Salesforce on Windows 8



Can anyone tell me what are the options of developing a salesforce app for Windows 8 Tablets and Phones. I see that there are currently no Salesforce SDKs available. I am looking to develop a native app or possilbly a hybrid app.




Yes, You can develop the app on a language of your choice and use the Salesforce Mobile SDK to connect to salesforce.

Thank you Satish, but there is no SDK for Windows 8. There is only an SDK for Android and iOS

Yes, No SDK for Windows 8. In that case you can just use the plain REST API calls to access salesforce.

Unless there's a specific need to go native, you could write your Win8 app using HTML5 & JavaScript (I have some experience with that). In that case, you can use the JavaScript Rest Toolkit.


You might also want to look at the Salesforce Mobile Packs, especially the jQuery Mobile one although from what I tried earlier, it did not quiet work in Windows 8 (jQuery works but not jQuery Mobile).


I hope this helps.
