Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-809) New Components for Windows and Mac
Date Mon, 10 Sep 2012 19:32:09 GMT


Randy Starr commented on CB-809:

We are using Cordova for a Line of Business app targeting iOS and Android.  We see Windows/Phone
8 as an important target platform as well.  We would prefer to use Cordova for Windows/Phone
8 over XAML+WinRT or MSFT HTML5+JS+WinRT, if possible, for code manageability and supportability.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Mac
>         Environment: PhoneGap components for more traditional OS's including MAC and
>            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.
