One of the major benefits of using FireMonkey is the ability to create applications for both Windows and Mac OS X from one codebase. When you create a Mac OS X application, you need to use Appmethod on the Windows operating system, and target your application to Mac OS X. You can debug your applications running on Mac OS X, and then package them for Mac OS X. To debug and deploy an application to Mac OS X, you need to have the Platform Assistant installed on your Mac OS X machine.
