FileMaker Go in the News FileMaker Go has been receiving some great local media attention since its launch in July and we wanted to share some of the highlights:

Australian Macworld 4 Mice Macworld awarded FileMaker Go 4 out of 5 mice stating: "FileMaker Go can store databases directly on the device, but more compelling is its ability to access databases hosted by FileMaker Pro or FileMaker Server. With real-time access one can, in theory, use a database from any place with Wi-Fi or 3G network coverage."
New Zealand HeraldMark Webster called FileMaker Go: "A very serious new iPad (and iPhone) app" in his recent blog post 'How useful is an iPad?' on NZ Herald which explored the many uses of the iPad device. "FileMaker Go gives end users full access to databases while away from their computers. It effectively makes FileMaker extensible into the iDevice realm—it's not a development platform, but a viewer that lets you modify some of the data."
