I now have FMGo14 and FMGo15 on my iPad. The icon for each is slightly different (different gradent direction). Where do I go to determine which version is which?
The icon that is pink at the top is 14. The icon that's purple at the top is 15.
In addition to Get ( ApplicationVersion ), you can view the version inside the app using the little pull-down in the upper left hand corner and choosing "Settings". (This only works if you have a database open.)

Get(ApplicationVersion) will return version after Go or Go_iPad
Thanks Mike, that was what I was looking for. I didn't want to write a script just to tell what version I was using.
You can also tap the gear icon and select help. The window that opens contains the version title.
We have this as well, for us it's an issue!
- the gear icon goes to the website, fine if one has net
- the web site does not show the version number on the start page
- the color difference of the icon is not a thing that people (end users) recognize clearly
we have had this issue a few days back when a user called for support because his solution crashed all the time after updating to iOS10. He wasn't even able to enter some text in a field
we got a test iPad (same as the customer, iPad Air2) and we were not able to reproduce. Customer was _not_ able to tell what version he was running, he just said 'should be the latest)
- we asked the customer to delete FMGo and reload it from the app-store
-> reaction: 'Uhh... looks a bit different than the one before...) -> he was running Go14
(btw. We were not able to have Go14 on iOS10 to crash with that solution either)
would be really helpfull to have the version-number available somewhere directly in FMGo. We added now a line in the startup script to get the version numer and store that in a variable....
For just such situations, I’ve programmed a popover with various important information about the solution:
- Device version
- iOS version
- FM Go version
- Solution version
- User priv set
- User account name
The user can tap a popover button that says “Diagnostics” to get all that information. Screen shots are good (assuming you can teach the user how to do that).
yes! We added that info into a variable while running the startup-script, but it would be fine to get that info in general, means a user creates hisher own 'app' and calls us later for support
