Q: How does the licensing work for the Mobile SDK?
A: The SDK is released under the BSD open source license.
Q: Will apps developed using the Mobile SDK have to change when touch.salesforce.com becomes available?
A: Native, hybrid, and HTML5 developed with the Mobile SDK are implemented independent of touch.salesforce.com. When touch becomes available, both apps will co-exist with each other.
Q: Can I use the Mobile SDK to develop mobile apps for phones as well as tablets? Does the development approach differ if I'm developing for a phone vs. tablet environment?
A: The Mobile SDK supports building mobile applications for all form factors (phone or tablet). The basic approach to using the Mobile SDK to develop apps (native, hybrid, or web) does not change, no matter which form factor you're targeting. You would, however, have to design your application differently depending on whether it is optimized for a phone or table environment (or both).
Q: Can I develop a mobile web application using Visualforce that does not require Salesforce authentication?
A: Yes. You can create a public Sites page that exposes the mobile Visualforce page(s). Users will then be able to access your mobile web application without having to authenticate with Salesforce.com.
Q: How do I develop web (HTML5) mobile applications for Database.com (where Visualforce is not supported)?
Q: Are there any general rules or guidelines on when to use Apex (via JS Remoting, Apex REST, etc.) vs. the REST API when developing Visualforce-based web mobile applications?
Q: When developing a hybrid mobile application, do I have to use Visualforce for my HTML5 pages?
Q: Can I access device features like the camera, contacts database, microphone, etc. with a hybrid application?
Q: Can I list a hybrid mobile application on the Apple or Android Appstores?
A: Yes. In fact that is one of the main advantages of building a hybrid application when compared to a 100% web (HTML5) mobile app. It is, however, important to note that the architecture that you chose for your hybrid application (i.e., whether you host your HTML5 markup in Visualforce or embed it in the container) will have a direct bearing on the security review that is part of certain Appstore listing requirements.
Q: Does the Mobile SDK support offline secure storage for hybrid applications?
A: The Mobile SDK does not currently support offline storage. That feature is, however, on the near-term product roadmap for the SDK and will be supported in the near future.
Q: The Mobile SDK for building hybrid application uses OAuth 2.0. Does it also support SAML 2.0 based authentication?
A: Yes. You can configure OAuth 2.0 to authenticate via SAML 2.0. See this article for further details.
Q: Can I customize the login page that is presented to users when they launch a hybrid mobile application built using the Mobile SDK?
A: Only ISVs can customize the login page that is presented to users of a hybrid mobile app.
