Programmers Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional programmers interested in conceptual questions about software development. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want some suggestions about the project concepts/ideas on HTML5 PhoneGap mobile app development. I want to develop some app that can be a learning curve to get to know about these technologies. Any specific app concepts wherein I can get myself accustomed with using features like camera, geolocation, accelerometer, etc and implement those as a coherent part of the project work?

Apologies if this might not be appropriate forum to ask such question. But I could not find any relevant stackexchange site for this.

In essence, you are asking "what should I learn next" which isn't all that constructive for a Q&A site. The faq lists these types of questions as being off-topic. –  GlenH7 Apr 23 '13 at 15:23
@GlenH7: To be fair enough, I am not asking "what should I learn next" rather the ideas about different project scenarios. –  SASM Apr 23 '13 at 15:42
I picked up on the nuance, yes. Either way, I believe it is still a category of question the faq excludes. "what language should I learn next" and "what project should I work on next" are equivalently not constructive for the site. –  GlenH7 Apr 23 '13 at 15:48

So write a series of small Hello World apps, each exercising a different feature.

  • Take a photo and display it on the screen
  • Show the current lat/lon/altitude of the phone
  • Show the current G forces on the phone

and so on. Converting those features into a useful product is "just" details. (OK, a LOT of details).

When you're learning a new technology it is reasonable to build small one-off proof of concept apps.

Dive in!
