24U Software has launched Xgode (https://www.24usoftware.com/Xgode/), a new online service that lets FileMaker developers build a native app for the iPhone and iPad from a FileMaker Go app, purportedly in less than 15 minutes.
With the service, developers can turn a custom app based on the FileMaker Platform into a native app without having to learn or use any development tools other than FileMaker Pro Advanced according to the folks at 24U Software. The only things that are needed are a valid Apple Developer account, a custom FileMaker app, and graphics for the app’s icon.
Xgode is available for $9 for an individual build, $19 for monthly subscription, and $199 for an annual subscription. Subscriptions allow for unlimited number of builds during the subscription period. A simple Tic Tac Toe game app created with FileMaker Pro Advanced is available as a free download for those who want to try the service out.
