From the team behind Apache Cordova (https://cordova.apache.org/), the Adobe PhoneGap (http://phonegap.com/) framework is an open source distribution of Cordova — providing the advantage of technology created by a diverse team of pros along with a robust developer community — plus access to the PhoneGap toolset, so you can get to mobile faster.
