Build breakthrough apps for your employees.

Learn about in-house app development for iPhone and iPad.

With iOS you can deliver content and information in simple, yet powerful new ways to help your employees be more productive. Leveraging the native iOS SDK, your development team will be building apps using some of the same tools, frameworks, and technologies that Apple engineers use to build the apps that ship with every iPhone and iPad. This enables you to create apps that look, feel, and respond to your users elegantly and with maximum efficiency. Native applications can take full advantage of device-specific hardware capabilities such as the accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, camera, microphone, or even third-party accessories through the 30-pin dock connector or Bluetooth. Native applications can also use frameworks to access data from on‑board applications such as Contacts, Calendar, Mail, or Maps.
