Thank you for contacting us.
1. If you are developing for another company you have the option to share the service-account with your contractor by registering and passing him the credentials of your account. We plan to introduce a way to change the account owner pretty soon, so you will be able to simply pass them the account for them to pay until they want to have the app running. We have clients who also accommodate the price of the service and charge your customer for the Backend Services separately as part of all development services you charge your clients.
2. We plan to introduce ability to connect to your existing MS SQL database, so you can utilize all the services of our Backend Services without having to store your data on our servers. Let me know if you are interested in learning more about this upcoming feature, and I can get in touch with you on a separate thread.

Hybrid apps are created with HTML5/JS/CSS and the app is built as native shell. If a need for native code arises, one should use custom Cordova plugins (see Working with Custom Plugins
). Currently AppBuilder supports only static frameworks, but the good news is that Cordova have added this functionality in the latest version of plugman (the part responsible for your custom Cordova plugins) and we would update to it for our next major version scheduled for beginning of March. The following forum
contains more information on the matter if you are interested.
