Salesforce Mobile App Customization

All custom objects, tailored page layouts, built list views, and other customizations become part of metadata, which is a set of definitions that describe your particular Salesforce org. Most of these metadata are automatically available in the Salesforce mobile app because it reads those definitions and displays data accordingly. But the desktop environment is different from the mobile environment, so we need to do customization on Mobile App.
