I am sure you always feel good when working on Phone Gap app development for your application as it is an open-source platform for every app developers. Developers can easily get new updates and modules for Phone gap which is compiled by Phone Gap community just only because of its open source license. I think here work can be easier for the new developers to get good guidance. 

– Best and simplest way to work with plugins

Here the framework called Phone Gap app development build supports the Phone Gap and Cordova Plugins and that enable for you all to extend native functionality while developing mobile apps. If you are looking to get the plugins then you can get it from Adobe repository, public git repository and also you can get it from npm. I can also reveal some names of plugins in the repository and that are StatusBar, Barcode scanner, GAPlugins, Facebook Connect and Pushwoosh. 

Disadvantages of Phone Gap App Development 

– Not a good option for intensive applications 

Can’t judge any platform just by understanding its pros so let me share the first negative point for using this platform. If you are interested to launch your gaming app with this Phone Gap framework then just say no to it. It may fail to deliver the gaming app as you can face many such issues like freeze and drop. Many of the developers avoid this platform for gaming app just only because of this issue.  So if you are a newcomer in this business then remember this point.

– It is difficult to work for IOS app

Unfortunately, that is correct. You are looking to build an iOS application for your work so you can’t develop the program without downloading iOS SDKs. Even one more thing, you can’t develop any iOS app without Mac. This is the major limitation for iOS app developer and a negative point

– Sometimes it shows slow performance

It’s an obvious that you are looking to develop an application; you always introduce some of the graphic elements for your app on the platform. No doubt you can apply many graphic elements in the platform, but it can create a serious problem. After adding too many elements in Phone Gap framework it starts working slowly.

Final thought

Above I mentioned its positive and negative points. There is no doubt that Phone Gap is easy and less expensive but in this tough competition Phone Gap is slow to work. Many more features are not supportive in this framework. It simply means that if you want to develop an app with extra ordinary features then it will not support.

Now it’s up to you and your requirement, you have to either choose Phone Gap or go with any other framework. Just evaluate the advantages and disadvantages according to your needs.
