Apache Cordova with Visual Studio 2013 CTP3.1 or Visual Studio 2015

Microsoft has released the Apache Cordova Tools for Visual Studio.  The entire download will actually take a while.

Apache Cordova is a platform for building native mobile applications using HTML, CSS and JavaScript.  

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.

Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova allow you to use Visual Studio to develop Cordova based apps.
