FileMaker has announced FileMaker Go for iPhone and iPad. This new application, now available from the iTunes App Store, allows users to view, edit and search for information in FileMaker databases on these devices. Available as two separate apps for iPhone or iPad, FileMaker Go provides access to databases created with FileMaker Pro and hosted on FileMaker Server or FileMaker Pro. FileMaker Go can access databases residing on a Mac or PC using a local wireless network or over the Internet via Wi-Fi or 3G. All changes are instantly updated in the hosted file.
FileMaker Go users can also copy databases between their desktop or laptop computers and FileMaker Go via File Sharing in iTunes. Databases may also be downloaded by email, popular file sharing sites, or the web.
"Imagine being able to check inventory levels, update the status of a project or add a new customer contact and share it with your remote sales team – just a few of the many workgroup tasks made easy with FileMaker Go for iPhone or iPad,” said Ryan Rosenberg, vice president of marketing and services for FileMaker, Inc.
FileMaker Go allows to add, modify, or delete data; find, sort and navigate through records; open new windows; and switch between layouts. Many FileMaker Pro features are supported on FileMaker Go, including Tab controls, Quick Find, Web Viewers, External SQL Data Sources, containers, portals and even most scripts. The new Apps work in both portrait and landscape views, automatically switching as necessary. FileMaker Go also allows users to search, modify and sort records using touch gestures.
FileMaker Go is available now from the App Store. FileMaker Go for iPhone and iPod touch (running IOS 4) is $19.99 and FileMaker Go for iPad (running IOS 3.2) is $39.99.
