4D FOR IOS is coming soon!

Automatically translated from English

Do you need to extend your 4D application to mobiles? Are you in a business where you need to constantly check, for example, unpaid invoices or customer quotes? Perhaps you also need to perform a quick search for a product reference to answer a customer? They’re all simple actions that can be performed from a mobile device. And 4D for iOS is the perfect tool for this!

The 4D for iOS product was announced during 4D Summit 2018, opening a whole world of possibilities for you and your customers. It’s fully integrated in 4D, which means that you can easily create a new mobile project directly from 4D, without the need of any prior expertise building native iOS apps!

Why?

Mobility is not new to 4D. A lot of our customers are already mobile, either using external development or the 4D Mobile solution. 4D Mobile is very powerful, but requires a deep knowledge of JavaScript and Angular, so this solution is mostly intended for professional web developers.

We’ve received requests for something simple to use. A solution that would not require specific expertise. A solution integrated in 4D. The 4D for iOS project has been created to respond to these customer requests.

WHAT’s 4D for iOS?

  • Fully integrated in 4D
  • Create native apps
  • No other technology to learn
  • Support offline mode
  • Open solution

What’s in it?

In 4D for iOS, you will find all you need to create your first native iOS app within minutes:

  • Nice and clean interface
  • Large icons library
  • Elegant templates that fully follow Apple guidelines
  • Tools to test your projects on the simulator or directly on your device
  • Many other surprises to discover in my future posts … stay tuned!

what’s next?

We’ll release the very first version of 4D for iOS as a beta in the second half of 2018 with 4D v17 R2. The first feature set is still limited, but we’ll iteratively release more and more features with the upcoming R-releases.

We welcome you with open arms to the magical world of 4D for iOS! And we couldn’t be more thrilled to walk you trough all the great features we have for you. As soon as the product is released, feel free to click on Toolbar New button > Mobile Project… congratulations your first mobile project is alive!
