there is a 'file sharing section' (-:
- open iTunes
- Connect Your device (if not WLAN enabeled, connect using the cable)
- Select Your device, the 'sections' part will appear on the left side
-> under 'apps', You will find a list of installed apps, You have to scroll down a bit, to find the 'sharing' section
-> click on FileMaker Go and a list of installed files appears on the right side
-> You can copy files by drag and drop. To delete a file, hit the delete key. Make sure that Your iOS device is not in sleep mode...
Markus Schneider: Thank you! your instructions were more explicit, and therefore more helpful, than what was posted on the Help page; specifically, that the Sharing section was at the bottom in iTunes, so that one has to scroll down.
It's so much easier to use dropbox and it free. You would think Apple would make iTunes easier to use. The way the screen is designed you don't notice that it will scroll down to sharing. I missed it the first time I looked for it.
Now that I know what to do using iTunes for transfer, that's easier than Dropbox: to use Dropbox on my iPad, I have to retrieve the password and log in.
Thank you for the post.
“the Sharing section was at the bottom in iTunes, so that one has to scroll down.”
We are always looking to improve our knowledge base, so our Documentation has updated the knowledge base article Transferring files with FileMaker Go to now read:
“3. Scroll down to access the File Sharing section, and select FileMaker Go from the Apps list.”
Glade the documentation has been updated and that you got it working Eisenberg. I agree it's much easier to use once you know how to use it, but I have to disagree that it is easier than dropbox.
