Jquery Mobile or similar platform based on HTML5 is probably the best way to go. Pretty much anything is going to require serious work to get something that is a "App" instead of just a mobile-friendly web application since you not only need to redesign the interface, but to get the best user experience you'll need to redesign how a user interacts with the application.

This means you need to write code to handle this. Each application is going to be different, so it is best to customize this to your specific application.

I have been experimenting with Jquery Mobile for specific forms and interfaces that are required to be used on a mobile phone and it really does give you some good user experience with little effort on the front end. OpenACS provides a great resource for the back end development.

If you go this way you might need Json-procs.tcl from CVS HEAD.
