Salesforce mobile app development tutorial

Qs1 add app button.pngRunning apps in the cloud is great because there are no servers to configure, no software to install, and no ongoing maintenance of your infrastructure. This tutorial teaches you how to build a cloud app in two easy steps.

  1. Register for a free Force.com Developer Edition org.
  2. Create the foundation of a simple app without writing a line of code.

If you haven't already done so, start by registering for a free Force.com Developer Edition instance of Salesforce ("DE org" for short). Use an email address that you can access immediately, submit the form, and wait for an activation email. Once you receive the activation email, open it, click the login link, and set your password.

Creating the foundation of a basic cloud app with Force.com requires just a few mouse clicks. In this tutorial, you use the App Quick Start wizard to create an app that can help you manage merchandise records in a warehouse.

From the Force.com Home page, click the big Add App button in the Getting Started section. (If you're starting from somewhere else, click | Setup to return to the Force.com Home page).

Next, fill in the form as follows to match this screen, then click Create:

Once the wizard finishes, click Go To My App, Start Tour, and follow along for a quick overview of your app's user interface.

To try out your new app, just click New to create a new record of Merchandise.

Then add a new merchandise record for "Laptop" computers.

The app you just created is very simple - or is it? Look closely around the screen to see all of the functionality available by default to your Warehouse app.
