To get an idea of how hard PhoneGap is and the learning curve in order to judge the possibility of the App creation.
I will be following this tutorial http://mobile.tutsplus.com/tutorials/phonegap/phonegap-from-scratch/ i will mark progress on a post to see how it is going.
Shelley did say that my initial idea is a little too much so it might be worth bringing it back in a little bit. If i find this during my tutorial of PhoneGap then i think i might have a solution.
The plan for if the work is too much is to do a purely content based app not dynamic content it will be based on online gaming and serve as a resource for gamers as a way to get into competitive gaming and understand how it works as well as what is required. As well as the app i will supply designs for a fully functioning dynamic app that was my original plan a scriming hub for games of multiple platforms and games. This would give me the benefit of both ideas get me into the start of app design and enable me plan to make a full version down the line.
