FWIW, I would really use caution when betting on this for a project... as of 3.4, the cordova/phonegap API is very flakey at best.

For example:

When trying to implement their media capture plugin, it works as advertised on iOS, but is buggy in 3.3, when taking a photo, the success callback doesn't fire until you bring up the camera again to take a second photo. In 3.4 it's completely not functioning on Android.

Also, the keyboard plugin doesn't work correctly, which luckily there's several 3rd party ones that actually work.

It's almost always a headache when adding any plugin. I actually found that it was way faster to write Objective C (for the first time) for push notifications instead of the plugin.

Tutorials are any resources you learn from.

Examples: an intro to html5 screencast, a pdf about git, photoshop effects tutorials, meta-programming in ruby, lambda calculus, higher-order fixed-point combinators.

Tools are websites, apps or services used -on- your project (indirectly), to aid the process.

Examples: A color scheme generator, email marketing software, usability heat maps, css3 code generators, a downloadable png compressor.

Assets are downloadable files used -in- your projects, usually as code, textures, or images.

Examples: a jquery sticky menu, photoshop brushes, background textures, mvc frameworks, twitter bootstrap, 960 grid system.
