SceneScout: Flexibility with PhoneGap by Dan Wilson | 15 Apr 2014 | PhoneGap Blog, Guest Post, App Hybrid applications take many forms.

The original presentation was 30 minutes and I anticipate it taking about the same. I'm not sure what Google Hangouts will do if I go past the end of a meeting so I wanted to ensure we...

I expected to see a set of folks still on 2.9.X as the 3.X change was big, and there does seem to... Visit Raymond's Blog
