      Networked Database With iPhone/iPad Support

      Post

      Hello, first post here:

      I would like to have a pretty basic but networked database that simply includes the following:

       

      • A list of companies with a number of fields
      • A list of people related to the one or more companies

       

      • Every database can do this, but where it becomes tricky is these points:
      • People are using Windows and Macs to input content
      • Enabling quick access on iPad and/or iPhone with appropriate views for the size of screen (Ideally updating on devices)
      • Keeping cost low

      It seems that the ideal solution would be one where Web read/write access is possible but there also could be iPhone/iPad apps that could talk to the server.

      FileMaker would be an obvious choice, but I don't believe Bento can interface appropriately and FMTouch seems to require syncing, which concerns me.  Has anyone implemented something similar?  Thoughts?  Thanks!
