The Apache Cordova 3.6 release has been inspired by the idea of Building universal Windows apps. It introduces a new unified ‘windows’ platform to build apps targeting Windows 8.0, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1. Note, Windows Phone 8.0 still remains as a separate ‘wp8’ platform due to different implementation.
“Modern browsers offer outstanding performance and web standards support so we see a growing tendency to build cross-platform apps with HTML5. This approach has both positives and negatives when compared to native app development that can, and should, influence decisions when making a choice for development. The most appealing benefit of this approach is the ability to build and manage one app instead of several different versions of the same app, deploy it across multiple platforms for maximum market exposure and to reduce development cost and time. With the Apache Cordova framework, Akvelon is able to leverage our existing HTML5 skills to deliver a high quality app experiences that many companies including Microsoft, Intel, IBM, RIM, Google, Salesforce, Dropbox and Telerik actively support and use.” – stated Toby Rawlinson, Akvelon’s Partnership Manager.
