Is there any HTML5, CSS3 and JS tool that compiles your code, and turns it into a native mobile application?

I made a little research, and it looks like phone gap one of them. Which one do you use and why?

Define "app". Do you mean desktop app? Web app? Mobile app? –  luiscubal Sep 15 '12 at 15:04
Mobile app is what I mean. –  Coding Seahawks Sep 15 '12 at 15:11
Phonegap is certainly something you can use to make mobile apps out of HTML/CSS/JS. I would not classify it as a 'compiler', let alone a 'native' compiler. –  GrandmasterB Sep 15 '12 at 17:15
@CodingSeahawks Can you make sure the question is still asking what you are looking for? You accepted an answer that makes no sense considering the edits made to your question. Are you just looking for an IDE or are you trying to turn HTML5 apps into native apps? –  Anna Lear Sep 15 '12 at 23:10

I use ActiveState Komodo Edit, which supports HTML5 and CSS3 in version 6.0. Free download here.

There is also a notepad++ which i was using previously. You may look at that as well, it is also FREE.
