FileMaker Go

By Daniel Wood, 17 October 2011

If you are already using iPads or iPhones in your business or you can see just how handy they might be, then read on. If you'™re one of our many customers that uses FileMaker, then this is for you too.

A little over a year ago FileMaker released a purpose built mobile version of their database application: FileMaker Go.

With FileMaker Go, you can access your existing database system on your mobile device from wherever you are - be it in the office, on site, or on the road. All you need is an internet connection and you are ready to rock and roll.

FileMaker Go is packed with exciting features, such as:

  • Multi-touch gestures native to iPhone and iPad.
  • Capture and add signatures to your database right from the iPhone and iPad.
  • Add photos from your device to your database directly.
  • Has the same functionality as FileMaker Pro (i.e. add, modify, delete, sort records).
  • Convert data to a PDF and email it directly from your device.
  • Print your reports and forms using AirPrint in the latest iOS.

Most databases will run fine on FileMaker Go without any modifications. However, given the differences between the iPhone, iPad and a regular desktop computer, it is sometimes a good idea to provide different interfaces to your database specific to the mobile device you'™re using.

Digital Fusion has done a number of projects with FileMaker Go, and know what it takes to produce appealing and easy to use interfaces for the iPhone and iPad. If you think FileMaker Go sounds like the way forward for you, then lets talk!
