Best practice for multiple devices
Hello all ,
I have a FM 11 DB that I have since converted to FM12 and it seems to be working well on my Mac. One of the reasons I upgraded to FM 12 was to make use of the new "touch" layouts for iOS devices. My attempts at designing iPad/iPhone layouts were clunky at best. In its present form I have basically three sets of layouts, one for Mac, iPhone and iPad.
Because this DB is used most often on iOS devices, I am wondering if there is a "best practice" for ensuring the appropriate layout is selected for each device. When using the iPhone for example, it is easier to have all fields in a single vertical row whereas on the iPad there is ample room for multiple rows of data to be seen and manupulated.
Should I use FMGo12? Is there a way to only load iPhone layouts to my iPhone and iPad layouts to my iPad when syncing FMGo via iTunes? Is there a way to automatically detect which device is in use and display the appropriate layout based on this information?
I have considered IWP but there are times that my mobile device wil be out of WiFi range and I do not have GoZync or anything similar.
