According to Salesforce.com, Salesforce Touch “…gives you real-time access to the same information that you see in the office, but organized for work on the go “. It’s designed to work with all touch devices, however as of the Salesforce Spring ’13 edition only Apple iPad (2nd- and 3rd-generation), with iOS® version 5.0 or higher is supported. For us Android aficionados, that leaves us a little wanting to say the least. However, for those keen to use Salesforce Touch on their Android, there is a temporary solution until it is officially released. Here’s how:
- Install the Dolphin Browser on your Android smartphone or tablet.
- Once installed, change the User Agent under settings within Dolphin Browser to iPad
- Go to login.salesforce.com in the Dolphin Browser and login with your username/password
- Now have a look around. Sometimes I have to refresh the browser to get touch functionality but all in all for a temporary fix it works not too bad. Let’s hope for an official release in the Summer’13 edition.
