Security Review: is my app a Native or Composite app?

I've built an app that utilizes salesforce, it's an application for cold calling, so it must interface with my external server to initiate telephone calls--however the application (flex), and all database storage is done natively on the force.com platform, and will be hosted in the cloud. The only item I must access an external server for is initiating a telephone call. No user data, or records are ever sent to my servers, just the phone number to inititate a call to. Would I get away with declaring this as a Native app? I'm a small startup, and at this point, paying $5,000 for a security review would be out of the question.

 

Thanks.

A native application cannot make 3rd party calls. If you use API access then it's considered Composite by definition.  The $5,000 Security Review is only for subscription based services.  If you offer your solution free of charge then there is no cost.
