Creating android and ios app and uploading in play store

I want to create a online mobile app for retriving inventory from clover pos and placing orders in Mobile. Once they place the order, order needs to be send to clover POS system. Is it possible whether can we place the orders in mobile app with Clover Rest API in both customer own mobile devices(both ios and Android)

This is doable but you'll probably need to something server side.
You need an api token to communicate with the Clover API (get inventory and create orders). This token wont be available on your customer facing devices.
You will need to store an api token server-side then your requests can proxy via your server.
Hope that helps.

If we are going to use API tokens. How can I get the api Tokens in PROD? If we are going to use Oauth it requires app ID. But we are not creating any apps in clover.

No real way around this, you will need to create a (web) app and follow the Clover approval process to be able to generate tokens via the oauth flow.

For the development purpose we are going to use test tokens. Once everything ready we need to submit site URL. Is it okay?
