Developing pages for Mobile devices

According to this documentation : http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/pages/Content/pages_mobile_develop.htm

There are performance issues with developing pages for iOS, and Blackberry. Is this documentation outdated, or still a relevant guideline? If it's still quiret relevant, what are recommended alternatives? 

From my understanding SF1 is not a viable option when considering implementing a solution for case submission/deflection from mobile apps as it requires every user to have a license/sfdc login info, and that isn't always feasible from a business perspective.

There are 2 parts to this question

A) The link is outdated for sure as i) It has no reference to Salesforce1 and developers can now expose mobile-ready pages to run in Salesforce1 container ii) BB10 browser follows a different paradigm. Similarly, the iOS Safari browser has undergone several improvements over the years

B) Salesforce1 does provide built in case management (http://www.salesforce.com/mobile/features/case-management/)functionality but you're right it does have licensing aspects to it.

Thank you for your response Gaurav. I am in the process of searching for more updated docmentation for developing VF pages for iOS/Android/Blackberry, are there any additional performance concerns I should consider moving forward that may not be explicity documented?

Hi There,

There are some known issues on iOS8 specifically such as this one related to taps not correcting registering on VF pages in Salesforce1 (https://success.salesforce.com/issues_view?id=a1p30000000T5hOAAS).

You can look up other known issues (https://success.salesforce.com/) at Success Community but there are really no show stoppers in my opinion. I would recommend dealing with them on a case by case basis.
