Syncing your FileMaker solution – Overview

LCFM Native allows you to sync your data from your Android app back to your FileMaker database and vice versa. If you don’t want to sync, you don’t need to do this, your app will work without changes. However LCFM Native comes with the ability for your app to run offline and for that, you might need to make minor changes to your solution to make it work.
