AEM leverages Adobe PhoneGap and Adobe Publishing Solutions, allowing you to create and manage both content-rich and utility-based cross-platform mobile applications:
AEM integrates with the Adobe PhoneGap Build service to simplify the application build and deploy process.
Adobe ContentSync enables users to easily download page and content updates Over-the-Air (OTA) to their devices without having to re-install the application or download from the appStore, Google Play, or other app sources.
Adobe Analytics is fully integrated into AEM apps and allows detailed tracking of distribution, geolocation, operating systems, devices, click-streams, iBeacon tracking and more.
Developers can use the AEM PhoneGap Starter Kit along with additional resources found in https://github.com/adobe-marketing-cloud-apps to bootstrap AEM apps with PhoneGap, including a reference native app running Cordova Webviews.
The readme for the Starter Kit Git repository includes a tutorial for using the starter kit:
