You half assed it. That is why your PhoneGap application sucks..
I love articles like this. While there’s a strong level of linkbait and hyperbole it’s great to hear the ‘other’ side of the story.
PhoneGap hit the ground running and got picked up like crazy, and then people started dogging on it for performance reasons. It’s nice to hear the co-creator of PhoneGap speak to why performance can quickly become an issue if you don’t take the time to account for the environment in which you’re working and stop treating PhoneGap like a magic black box that’s going to account for all the potential performance issues you may hit.
