360Works updates SuperContainer for use with FileMaker Go

Latest version of SuperContainer improves compatibility with FileMaker Go, automatically switching to a FileMaker Go-optimized display mode without the need to modify the database.

ATLANTA, Ga., August 16, 2010 – 360Works, a leading FileMaker product developer and innovator, today announced the immediate availability of SuperContainer 2.75, which has been optimized to support FileMaker Go on iPhone and iPad. The update does not require any programming or database changes for existing SuperContainer users.
360Works SuperContainer offers compelling advantages for making documents such as PDF, Word files, QuickTime movies, and graphic images available to mobile users on FileMaker Go:

  • Much faster image display: Instead of sending multi-megabyte images, SuperContainer dynamically generates image thumbnails that are typically smaller than 100 kilobytes. This can lead to significant productivity for mobile users with limited bandwidth. In addition, SuperContainer is multi-threaded, which means that users can immediately working with their data while waiting for images to load in the background.
  • View PDF files, Microsoft Office documents, and QuickTime movies: Regular container fields in FileMaker Go only show you an icon for these file types. SuperContainer can display the contents of these documents, either inside a web viewer or in a full-screen display, without ever leaving the FileMaker Go application.
  • Smaller database sizes: To use regular container fields with FileMaker Go, your container data must be embedded inside your FileMaker database. This can lead to very large file sizes, which are difficult to transfer and back up. SuperContainer stores all data as individual files outside your main FileMaker database. This keeps your FileMaker files trim and lightweight.

SuperContainer is immediately available for download or purchase starting at $195 for up to 10 users from 360works.com/supercontainer.
