FileMaker Go for iOS Adds Photo Support, Converts Records to PDF

FileMaker Go for iOS has been updated with the ability to add photos, convert records to PDF, save a copy of the database, and more.

View, edit and search your FileMaker Pro 7 (or later) records on your iPad with FileMaker Go. Whether you’re checking inventory in the warehouse, managing event registration on-site, or updating project status while traveling, you can do it all while you’re on the go. Build your databases using FileMaker Pro and then remotely access your data with FileMaker Go. Your existing FileMaker Pro layouts look amazing on the large iPad display screen – no modification is necessary for most solutions.

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 favorite FileMaker Pro features such as portals, Tab Controls, Quick Find, Web Viewers, 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 will not have an Internet connection while you’re on the go, simply copy your solutions directly onto FileMaker Go for iPad using File Sharing in iTunes. View conference schedules, organize photos, manage contacts, and more. 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 iPad you can access your FileMaker Pro information anywhere you go.

FileMaker Go is also available separately for iPhone.

What's New In This Version:
● Add photos to the database and email them as an attachment
● Convert records to PDF and email file from the database
● Save a copy of a database and email it as an attachment
● Import records from FileMaker Pro databases to FileMaker Go via scripts
● Be able to require users to re-log onto FileMaker Go after iPad hibernates
● Solves compatibility issues running on iPad

You can purchase FileMaker Go for iPad from the App Store for $39.99.
