FileMaker Rocks On The Apple iPhone
Richmond, VA – September 19, 2007 – FMWebschool, Inc. released an online
movie demonstrating the power of FileMaker database technology on the Apple
The iPhone is a perfect medium to showcase database driven websites.
FMWebschool has also created an iPhone Dreamweaver extension that connects
to FileMaker. Enabling you to design and deploy exciting FileMaker driven
websites on your iPhone.
FileMaker driven sites with iPhone are extremely powerful. Visitors to your
site can search live data, edit records, delete records, sort found sets,
view images, email as well as view google maps. Since the data viewed on
the iPhone is dynamic, changes made such as editing a record are
immediately changed in the FileMaker database as well.
This is an exciting time for businesses. Imagine a flower delivery company
where the driver can simply look at his iPhone, see all of the deliveries
for the day, and simply click on a Google map link to get directions. Since
the delivery drivers phone is connected to their main database, he can
check for any updates prior to the delivery, and can mark the delivery as
complete once he has made the deliveries. The data is automatically updated
in the database. Another scenario would be a work order database.
The combination of FileMaker and iPhone unleashes an unlimited amount of
opportunities. FMWebschool has released an online movie demonstrating a
FileMaker contact solution on the iPhone and the new Dreamweaver iPhone
development module. Using these two great resources together you can
develop a robust online solution in very little time. The demonstration
uses the free online iPhoney emulator available from marketcircle.com.
