Should You Use a Cross-Platform Mobile App Development Tool?

Should You Use a Cross-Platform Mobile App Development Tool
Over at the Mashable blog they have put together a very goo Pros and Cons list of using a cross-platform mobile app development tool. Tools such as PhoneGap make it very easy to have one HTML 5 based code base that will allow you to output native code for multiple mobile devices.

On the surface this looks like a great idea, but does it work as advertised? Well, if you avoid common pitfalls such as not considering how the user normally interacts with each device then it can be great. So, take a look at these Pros and Cons and let me know in the comments of your experience with these coding platforms.
