Total Newbie Developer Questions



I am totally new to SalesForce and am having some difficulty understanding my options as a developer.


I am an iPhone developer  - I have taken a look at the tools available for Mac and they appear as if they could be repurposed with some effort to be useful on the iPhone.

So that appears to answer the question of what tools to use.  It uses XML-Soap.


I am aware that Salesforce provides an iPhone app which is generally useful but idea is a utility that adds data to a customers instance using the API instead of the user having to key the data themselves...


So now as I have rummaged around I understand there are various editions of SalesForce that have various capabilities.


Can I use the xml-soap api on all editions?

Do I need to spend $5000 for a security review?

How do I know whether or not I need a clientID?
