As it currently functions this module is a Static Site Generator. This means that given a Drupal menu, Mobile App Generator will try to convert that to a static site including adding .html extensions and changing paths on src links as necessary. As such this module is a great case study in how to use Drupal as a static site generator.
If you are looking at creating mobile apps that wrap HTML sites then you should investigate Single Page Applications. Single Page Applications are easier to maintain than a folder of static .html files.
This presentation at DrupalCamp Austin was my first introduction to Single Page Applications and how many tools there are available to create mobile apps.

Left for legacy purposes:
- Build a site
- Add a mobile theme
- Install mag (Mobile App Generator)
- Select a menu, export the site (site.com/admin/mag)
- The menu must have a link pointing to <front> to generate the index.html(as of May 9th, 2012)
- Copy it to phonegap and ready is your PhoneGap mobile app
