Mobile and the Salesforce Mobile SDK
Ride the wave of massive mobile device adoption with the new Salesforce.com Mobile SDK, now available to all Force.com and Database.com developers. The Salesforce Mobile SDK supports three development approaches for building mobile apps: native, HTML5, and hybrid.
- You can code native apps for each mobile platform (e.g., Android, iOS), taking advantage of each platform's native capabilities.
The Mobile SDK is an open-source suite of familiar technologies—like a REST API and OAuth 2.0—that you can use to build great mobile apps.
