At the end of last year, Salesforce released the Mobile SDK 3.0 which added quite a few new features. Now, they’ve released the Mobile SDK 3.1 with some really nice new features. I have not had a chance to dive into the Mobile SDK prior to this release, but I think it’s made some great progress and should be something to give a try of.
Background on the Mobile SDK
The mobile SDK is a great way to write native apps for iOS, Android or hybrid apps using a number of web frameworks.
The updated SDK includes:
- A more consistent implementation for native and hybrid apps for iOS and Android
- Full CRUD operations for both online and offline usage
- CocoaPods for iOS
- Library updates
What can I do with this?
The updated mobile SDK makes it even easier now to get started with Android Studio and Gradle now being fully supported for native apps. To get started, checkout the Mobile SDK wiki page for the learning path you want to take. You can also take a look at the Android, iOS or Hybrid sample apps to get started.
