Subject Re: CordovaView?? - A proof of concept of making a custom Android View with Cordova Web APIs exposed
Date Sun, 11 Dec 2011 06:40:12 GMT

the code into the view controller and out of the application.
This will allow the use of a phonegap view in any application, not
just a PhoneGapApplication subclass.
I am not as far along as you Joe.
For an older version of this on iOS please see :
