Hello Robin,

There are a lot of frameworks available for cross Platform HTML5 Mobile app development e.g.Sencha Touch, Titanium, Wink e.t.c.,

1)Assuming that a mobile app developer has knowledge of only one platform say android, How easy will it be for him to adopt one of these Frameworks and develop an app for another platform Iphone

2)Which among these frameworks is easy to get started with assuming that the developer has Java Skills and

3)can you cite any example of such app developed using one of these frameworks which performed well on both the platforms

Any JavaScript framework is likely to be very easily portable between any platforms that use it. Most developers either ensure their frameworks work across all main platforms, or provide platform-specific versions.

I have written my own framework and ensure it works well on all the platforms I use (and update it as necessary). It adapts itself according to screen size and rotation and the device on which it finds itself running (iOS, Android, Windows etc), and is provided free on the companion website of the book and has been successfully used in several apps available in both stores. You can search for "Nixon Publishing" to find them.

I'm gonna teach you a lesson! Start by looking at this tiny ad:
