PhoneGap and the Apache Software Foundation (ASF)

We're excited to tell you that the PhoneGap code was contributed to the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) last month! It is currently under incubation under the name Apache Callback until it can become a full Apache project.

Through the ASF, future PhoneGap development will ensure open stewardship of the project and it will always remain free and open source under the Apache License, Version 2.0.

Featured App: Advertising Agency

Let's admit it, we all spend some time daydreaming in meetings. J. Blake Harris turned that dream into a fun PhoneGap app. Advertising Agency is one part game, one part comic strip and one part autobiography, based on his experience in the advertising industry.

Find out why Harris chose PhoneGap and how it helped him create his app.
