The Salesforce Platform Mobile Services are a set of tools, frameworks, and APIs to help you rapidly build enterprise mobile apps for any device. The Salesforce Platform Mobile Services pair with your mobile app just as seamlessly as Force.com pairs with your enterprise apps. It is a powerful MBaaS providing mobile developers backend storage and additional features like configurable security, secure offline storage, and push notifications amongst several other platform services. We’re pleased to announce that in an upcoming launch we’ll be releasing new mobile packs centered around Sencha Touch.
In Part 1 and Part 2 of our series on Developing Mobile Applications with Force.com and Sencha Touch, we built out a simple mobile application hosted in a Salesforce.com Visualforce page to display a list of Leads, and allowing add, edit and delete capability using an Apex controller. In this third part of the series, we want to highlight the enterprise data capability of Sencha Touch, so we’ll focus on how the framework allows us to work with large datasets by adding paging and search capability to the PocketCRM application.
