4D solutions have always been safe and stable. This is because 4D invests heavily in developing and updating security features. 4D continues this focus in 4D v18 R4 with a new feature to further enhance its security toolkit. A new class providing a set of methods to perform common cryptographic operations is now available: CryptoKey class.
4D v18 R4 delivers a very exciting feature … Push notifications. These are messages sent directly to the user’s mobile device from your app. Push notifications provide users with relevant information to encourage them to engage with an app. As of this feature release, 4D for iOS not only allows doing so but also allows you to do it with ease!
For email authentication, 4D for iOS also makes your life easier.
Monitoring access to your mobile app is a very important capability that deserves further consideration. Email validation is one of the simplest and most secure ways to determine the authenticity and legitimacy of the person trying to log into your app. 4D for iOS enables you to easily handle this validation process by verifying that an email comes from whom it claims to be sent from, and by allowing you to block harmful uses of the email.
Very cool stuff is coming in 4D for iOS with 4D v18 R3! To make a long story short, 40+ ready-to-use templates are at your disposal and you have access to an additional integrated Gallery which can be used directly from the project editor. The gallery is based on a dynamic list of up-to-date templates from GitHub. Feel free to use and test the templates and even share your own custom-designed templates with other developers!
In a previous version of 4D for iOS, we introduced Many to One relations. 4D v18 completes the list of relations available in 4D for iOS by allowing you to easily build the most complete apps with the most engaging user experience you can get on a mobile phone!
A few weeks ago, we introduced action parameters so you could better interact with your 4D for iOS apps. They let you add, edit and delete records from your iOS device using edition forms. Well things are becoming even more interesting in 4D v17 R6, because now you can add pictures!
iOS 13, first launched at the Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2019), to be released today, September 19. And we couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that some of the features Apple has unveiled for their latest iOS, will be available in 4D for iOS with the release of the v18! Here’s everything you need to know about the advances we have in store for you:
CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete), a pillar of database actions, makes its debut in 4D for iOS in 4D v17 R6.
In 4D v17 R5, we introduced actions so you could better interact with your 4D for iOS apps. This included the ability to create actions to execute 4D code from your iOS apps. Things are getting even more interesting with this R-release, now you can easily manage and edit your app content using parameters.
We’re thrilled to announce that support for actions in 4D for iOS is available with 4D v17 R5! This feature allows you to enjoy more interactivity with your mobile app. For example, you can set a task as completed or finished, or flag events to be checked. All with the swipe of a finger, or by simply selecting an action from a menu.
As of 4D v17 R5, 4D for iOS supports N to One relations so you can use descriptive relation names and simplify defining your project structure. You can visualize all of your table relations directly in the Structure section of the Project Editor.
