Full FileMaker client coming to iPhone – FileMaker 11 coming soon

Despite increased security, a naughty little bird reports from inside the FileMaker conference this weekend giving us a few details about FileMaker 11, as well as news that we can expect a full FileMaker client for the iPhone to drop very soon.

“filemaker for iphone is very near. im at the conference right now. They seem to be very careful n this news and we all had to sign for it too… crazy unlike other filemakers.. also filemaker 11 as well. Some of the new features include grouped layouts, more triggers, and graphs built into filemaker… kinda like bento but much more powerful… we didnt get to play with it yet though… we will see it again I believe the end of conference”

We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.

    Maybe I’m missing it, but where in that blurb does it say anything about a full Filemaker app for the iPhone?

    i agree w larry. “full version” would mean relational, all UI widgets, design not just runtime capabilities and so on. “filemaker for iphone” could be just as weak as fielmaker mobile was: limited widgets, limited sync (to standalone, not to hosted solution), limited limited limited. i’ll stick with servoy, this rumor about fm 11 puts me to sleep

    Now that FileMaker 11 is out, I figured I’d check out this article again. Well, the included graph support proved to be right on, however, I’m gonna assume that’s a lucky guess since we haven’t seen an iPhone client. I suspect, though, that FileMaker probably will have to develop an iPad client at some point if it catches on in business. A Bento client for the iPad would be nice, too. (You could probably have an actual layout, as opposed to a scrolling list.)

    Totally Daniel, an iPad version is a requirement at this point

  5. You may want to check out FMTouch for FileMaker. It supports FileMaker with syncing via wifi, filemaker databases served remotely, and databases hosted on filemaker server.

    It also supports FileMaker 9-11 and has already been tested on the iPad. You can see screenshots of it running on the iPad at the FMTouch website.

    Also the enterprise license allows Filemaker developers to instantly convert their databases into applications that can be sold on the iTunes App store.

    Hope this is helpful.
