FileMaker Go is a lifesaver for many of you, bringing mobility to your FileMaker solutions. However, the experience is not always what your customer expects.
Firstly, they have to install FMGo, then your app, rather than being able to install your app directly from the App Store. Secondly, if you connect your solution back to FileMaker, Go requires always good connectivity to run your app. Frozen is not a good look for your app. Thirdly, FileMaker Go apps can become corrupted if your user’s device crashes, due to the way they are structured. Finally, if you need to access features that iOS itself supports but FMGo does not, you can’t – or not without using the iOS SDK and a frighteningly complex process to create or install your plugin.
LiveCode for FM solves all these problems. You can create a true iOS app store app, which has access to the native operating system and carries on delighting your users even when they are offline. LiveCode for FM is structured so that if your device crashes only the minimum amount of unsaved data will be lost, the app will not become corrupted. We support a broader range of OS features out of the box and can easily add support for more – just ask.
