    What's a framework or a tool that could be used to build a mobile app quickly? The mobile app would need to display lists using data from an API server.

    In case you don't know what I'm asking.. something like Codecharge for websites, but for mobile apps. This is what Codecharge can do for websites: http://www.yessoftware.com/products/product.php?product_id=1 I'm looking for such tool but for mobile apps.

    PS: I'm a developer and have built mobile apps using native SDKs, Phonegap, Titanium and Rhodes... looking for something quicker than those.

    Thanks, but GameSalad is toward mobile game development. My app is more like a Kayak kind of app with tables and data from API.

    Yep, I mentioned it on my first post. Phonegap still requires a lot of coding from scratch.

    Are you serious? I made 2 mobile Apps using cordova ( OS version of phonegap).
    that primarily display data from a rest api and found It to be easy as fuck.
    If this is to much coding for you I think you might be better of hiring somebody to do it for you.
    Don't think that you going to find anything to do what you want that is easier than phonegap/cordova.
    I case you do please let me know :)

    It never hurts asking, right? :)

    You're right about Cordova, but honestly I don't like the final result with Cordova - basically you get a native app with a webview.
