Create iOS apps for your team


Use the FileMaker Platform and the iOS App SDK to create iOS apps for your business. Then, deploy these apps to your team through mobile device management (MDM).


The iOS App SDK is ideal for experienced FileMaker developers looking for a convenient way to distribute custom iOS apps within their organizations. This tool is a utility that uses the Command Line Interface to convert a custom app you have created using the FileMaker Platform into an iOS app.


With the iOS App SDK you can:


  • Brand your iOS app with a custom icon for easy identification
  • Control when you apply FileMaker Go updates to your iOS apps
  • Automate the deployment of iOS apps using MDM


Also included is a helpful guide that details the steps necessary to build and deploy your iOS apps.





You will need a FileMaker Developer Subscription (and be logged into the community with that account) in order to download the software here. Distributing iOS apps also requires enrollment in the Apple Developer Program.



iOS App SDK support policy


FileMaker, Inc. does not recommend or support the use of the iOS App SDK to distribute custom iOS apps using the public App Store. More information on recommended deployment methods is available to FileMaker Developer Subscription members.
