Porting an Android Phonegap App with Plug-Ins

I have an Android application built with PhoneGap - HTML5 - jQuery Mobile and that leverages multiple plug-ins. One plug-in is used for native date-picker, another one for local notification. I'd like to port this app to BB10, and need advice about this. What would be easier, which approach (native or Cascades) should I take?

 

Thanks in advance

Re: Porting an Android Phonegap App with Plug-Ins

We do have PhoneGap support in BlackBerry 10 however some plugins are still be developed.

 

For a date picker, you can always use <input type="date"/> I believe, and for adding notification support you could use our API.  We actually have a sample app on GitHub that deals with notifications quite well - https://github.com/blackberry/BB10-WebWorks-Community-Samples/tree/master/notificationshub/complete

 

If you're not sure about whether to continue in html5, or go native with Cascades I would recommend heading over the http://developer.blackberry.com where we outline to different platforms.
