Cordova vs PhoneGap
Phonegap is built on Apache Cordova nothing else. You can think of Apache Cordova as the engine that powers PhoneGap. Over time, the PhoneGap distribution may contain additional tools and thats why they differ in command But they do same thing.
PhoneGap is built on top of Cordova and basically extends Cordova.
PhoneGap distribution may contain additional tools that tie into other Adobe services, which would not be appropriate for an Apache project. For example,and together make a whole lot of strategic sense. PhoneGap will always remain free, open source software and will always be a free distribution of Apache Cordova.Currently, the only difference is in the name of the download package and will remain so for some time.
