A Peek at Things to Come: Salesforce.com Chatter for the Android

Android is quickly catching up to its competitors in the Applications arena. Salesforce.com’s has launched a Chatter Developer Challenge, and programmer Jeff Douglas has created a Chatter Android App. The Salesforce.com Chatter application for Android was built on the Force.com platform and uses Force.com Remote Access Applications with 3-legged OAuth for security.

With the Salesforce.com Chatter Android Application, users can:

  • Display Chatter NewsFeed
  • Update Chatter Status
  • Store Chatter NewsFeed in local SQLite database
  • Customize a project or object that you are following and view its Chatter Feed
  • Store project Chatter Feed in local SQLite database

Jeff Douglas has also posted a video to show the functionality of the Salesforce.com Chatter Application for Android:

The Android Chatter application uses Google App Engine to tie the application together as a security model. The application uses OAuth to authorize access to Force.com and for access to Chatter feeds the application uses Force.com Remote Access Application.
