Session Code: MOB006


The location functions for FileMaker Go enable users with iOS devices to know where they are; but there's more to building rich, location-aware applications than just knowing where you are. This session covers using the location functions, but also several other location-oriented techniques such as determining distance and direction between locations, geocoding, location-based finds, and integrating with iOS navigation apps.
