I choose FMTouch over Filemaker Go
I debated whether to get FileMaker Go or FMTouch, and research drew me to this one. I love this app. It allows me to use all of my DB when I am out and about. I have it on my Touch, and IPad. I take it to the library so I can see what books I have read when I don’t remember the book name, but only the stories. I have my workouts with me at all times. and all 5 of my databases with me when I need them.
It syncs directly with FileMaker on my desktop machine, no need to email it. I can make and delete records on the touch or ipad.
OK, here are the problems. Any list layouts I have created will show only one record when moved to touch and ipad. To see all records in a list, you must go to Table view. This might be OK, but there is no way to zoom in so the text is very small AND there is no access to change the Table layout either on the desktop machine or the Touch or IPad. This is a huge problem. Further, the table has no space on the left so it looks like the text is running off the left side of the page, disconcerting. My workaround for these problems has been to create a special layout for the IPad and a different special layout for the Touch, but this is time consuming and does not solve the problem of viewing all records in a list in a way you can actually read them.
Other observations: Read the directions carefully, for instance, after syncing, you must hit the Done button twice to get to your database. This can be frustrating for Mac users who are used to having apps work seamlessly and intuitively. Once you are used to the way it does things, it is a pleasure. Tech support has answered my questions but you may have to wait a bit.
