As a first time tech entrepreneur, I was confused if I should select one tool for mobile prototyping and other tools for implementation. I wanted to deliver my mobile app service as soon possible but I don't want to make mistakes when selecting tools. I have seen tools like Appcelerator, and PhoneGapp. Other than that should I also develop for android and iPhone separately, or should I use one of the above tools to develop once and deploy in different devices? Time and money is also a constraint for my startup. Please advice me. Thanks.

Just looked at Flinto suggested by Dan, seems a great tool indeed.
I previously used, which offers similar capabilities / user testing of a "fake but looking real" app.
Whatever, I highly recommend you to read, because it just seems there's confusion in what you aim to do with your proto. Regarding the frameworks you mentioned, it seems you're looking to build a MVP / live data prototype, whereas most answers (mine included) gave advice for low-qual or a high quality user prototype.
Also, for the backend stuff, I advise you to have a glance at MBaaS (Mobile Backend As A Service) like Stackmob or Parse.

Hope it helps!
