Latest information about B4i: https://www.b4x.com/b4i.html


I'm happy to release B4i - a development tool for native iOS applications.

B4i follows the same concepts of B4A and B4J and provides a simple yet powerful rapid application development tool for iOS applications.


- Apple developer account (costs $99 per year).
- An iOS device running iOS 7+.

The compilation process requires a Mac computer. You can either use a local Mac computer or use our Hosted Mac Builder service (currently costs $26 per year).


- Tutorials: http://www.b4x.com/android/forum/forums/ios-tutorials.63/
You should start with the following three tutorials:
Creating a certificate and provisioning profile
Installing B4i-Bridge and debugging first app

Developers who use a local Mac: Local Mac Builder Installation

- Formal documentation: http://www.b4x.com/b4i/documentation.html


B4i can be purchased here: www.b4x.com/b4i
It is now sold for a special introductory price of $99.
B4i includes two years of free upgrades.

Hosted Mac Builder

The builder service allows you to develop iOS applications without a Mac computer.
All of the development steps can be done with the builder service except of the final step which is uploading the application to Apple App Store. This step requires a Mac or a service such as MacInCloud.
Note that the builder is currently limited to projects of up to 15mb.

If you are less experienced with Mac OS then it is recommended to start with the hosted builder and later switch to the local Mac.

I want to thank the beta testers for their invaluable help. Thank you!!!

Screenshots & Videos

Most of the tutorials include videos. Here is one for example: http://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/bouncing-smilay-drawing-with-canvas.46154/
Make sure to click on the small gear button and set it to HD.


Q: Is there a trial version?
A: Currently no. However we offer 30 days of full money back guarantee (including the Mac builder service).

Q: Can I reuse my B4A code?
A: A large portion of the code can be reused. See this thread: http://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4a-to-b4i.46793

Q: Can I use a local Mac if I purchase the hosted builder option?
A: Yes.

Q: Is there any app created with B4i in the AppStore?
A: Yes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/b4i-coordinates-calculator/id915366768?mt=8
B4i creates regular native iOS applications (with both 32 bit and 64 bit support).

Q: Can I purchase B4i together with B4A?
A: Yes. You can purchase B4A Enterprise + B4i + hosted Mac builder service for $189:

Q: I've already bought B4i. How can I purchase the hosted builder?
A: It costs $26 (per year): https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=CX4ZA7CGH4H44
