FileMaker Go for iPhone, iPad, comes to App Store

updated 09:35 am EDT, Tue July 20, 2010

Provides remote access to FileMaker databases

As hinted on Monday, Apple-owned FileMaker has today released FileMaker Go, in the form of separate iPhone and iPad apps. Users can update FileMaker Pro and Server databases over local or remote networks, using either Wi-Fi or 3G connections. Databases can alternately be transferred using iTunes File Sharing, e-mail or the web, including filesharing sites.

A number of limits exist; people cannot, for instance, edit schema, layouts or scripts using Go, and some scripts are simply not supported. While the app can technically open documents from as far back as Pro 7, only v10 and v11 databases hosted by Pro, Pro Advanced, Server or Server Advanced have been tested for remote viewing. The iPhone version of the app is $20, and requires iOS 4; the iPad version is $40, and relies on iOS 3.2.

    Did you feel that

    I have felt a disturbance in the force. As if the entire FileMaker developer community orgasmed at once.

    Seriously this is that big. And it does put the stamp on the iPhone and iPad as serious business tools capable of running desktop class software. This is on par with the release of Visa-calc for the IIe.

    Big deal

    This also means network clients for as low as $20. Previously, you had to buy a full copy of FMPro.

    This is huge, huge, huge

    The ability to store password protected FileMaker databases on your iPhone/iPad is huge!

    runtime

    will this work with runtime solutions or are we yet again considered the basterd children of filemaker? i can't find anything about it.

    Why is the iPad version twice as much?
