FileMaker Go Sharing

FileMaker Go runs on the iPhone and iPad. In many respects it is very similar to FileMaker Pro in the way it connects. There is a difference is capabilities however. You cannot design your database using Go but there are several things you can do with Go you cannot do with FileMaker Pro (Desktop).

  • Take photos straight into your database
  • Scan bar codes
  • Save signatures
  • Get the GPS coordinates of the device
  • Scan for nearby iBeacons

Unlike FileMaker Pro - FileMaker Go for both the iPad and iPhone are free on the App store. Instead of charging for the software direct FileMaker make a connection charge for each copy of Go that connects to a FileMaker server. This is why we too need to charge for these connections.
