different platforms or operating system (OS) such as iOS,
Android, Blackberry, Windows etc. Developers prefers to develop
the applications in one common language that would be supported
by all the popular platform. This is called as the cross platform
PhoneGap is one of the most widely used cross-platform
technology for creating apps that operate for multiple devices,
such as the iPhone, Android etc. PhoneGap is the ONLY open source
mobile framework that supports all the major seven platforms. It
HTML5. It also allows for access to hardware features including
GPS/location data, accelerometer, camera, sound and more.
Following are the benefits of PhoneGap development :
Take advantage of HTML5
Use Java script to
write the code.
Access Native features
Deploy the apps to multiple platforms.
We can work with you to identify your mobile and tablet
strategy. Based on the need we would propose either a PhoneGap
based solution or running Scala on Android. In a couple of our
products the UI was designed to give a similar look and feel on a
browser as a native application which avoided the mobile
development all together. In a nutshell, we would help you make
the best decision.
