Your fastest path to Windows, OS X, iOS and Android
With FireMonkey, you don't have to maintain separate development projects to deliver your app natively for multiple devices (PCs, tablets and smartphones) on multiple platforms (Windows, OS X, iOS and Android). FireMonkey makes it easy to build script-free, true native apps that expose the full range of device capabilities and performance in the underlying devices.

Deliver apps with more power and performance
No matter how dazzling the visuals are, if the user experience is sluggish or unresponsive, it all falls down. FireMonkey apps leverage the full power of today's hardware with native CPU performance and GPU powered visuals on PCs, tablets and mobile devices. With FireMonkey, you get performance and responsiveness that you simply can't get from RIA platforms, virtual machine runtimes, or dynamic languages.
Simply amazing, a fast IDE, along with the power and simplicity of the Delphi language, supporting the latest technologies on the market, including Windows 8 and OS X.
