You've only seen a small portion of the features that PhoneGap has to offer for your cross-platform development needs. I recommend you take a quick look at the the PhoneGap API reference to find out about the huge list of APIs you can leverage in your apps.

I should mention that although PhoneGap makes it nice and easy to create cross-platform apps, if you're looking for a nice and polished experience, nothing matches what you can do with native APIs. Some people even say that you can create a native iOS app and native Android app in less time than making a polished cross-platform app with something like PhoneGap.

On the other hand, there's a ton of apps that have been successfully made with PhoneGap already - check out the full list to see for yourself. It kinda depends on what you're going for.

Either way, I hope this tutorial showed you a little bit about PhoneGap and how it works, so you can make the decision that is best for your app. If you have any questions or comments, please join the forum discussion below!
