FileMaker Business Alliance
Get started on tailoring layouts for FileMaker Go with our free FileMaker Go Toolkit!
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 database can be accessed, your users will have much better experience if they are interacting with an interface that has been tailored for the device. For example, this means objects that are sized properly to select with a finger rather than a mouse, and layouts configured to work well in both portrait and landscape orientation.
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:
FileMaker Go Toolkit v1.01 (zip file) (1 MB)
FileMaker Go Toolkit v1.01 (unzipped version) (3 MB)
FileMaker Go Toolkit v1.01 - Japanese (zip file) (1 MB)
FileMaker Go Toolkit v1.01 - Japanese (unzipped version) (2.8 MB)
Properly designing your layouts is just one aspect of tailoring a database for use on an iPad or iPhone. In addition, you need to ensure that your scripts use only mobile compatible script steps, and that everything performs adequately over the network connections available to your users.
