PhoneGap is a free open-source framework you can use to create mobile apps for a variety of platforms, including BlackBerry devices. PhoneGap masks many of the inconsistencies between platforms so that developers can focus on their code.

Using a PhoneGap project, you can maintain a single code base while providing platform-specific resources, and then build the same app for multiple platforms. The underlying Apache Cordova engine provides a set of standard APIs for all the supported platforms. Cordova handles the binding of your JavaScript to the native code as necessary for each of the supported platforms.
