Looks like cutting the price to zero was a good idea: FileMaker said today that its new release of FileMaker Go 12 for iPhone and iPad has already been downloaded more than 100,000 times in its first week of availability.
FileMaker Go 12 is the latest iteration of the software that lets iOS device users take custom databases with them created by FileMaker Pro 12, the newest version of the flagship database software for Mac and Windows.
FileMaker Go 11 remains available for purchase on the App Store – $19.99 for the iPhone version and $39.99 for the iPad version – to help maintain compatibility with installations that haven’t upgraded to FileMaker Pro 12 yet.
A 30-day trial version of FileMaker Pro 12 is available from FileMaker’s Web site, if you want to kick the tires and give it a spin. Prices start at $299, and upgrade prices are available for users of previous versions.
