Enterprise Mobility: FileMaker Go Makes Databases Mobile
FileMaker Go 1.1 is a useful mobile database client that allows users to create records from PDFs, lets users share databases via e-mail, and supports scripted import of records from existing FileMaker databases. Although it lacks database creation and modification features, one can easily edit individual database records or add images to records. FileMaker Go comes in separate versions for iPad and iPhone that are optimized for each platform; it can connect to databases hosted on File Maker releases 10 and 11, and it works with databases created in FileMaker 7 or later. The External SQL Sources features of FileMaker Pro and File Maker Server can be used to build a bridge to data accessible via ODBC. FileMaker Go is currently available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish, and databases created in other language versions of FileMaker Pro appear in their native language. Databases can be copied to FileMaker Go for use when a hosted database is unavailable.
