Alternative to tooltips for iOS

I've used tooltips on Mac and Windows to present results of a plethora of calculations and additional data all over a solution I've developed.

 

Tooltips have been great at adding a dynamic layer of information without wasting screen real estate.

 

Since tooltips don't work on iOS devices in Filemaker Go I've been thinking how I can present a similar layer of information without complicating either use or development/maintenance.

 

This could be done using pop-overs, but I don't see that being very practical both in terms of development and maintenance of layouts.

 

Any ideas/discussion around this would be appreciated.
