After the package applications, the PhoneGap app can be downloaded from App stores and easily installed. With the PhoneGap, one can also access APIs, which are inbuilt and can make easy interaction with the device. APIs are beneficial and provide much functionality; some of the APIs are camera, accelerator, geolocation, audio, navigation, etc. all these functionalities are available to direct through the JavaScript object.

Test and Distribute your Application

To test, the App Native APIs need to run on the device. So, GapDebug allows you to install the .ipa file on your devices and run it to debug the errors. It is vital to test your App before installation as it will run on the browser and mobile, so it must be accurately working.

After testing, this is the last and very important to distribute your App on the App Store to get to know about the App; you need an application loader program that will make your App available so users can download it easily.
