Accessing Databases on FileMaker Go
There are three convenient ways to access your FileMaker Pro databases on your iPad and iPhone using FileMaker Go:
Connect to databases hosted on FileMaker Server or FileMaker Pro via a local wireless network or over Wi-Fi or 3G. All changes are instantly updated in the hosted file. This makes it easy to share information with a team.
Copy your databases between your desktop or laptop and FileMaker Go using File Sharing in iTunes. This is ideal for accessing single-user databases (Note: While copying files is supported, synchronization is not).
Email databases to others or download databases sent to you directly from FileMaker Go.
I was amazed. FileMaker Go runs my database exactly like my desktop. There's no performance difference at all. It just works.
Having the native application on the iPhone and iPad gives you a much richer experience. We have some graphics, some large text fields. They all display perfectly on the iPad with FileMaker Go.
Setting up FileMaker Go was virtually effortless. I did everything I needed to do on the desktop version and just copied it over to FileMaker Go on the iPhone.
