FMGo seems a Bust on iPad
I am relatively new to Filemaker. I purchased FMPro 11 and developed a fairly simple application for legislative tracking. The primary purpose of using FM was to develop a helpful application for my iPad when I am at the legislature to keep track of committee assignments, legislators, and bills.
I have shared the database in FMPro, and I purchased FMGo on the app store. I have been able to access the database remotely via FMGo on the iPad. However, it is painfully slow - painting the screen as I watch. It doesn't have extensive graphics - just a black background with white text.
My biggest current problem is a search feature I have on the app. I have a dropdown where I can select and navigate to specific legislators on one layout or bills on another layout. On the iPad, I tap the dropdown, after a second or two it populates (very slowly), and then the app crashes. In fact, FMGo seems to quit regardless of what I do after connecting within 30 to 40 seconds. I have quit the app. I have restarted the iPad. I even dloaded a trial of FMServer to see if perhaps the problem was related to FMPro. I got the same result on FMServer.
Now I have money invested, as well as time, and basically an unusable app. Additionally, I had planned on sharing it with others, but can no longer do so. Anyone have any suggestions?
