Sweet, isn’t it?

Even cooler part is that it’s built-in and with few simple configurations, your users are ready to use it. Let’s see how it works. Continue reading

This latest version of the SDK has several enhancements, but the most significant change is the support for secure offline storage. You can now develop hybrid and native iOS and Android applications that (securely) store data on the device and allow the application to function even when the user is offline. This new feature of the Mobile SDK will help our customers and partners develop mobile applications that address complex use cases while still meeting the stringent security requirements that are typical of an Enterprise mobile application (e.g. what happens to my company’s sensitive data… Continue reading
