First impressions of iOS App SDK

This IS a game changer. As an iOS developer with some experience I was able to take an existing FileMaker 14 App (mymoneypad.com) already optimized for both the iPhone and iPad and using the new iOS App SDK build a native iOS App in less than an hour.

 

Here is an interesting comparison. The first video clip shows “myMoneyPad” launched from a Web clip icon. For this to work the user must download the FileMaker Go 14 App, the web clip and the myMoneyPad.fmp12 solution.

The second video clip shows a new way. As a native iOS App “myMoneyPad” no longer requires FileMaker Go 14 and can potentially be submitted to the App Store just like any other iOS App.

Thanks, FileMaker!
