This is the 3rd installment of the “Building Beautiful Mobile Apps..” video blog series. In this we will explore how we can use the new Visualforce Remote Objects (available as of Spring ’14) technique in our AngularJS and Ionic app to interact with Salesforce. We will also see how it compares with Remote Actions.
