FileMaker Pro, a long-time favorite for Mac and Windows database developers and Apple’s premier desktop database software, is now available for iOS devices including iPad. FileMaker Go comes in two flavors – one for iPad (priced at $39.99) and one for iPhone/iPodTouch ($19.99). But most important – FileMaker Go is designed as a run-time app for database applications designed on Windows and Mac desktops.
Filemaker provides an end-to-end architecture for building, testing, and deploying business apps to the iOS platform – all without getting approval from Apple. In fact, FileMaker apps can be deployed over email, from website links, through cloud storage services, and via local synching with iTunes. And your database apps can connect to remote data sources as well as databases delivered with the app.
FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go silently collaborate to deliver a comprehensive architecture for developing rapid business solutions that enhance the value and extend the reach of business information to mobile workers.
