Just getting into the question of how to deliver a native ios experience for a SaaS app I’m building and found out about iconic. It – looks like – cordova + iconic delivers the equivalent of a native ios app that can be delivered via the App Store.
But I see a lot of “PhoneGap is too slow” entries on google, and the wikipedia article on phonegap (and this what you get when you search wikipedia for cordova) says: “However, the use of web-based technologies leads many PhoneGap applications to run slower than native applications with similar functionality. Adobe Systems warns that applications built using PhoneGap may be rejected by Apple for being too slow or not feeling “native” enough (having appearance and functionality consistent with what users have come to expect on the platform).”
So, is it as fast as native ios, or not?
