Using Filemaker Pro advance with iPad
Just a quick question...iPad will be releeased at the end of the month, my question is would it be possible to install and use file maker pro on iPad? thank you
I very much doubt it as the iPad will be running the iPhone software and not the OSX software although FM Touch may work on the iPad.
It would appear FMTouch will work on the iPad
Yes, FMTouch works with FileMaker 9-11 and with the iPad. The iPad will be great for FileMaker developers as it is about 40% faster than the iPhone and it has quite a bit of screen realestate that will really help.
We'll also be launching and enterprise version on the 17th that will enable FileMaker developers to take their database and instantly convert it into a binary file that can be sold on the iTunes App store.
More information at the FMTouch site and blog.
Filmaker on iPad NO
Bento on iPad
FMTouch on iPad
Thank you for the response.
OK so iPad will not be running filemaker.
I assume that I can import all my data I have in these old versions of fiemakerpro into Bento. Right?
Yes, I believe you can import into Bento.
However, it will depend on your db. Bento is not FileMaker. If you have a simple db, you might be able to.
If I had a choice, I would probably go with FMTouch.
