The best thing I think would be to use Laravel as a backend that provides an API. Make the front-end in something like AngularJS and then you can port the front-end to mobile with Phone Gap. This way all your front-end stuff is already loaded into the installed app which saves you some bandwidth and you only have to load the dynamic data through the API.

Thanks, that does sound like the best way to get a high-performance PhoneGap app without refactoring too much. Looks like it's time to dive into Angular.

Regarding the API...do you guys have any recommendation or best practice? I have been trying to do it via JSON but not working as expected...

I highly recommend Phil Sturgeon's Book "How To Build APIs You Wont Hate". It's quite informative for those new to building APIs and it covers a lot of interesting topics. Worth a read, JSON is the way forward though :)

How did this/is this project going?

I'm about to do something similar. Moving off blade, and having Laravel as API, with RESTful JSON. So it could easily serve the web browser and ios/android apps.

But instead of Angular, i'm going with Emberjs.

I went with Emberjs instead of Angular and I'm having a hard time with Ember's Data Adapters. Apparently it doesn't work out of the box.

I'm searching for a custom adapter at this point

I think you can create your app using blade and then serve it from within a native app Check out my answers here: https://laracasts.com/discuss/channels/requests/phonegap-and-l... Hint: use something like http://gonative.io
