In case you haven't heard, FileMaker Inc. has released a new tool which allows you to create a native iOS application from a FileMaker solution. To learn more about the FileMaker iOS App SDK, read this FileMaker help article.

We're pleased to announce that we have tested MirrorSync with FileMaker iOS App SDK and it is fully compatible!

MirrorSync is already the easiest way to add sync to your FileMaker solution, and the process of integrating MirrorSync is no different with the FileMaker iOS App SDK.

We are really excited about this new tool from FileMaker, which now allows you to:

  • build a custom native iOS application for your client or company to use with iPhone or iPad
  • distribute the application to users without the need to first download and install FileMaker Go
  • distribute the application directly to user devices with Apple's Mobile Device Management (MDM) and TestFlight, used to distribute beta versions of the application

There are a couple of things you will need to create your native iOS application:

  • FileMaker Developer subscription, which will give you access to the tool itself
  • Apple Developer subscription, which allows you to set application identification and provisioning profile used to actually deploy the application onto an iOS device
  • A Mac with the latest version of Xcode installed: Currently the process of putting the application together can be done only on a Mac

Let us know if you'd like our assistance in turning your FileMaker solution into a native iOS application - we would be happy to help! Just send a message to infobox@360works.com or fill out proposal request form using the button below.
