Formulas are evaluated by the server. This means that when a record is synchronized with the mobile device, and a formula field is included in the data set, the results of the most recent execution of the formula will appear on the mobile device. You can use formulas that include cross-object references. However, if you edit a record that would change the evaluation of a formula, that new value won't appear until the record where the formula appears is synchronized again.
