Compilation of already published Articles/Ideas/Problems-Solutions which I faced or came across over the period of time. Largely a place for me to document it as note-to-self. Nothing serious. :)

Appcelerator Titanium vs PhoneGap: which produces better native apps?
"better" w/r/t native look & feel, speed, cross-phone issues, development flexibility, etc. [mostly concerned w/ iOS and Android]
PhoneGap isn't made for developing native applications. PhoneGap gives you a better choice for sharing applications with your user. It is the way to transform your application for mobile phones (with a Web Container, like Braden mentioned) and serve it to the Apple App Store and Android Market instead forcing the user to make a bookmark or a shortcut on his homescreen. PhoneGap allows you to use some of the phones features throught APIs to enhance your application.
Conclusion: Titanium produces better native apps because (of the mapping) they are native. PhoneGap Apps are just Web Apps.
