FileMaker on Tuesday announced that customers who purchase FileMaker Go can get the desktop version, FileMaker Pro 11, for half off – $149 instead of $299.
[ad#Google Adsense 300x250 in story]FileMaker Go is FileMaker’s database software for iOS devices. It’s available in a $19.99 version for the iPhone and a $39.99 version for the iPad. Beginning Tuesday and running through June 17, 2011, customers who buy FileMaker Go for iPad or iPhone will be able to download FileMaker Pro 11 from the online FileMaker Store at a 50 percent discount. FileMaker Go lets iOS device users work remotely with FileMaker Pro databases. The company cites Customer Relationship Management (CRM), on-site event registration, inventory management and project tracking as practical examples of how FileMaker Go works in the field.
The software comes with 30 built-in “Starter Solutions” but isn’t limited just to those; users can create their own FileMaker Go projects depending on their needs.
FileMaker Go works with FileMaker Pro 7 and later. iOS system requirements call for an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 4 (for FileMaker Go for iPhone) or an iPad running iOS 3.2 (for FileMaker Go for iPad).
