I heard that if we develop android application HTML5 or Titanimu studio we can't build all native features(GPS,Camera,.....).please explain.

1)if we use html5 what are the functions we can't use?
2)if we use Titanium what are the functions we can't use?
Also what are the advantages of these technologis?

It depends on what you mean by "develop with HTML 5". If it's a standard web app (or mobile web app) then yes, you can't use native functionality as you're limited to what HTML 5 offers. That's more and more these days, though, including geo location: http://www.w3.org/standards/techs/js#w3c_all. If you need the web app to have hooks into native code, check out Apache Cordova.

I'm sure the home page of Titanium does a good job of listing its advantages. It's based on JavaScript, though, not Java, if memory serves.

Also note that cross-platform approaches like Titanium and Cordova tend not to look quite as natural on any platform as apps that have been specifically developed for a platform. That may or may not be a concern for you.
