ZM skins for mobile

Earlier versions of ZM (1.25/1.26) supported XHTML and mobile skins which you could enable via ?skin=xml and ?skin=mobile They were meant for application developers to extract information for their apps and run ZM on mobile devices. These skins are no longer maintained and instead ZM has a [REST based API ] to replace the functionality.

As far as mobile skins are concerned, ZM will likely discontinue support for skin=mobile after 1.29. Mobile users can either use one of the front ends above or use the standard web interface of ZM from a mobile device.
