When developing a hybrid app with the Mobile SDK, you need to specify whether it is a 'local' or 'remote'. Local apps use resources on the device, remote apps use resources on a remote server e.g. Visualforce.
My question is: are these mutually exclusive? What if I wanted to start with a local page, then link to a remote page? I assume that can be done but can the context be shared (e.g. authentication/session?) And can the remote page hand off back to a local page?
Just wondering whether it is feasible or a good idea to do an app this way, where I want to minimise the amount of local pages but retain some for specific purposes such as good performance, accessing device features etc.
