MacBook Pro use OSX, not iOS.
FMP on OSX has stand alone (?) window on desktop, not as MDI (windows in application window) on Windows.
user19752, thanks for the response.!!
actually i thought that OS X and iOS are same, but here i got a idea that that are different type of Apple Operating systems.
now got it, Thanks.
now can you please say that which OS FileMaker version has more features?
Macintosh FileMaker vs Windows FileMaker vs iOS FileMaker.? and why?
There are a few Windows only script steps, there are a few Macintosh only script steps and there are a few iOS functions. Mostly the screen size is different. Sometimes the fonts render slightly differently, so you want to test on the various platforms. You can test your scripts for which platform will work in Script Workspace:

One of the really great things about FM is the fact that it is cross platform. I've been using FM on both Mac and Windows for many years and there really are very few things that are different between the Mac and Windows versions. This is important for developing a solution because it will give your users/customers greater flexibility without having to compromise on functionality for either platform. There are some slight differences in things like the keystrokes to use (eg. Windows use Ctrl key, Mac use Command key).
The major difference I enjoy as a developer with the Mac is not really a FileMaker feature. On the Mac I can have 2, 3 or more instances of FM running at the same time which is really handy. One might have the live database, one might have a testing copy of the same database - or I can be logged into the same database with different user privilege sets for testing functionality for users while still being logged in with a [Full Access] privilege set for development.
