Emailed zipped FM12 DB not always opened by FM GO 12

For some reason, certain users (including me) find that zipped FM 12 databases emailed to an iPad are sometimes unzipped and opened by FM GO 12, but sometimes are not. What would be behind this? Is this an iPad issue...and iPad setting issue?

 

Also, it appears that only databases emailled with the "fmp12" and "fmpur" file name extensions are automatically opened by FM GO 12. Is this the intended behavior or have I missed something?

 

Both of these issure are important - for obvious reasons. Most importantly, being able to email a zipped database for automatic opening by FM GO 12 is the best way to deliver a product, providing a fast (iTunes-free) installation.

 

Thanks...
