The couple of Phonegap apps that I worked on, things were too messed up.
- Is it Phonegap or is it Cordova?
- Do I build locally or do I used Phonegap Build?
- Using jQuery Mobile, which event happens first – device ready or jquery ready?
- Why is this too slow?
There were times, when I felt that I had absolutely no control on the app. This is where my frustrations with Phonegap started growing … not to mention the insane compile complications.
This is where I first learn about the Cordova project and how there are multiple spin-offs of that. Phonegap being just one of those … I always assumed that PG and Cordova were synonyms. Guess not.

Every entrepreneur dreams of creating something scalable. Leaving behind a legacy which people look back in wonder and say … how did they achieve this.
What do we mean by Scale?
Scale could mean multiple things for different people. The CFO would look at scale and say more profits, the Head BD would say more clients, the Head Sales would say more revenues, the Founder would say more valuation, the HR would say more people!
At 13 Llama Studio, when we started the firm, it was just three people and we literally started in a garage. For us scale means all those terms combined, and in the past two years we have trebled our team, our sales and our clients.
