Designing Custom Apps for iOS – Best Practices

by Yann Liqueur-Salzedo

Even though this video dates back to DevCon July, 2016…this is still one of our favorite iOS Design Videos. With the  iOS App SDK, we can produce native iOS apps from our FileMaker files. However, to provide the best user experience, it’s important to design specifically for iOS, understanding its aesthetic and constraints.
