Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-809) New Components for Windows and Mac
Date Fri, 18 May 2012 00:45:02 GMT
Roy Corneloues created CB-809:

             Summary: New Components for Windows and Mac
                 Key: CB-809
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: New Feature
         Environment: PhoneGap components for more traditional OS's including MAC and PC
            Reporter: Roy Corneloues

Virtually all laptops and net books now ship with similar capabilities to smart phones and
tablets including cameras, Bluetooth, etc.

Metro sees the start of the app that will work on the desktop as well as the mobile device.
Even the Mac app store is delivering apps to the desktop in the same way as they are delivered
to the device.

For existing PhoneGap app developers who do not want to migrate to Metro then a desktop component
is essential.

For enterprise apps (where I am interested) a PhoneGap for Windows will provide a solution
before, through and beyond any Windows 8 roll out which could take anything up to 3 years.

A consistent framework across all platforms will be essential as the "gap" (pun intended)
between smartphone, tablet and PC diminishes.
