FileMaker Business Alliance
Get started on tailoring layouts for FileMaker Go with our free FileMaker Go Toolkit! -- version 3 completely rewritten for FileMaker 14.
The FileMaker Go application for the iPhone and iPad provides real-time access to your FileMaker databases directly from your mobile device. While any existing FileMaker layout can work on mobile, your users will have much better experience if they work with an interface tailored for them. This includes objects sized properly for fingers, layouts that work well in both portrait and landscape orientation, and as much content available on the screen with menus and other controls in menus.
To help developers learn how to work in this new medium, Soliant Consulting is pleased to offer a FileMaker Go Toolkit for free download. It contains a wealth of assets and examples for developing FileMaker Go interfaces, including:
Properly designing layouts is just one aspect of optimizing for an iPad or iPhone. In addition, you need to ensure that scripts use only mobile compatible steps and that everything performs adequately over the network connections available to your users. Learn more about how Soliant can help you prepare your systems to use FileMaker Go.
(Please note that we have a Japanese version (1.02) of the Toolkit available; we hope to have the updated version localized soon. Thank you!)
