This joins the existing plugin already available for Mac users of FileMaker. LiveCode for FM brings native app building functionality into FileMaker. Drag-drop to create a full user interface experience, include rich graphics and multimedia, write code in English to crunch data from any source, or integrate your FileMaker app with the operating system or web APIs. Access more features, build better apps, win more clients - the combination of LiveCode and FileMaker brings infinite possibilities to your FileMaker apps.

Dropbox integration
This latest version also offers a brand new ready made component, Dropbox integration. Users can now work with Dropbox directly in FileMaker, Upload your database automatically to DropBox as a backup, Include the upload feature in your client’s database to help provide technical support, and more. Use this component as a starter template to access other web services. The Dropbox component makes use of LiveCode's OAuth2 library to authorize the application's access to user data. It shows how you can access web services in LiveCode and provides functions for uploading and downloading files to your Dropbox account. The library includes a dialog for selecting files and folders in the user's Dropbox account.
