Salesforce Mobile SDK and Ionic - Local vs Remote
What we didn't talk about was the differences between Hybrid Local and Hybrid Remote.
If you deploy this through an app store ever time you want to update a portion of it, no matter how significant, you have to go through the approval process. This might take a couple days usually but could be an issue if it's a time sensitive change.
A Hybrid Local app would allow us to deploy updates as soon as we deploy them to our production Org. As an added benefit, with a Remote Hybrid app using a Visualforce page instead of
html that is shipped with the app it would be possible to use remote actions inside the app.
With a better understanding of the differences between a Hybrid Local and Hybrid Remote app let's take a look at creating a Hybrid Remote app. In the process of doing so we will try to reuse as much of our existing Hybrid Local app in the process.
