    Filemaker Go pricing?? Why not make v11 free also?

    rensys99

      We develop Filemaker Pro Apps in version 11 and 12. Why discriminate against iOS users where the app is version 11?

       

      Does anyone know why Filemaker pricing is FREE for Go (v12) but charges for Go (v11).

       

      Making them both free would help elevate Filemaker's platform to millions of mobile users!!!

       

      Just my 2 cents!

          Hi Bob,

           

          Might give you an incentive to move to 12?

           

          This might be the reason.

            They want people out of 11 and earlier versions as soon as possible which is probably one of the main reasons.

              Holy Mackerel! We have applications developed in v6 that worked so well no-one upgraded. Where is Go for v6 diehards?

                Me too... Well actually 5...

                I have tried conversions on one sites databases but they have never worked as fast... So I've never moved them.

                Go 11 should cost... 'cause I paid for mine ;-)

                Making Go 12 free was a stroke of Genius. I'm guessing Apple was a primary source of encouragement for that... when they realised... finally... what a gem they had in FM.

                12 is quite clearly a break from the olde and the new is clearly a superior product because of the connectivity. A mobile app is not much on it's own... but it is a window to a big world and the hope is that FMS can capture that desire for more.
