Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-11) come up with a new project name
Date Fri, 28 Oct 2011 15:19:32 GMT


Martin Hicks commented on CB-11:

When I attempt to explain PhoneGap to others I tend to focus on its ability to facilitate
cross-platform mobile apps from one code-base. So, how about Keystone?

Keystone: 'something that is necessary to connect or support a number of other related things'

On the matter of the name Callback - I completely agree with Patrick that this is a poor choice
of name as it's a common term already within the community this product is aimed at.

> During the transition of the PhoneGap project to Apache, the project was renamed to "Callback",
due to some concerns with the name "PhoneGap".  It seems that "Callback" isn't a great name
either - it's a commonly used term, and so internet searches of "Callback" bring up too many
non-relevant hits.
