Develop Applications for OS X
with C++Builder and the FM Application Platform
Building your app in C++Builder eliminates the need to engage in multiple development efforts for the same application on multiple devices. This means you get to market faster on multiple devices for the first release – and every release after that – while keeping costs down.
Create your applications once and click to compile to iOS, Windows & OS X
