    Running external app's on Ipad



      Running external app's on Ipad



      when using the container field it is possible to use a voice recording or video and picture etc. with the Ipad.

      Very nice, but i would like to use f.e. dragon dictation or any other speech recognition software to make a note. Is this possible ?

      Same question for a sketching app.

      Another question i have is regarding google maps, is it possible using FM to grab the location (like street names) from the google maps in text so i can use it in a FM table ?

      Is it possible to write (or let someone write) Ipad commands that can be used within FM go ? (sort of shell functions)

      thx !

          Thank you for your post.

          At this time, FileMaker Go cannot access other applications.

          If you have an iPhone 4S, you can use voice dictation.  See Knowledge Base Article #10073 for more information:


          You can use the Location function in FileMaker Go 12, as this returns the current latitude and longitude, obtained via GPS, cellular network or Wi-Fi.  You can also use a Web Viewer to display a location in Google Maps.

          FileMaker Go will not accept command lines.
