Each person that starts working with Apache Cordova or PhoneGap come to the question: what are the differents between these two technologies? Are the materials for Apache Cordova fit to PhoneGap and on the contrary?
Apache Cordova and PhoneGap are one technology with small differences. It was created as startup Nitobi. In 2011 Adobe bought startup and rename it to PhoneGap, In same time, company delegated rights to Apache Software Foundation, which call product Apache Cordova. Now PhoneGap based on product Apache Cordova. After each release of Apache Cordova, Adobe make their own adapted release.

For programer is only consist in names of files and variables. For PhoneGap Adobe propose extra features and services. Also Adobe pronounce, that their software is more stabe. After reading hundreds of PhoneGap bugs, some doubts are cast upon it.
