Announcing NEW FileMaker Go for iPhone and FileMaker Go for iPad. View, edit and search your FileMaker Pro records on  your iPhone and iPad with FileMaker Go.   Happy first birthday Bento Template Exchange

Whether you’re checking inventory in the warehouse, managing event registration on-site, or updating project status while travelling, you can do it all while you’re on the go with FileMaker Go!

Easily use your existing databases, or create customised databases for your iPhone and iPad using FileMaker Pro. Work with data just like you would on FileMaker Pro—Add, modify, or delete information. Find, sort, and navigate through records. Switch between layouts and display data in familiar Form, Table, and List views. Plus your favourite FileMaker Pro features such as portals, Tab Controls, Quick Find, Web Viewers, External SQL Data Sources, and most scripts work as you’d expect on FileMaker Go.

With FileMaker Go easily connect to databases hosted on FileMaker Server or FileMaker Pro via a local wireless network or over the Internet using Wi-Fi or 3G. All changes are instantly updated in the hosted file. This makes it easy to share data with others back at the office or out in the field.


If you don’t have access to FileMaker Server or an Internet connection while you’re on the go, simply copy your solutions directly onto FileMaker Go for iPhone or FileMaker Go for iPad using File Sharing in iTunes. If you make updates to the file, copy the database back to your desktop or laptop via iTunes. This is ideal for single-user databases. You can also copy your databases to FileMaker Go by downloading the file from email, popular file sharing sites, or the web.

With FileMaker Go for iPhone and FileMaker Go for iPad you can access your FileMaker Pro information anywhere you go.
