2. Intel XDK
Another tool for HTML5 application development is Intel XDK. It is a cross platform development kit that is elaborated for writing of a single source code for different devices. The good news is that Intel XDK is a free integrated environment used for cross platform applications development.
Beyond that, Intel XDK provides support of not only Apache Cordova API interface. An extended application interface (intel.xdk) is offered by the tool too. It contains functions that are not foreseen by Cordova.
