I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You need to decide first on what kind of app you are trying to develop. If you don't need hardware, or you need limited hardware access, then creating a mobile-friendly website would be simple to make cross-platform. For the hardware side of things, you can look into something like PhoneGap or Cordova to bridge your Javascript to the device's hardware.
