From the standpoint of developers and business owners this is crucial. For business owners, it means the least amount spent on app development and for developers it means least efforts.

It provides access to an array of smartphone’s hardware features such as an accelerometer, geo-location, media library, network, notification, camera, storage etc. These are the properties of native apps and PhoneGap has borrowed them as well, making the life of business owners comfortable for they don’t have to compromise on User Experience (UX) at all.
Conformity Across Platforms
Before the idea of cross-platform application development came into existence, apps appeared differently on different platforms. For instance, an app developed for an iOS platform not only looked different but even functioned differently than an app developed for the Android platform. PhoneGap eliminates this issue by endowing the app with a uniform look and feel across all platforms.
PhoneGap comes with a high-end backend system that supports high-speed development. This is indeed a good news for the developers because it reduces development efforts significantly. Plus, it comes with a beginners guide as well, which helps speeds up the development process further.
Open source Nature
The PhoneGap is open source in nature. In other words, it has a growing community of developers who keep adding value to technology via enhancements, tutorials and other contributed plugins that add to the core functionality of PhoneG.
