Apportable vs Crosswalk: What are the differences?

What is Apportable? Objective-C for Android. Apportable lets you cross-compile your iOS app and re-use the same code across platforms.

What is Crosswalk? Replace Android’s default WebView with Crosswalk, a predictable web runtime for developing powerful Android and Cordova apps. Crosswalk is a web runtime for ambitious HTML5 applications. All the features of a modern browser, deep device integration and an API for adding native extensions.

          Apache Cordova
          Apache Cordova is a set of device APIs that allow a mobile app developer to access native device function such as the camera or accelerometer from JavaScript. Combined with a UI framework such as jQuery Mobile or Dojo Mobile or Sencha Touch, this allows a smartphone app to be developed with just HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
          PhoneGap
          PhoneGap is a web platform that exposes native mobile device apis and data to JavaScript. PhoneGap is a distribution of Apache Cordova. PhoneGap allows you to use standard web technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript for cross-platform development, avoiding each mobile platforms' native development language. Applications execute within wrappers targeted to each platform, and rely on standards-compliant API bindings to access each device's sensors, data, and network status.
