    Cross platform development

    I have heard a rumour that it is possible to create apps for smart phones using only HTML5, CSS3 & JavaScript.
    Up till now I have used PhoneGap to make my programs cross platform compatible, but I have been given to understand that with only HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript one can create crossplatform applications(Cross platform = Android, IOS and Blackberry).
    Can someone please point me in the correct direction?

    Re: Cross platform development

    For the platform you've mentioned (iOS, Android, BB) the only way is a hybrid client, like PhoneGap (there are others too).
    There are however new mobile platforms that support direct HTML5 development: Blackberry 10 has a technology called Webworks allowing for packaging HTML5 code as an native app; also Windows 8/WinRT allows to create Javascript projects and package them as apps.

    Intel and others are working on HTML5 cross platform solution tools too.
