These folks are web developers who build mobile apps for their customers so they wrote phonegap to aid their own development on the iPhone, Android, etc.  They offer it free as open source under the MIT license.

Hi Steve et al,

Steve,

I'm curious about your thoughts on the various Javascript/CSS/HTML platforms for developing iphone applications.  In particular, see Titanium Mobile here:

http://www.appcelerator.com/products/titanium-mobile/

Seems to me that it would be nice to be able to develop an application for both iPhone and Droid with essentially the same code.  However, what about issues like memory management?  How would the web technology-based platform allow you to manage memory?  I would imagine there are other limitations to the approach since you are not working with the native language of the application.

I've posed the question to Titanium but would appreciate your insight since you have delved into the guts of iphone applications.

Thanks
