Cross-Platform Mobile Application Development
Developing mobile applications that can work on multiple mobile platforms such as iPhones and Androids can be very complicated and costly. The reason for this is that each platform as their own set of tools and standards for how the applications must be written. In order to write applications in their native language a developer must maintain completely separate projects and develop using multiple tool sets. At Slate we utilize a technology platform called PhoneGap that simplifies the process of developing applications that run on all the major mobile platforms.
PhoneGap uses standards-based web technologies to bridge web applications and mobile devices. We write applications using standard web-based technologies and PhoneGap transforms them into applications that run natively on all the major mobile device platforms. This not only simplifies that development process it also speeds up development and significantly lowers the development costs.
