If you’ve used Go or WebDirect you’ll know that FileMaker can pass data back and forth to your client solutions seamlessly, as long as you have an internet connection. Which is great. However, you don’t always have that connection, and even if you do, being always connected is quite demanding on the server and limits the users you can have at any one time.
LiveCode for FM creates apps which happily go on working even when there is no connection, by saving the data locally, and when it can get a connection again, syncing the data up to your server to save the data and check for anything new that has arrived while it was offline. No button to press, no interruption to the user, just a smooth sync experience once the connection comes back. Neat, right?
