cordova_iconCordova is certainly one of the most promising and state of the art framework to develop cross-platform HTML5-based mobile apps. I’m a big fan of this framework, but unfortunately some stuff are in my opinion hard to understand for beginners when it comes to customize or extend an HTML5-based app implement their own special function calls. Special functions?  Just think: what if your App should launch a videoplayer  when the user clicks somewhere in your app? Or what about integrating a customized alert box (aka Toast) or overlaying a Open GL View for a 3D visualization? Those are things you won’t be able to realize without using a Cordova plugin. More >
