In case you haven't heard, FileMaker Inc. has released a new tool which allows you to create a native iOS application from a FileMaker solution. To learn more about the FileMaker iOS App SDK, read this FileMaker help article.

We're pleased to announce that we have tested MirrorSync with FileMaker iOS App SDK and it is fully compatible!

MirrorSync is already the easiest way to add sync to your FileMaker solution, and the process of integrating MirrorSync is no different with the FileMaker iOS App SDK. 

We are really excited about this new tool from FileMaker, which now allows you to: 

  • build a custom native iOS application for your client or company to use with iPhone or iPad
  • distribute the application to users without the need to first download and install FileMaker Go
  • distribute the application directly to user devices with Apple's Mobile Device Management (MDM) and TestFlight, used to distribute beta versions of the application


There are a couple of things you will need to create your native iOS application: 

  • FileMaker Developer subscription, which will give you access to the tool itself
  • Apple Developer subscription, which allows you to set application identification and provisioning profile used to actually deploy the application onto an iOS device
  • A Mac with the latest version of Xcode installed: Currently the process of putting the application together can be done only on a Mac


Let us know if you'd like our assistance in turning your FileMaker solution into a native iOS application - we would be happy to help! Just send a message to [email protected]

I was encouraged by Jeremy to report here that I have independently verified this is the case.  A few things I have learned.

A Mirror Sync requires 1 (ONE!) connection to FMserver. Even for multiple users. You do need multiple seats with 360works though.

B You have to have the application run as full admin (a data entry default does not work) even though Mirror Sync signs in as Admin - one compiled the user security setting is not changed.

C ******* its fast!

Im playing with install on timer to see if I can trigger Mirror Sync to run in the background once user has minimized the app.  On open and On close scripts do not run very often under FIAS so strategizing sync will be necessary as user are now use to it "just happening".

Im thrilled.

Luck to all
