There are multiple options depending on what platforms you want to offer your app on and how.


1) You could build mobile optimised Visualforce pages to access your objects using Visualforce + any mobile pack (example jQuery Mobile, Angular + Twitter Bootstrap etc.)

2) Then, if you want to offer it as a hybrid app on iOS and Android, you'll need to invoke your VF page from the hybrid template

3) Simplest solution would be to make your Visualforce page accessible via Salesforce1 and then use Salesforce1

4) There's another option that you could still write a native app using the Mobile SDK


It all depends on your development skillset, distribution strategy, preference for native/ hybrid/ mobile web etc.


I hope this helps.
