The WordPress API stands for the WordPress Application Programming Interface. It can be separated into multiple API sections / topics. Each covers the functions involved in and use of a given set of functionality. Together they form what might be called the WordPress API, which is the plugin/theme/add-on interface created by the entire WordPress project.
2. Create native mobile apps with Word Press and PhoneGap
Note that you can easily create a mobile website with WordPress by using a mobile theme or themes that support mobile devices. This may be a quick and easy way to create mobile applications out of WordPress, but it does not provide a native interface for the application.
But you can combine WordPress with PhoneGap to build some really cool mobile applications. While it may not be obvious, WordPress can be used in conjunction with PhoneGap to create native mobile apps, with a powerful backend content management system (CMS) provided by WordPress.
Note: That Adobe DreamWeaver CS 6 comes with PhoneGap build.
