iOS App Development

We specialize in designing and deploying professional mobile apps.


What’s the most efficient way to deploy, update and release your iOS application to the iPhone/iPad? Utilize the FileMaker iOS SDK as your iOS development platform.

There are a variety of different programming environments one can use to write a custom iOS app. When choosing between Objective-C, Swift or HTML5, FileMaker is the obvious choice if you want the most speedy and efficient way to develop and deploy your app.

The combination of FileMaker and the iOS SDK allow us to get your app developed, tested, and deployed into the app store faster than any other development environment.

Prototyping is particularly impressive as we can have an app running within FileMaker Go for preview and testing in as little as a few days (utilizing FileMaker Go allows us to bypass the app store deployment and approval phase).

With FileMaker Go 16’s integration capabilities, your iOS app can act as a front end for data stored in a variety of other systems like SalesForce, Dynamics, or Zoho.

Like any iOS application, Your app can be managed via your preferred mobile device management system.

Easy Installation and Updates

Utilizing ‘in app’ update technology that we have developed, we can deploy new versions of the application to your users on an as needed basis with little or no involvement from your users.

Local or Server Based Solutions

Using FileMaker as our development platform for iOS apps allows us to easily choose between several options for managing the data in the application. We can create an app whose data is entirely resident on the device, completely server based, or use a synchronization model so that your application can operate offline, but synch data to your server as required.

FileMaker Go App for the iOS

Not sure you need a full fledged iOS app? FileMaker Go, an iOS app from FileMaker Inc., allows your application to be deployed to the iPhone or iPad without requiring the app store approval process.
