Where Am I? Using FileMaker Go 12 to track your Location June 28, 2012
FileMaker Go 12 has a new mobile function called “Location()”. Location() only works on Mobile devices at this point, so to test this demo file you need to have FileMaker Go 12 installed on your iOS device, an iPhone, iPod or iPad. FileMaker Go is free and available here for the iPhone and here for the iPad.
Once you have one of these apps installed, then click this link in Mobile Safari on your device to download the ‘Where Am I?’ FileMaker 12 Demo file. If you want to download the Demo file on your desktop computer to further dissect scripts in the file, simply right-click the link and select ‘Download linked file’, or transfer it using iTunes.
Thanks everyone for your responses. I purchased FM11 6 months or so ago and ended up not using it as it was just too complicated for my needs. Felt like I'd wasted a chunk of change on it though. Now I see there's an FM12 which looks like it has some features which make creating a DB for the iphone much easier, yet the upgrade costs like $160. Again a significant investment and no guarantee I'll find it any easier to use. I don't need any of the relational features and just need a simple 5 field database to store some surgical data. Bento is OK but not great on the formatting of the info. Any suggestions? Should I just quit complaining and use Bento or is there something (another app) sort of in between FM and Bento? Or maybe with FM12 it's so easy now to create a simple database that it's worth the upgrade price. Or maybe someone saw a special deal on FM12 upgrade for $30.
The iPhone Configuration Utility lets you easily create, encrypt, and install configuration profiles, track and install provisioning profiles and authorized applications, and capture device information including console logs.
One of the features of the iPhone Configuration Utility is the ability to create "Web Clips." A "Web Clip" allows you to add web clips (URLs) to the home screen of your iOS device in the form of icons for easy access. The iPhone Configuration Utility also allows you to specify the name and graphic used for the icon when creating a Web Clip.
FileMaker Go (and FileMaker Pro) support the ability to open a FileMaker Pro database using a URL. Therefore, a Web Clip can be used to open a FileMaker Pro file directly from the home screen of your iOS device. Besides opening a local or shared FileMaker Pro using a Web Clip, you can also specify:
- A script to run in the file
- Pass a script parameter
- Define local variables
The iPhone Configuration Utility is provided by Apple and can be download for free from Apple's knowledge base:
