Filemaker Announces Filemaker Go For iPhone

Filemaker, the Mac database maker has announced an iPhone and iPad native client called Filemaker Go.

The app will not allow database creation, but will provide users a way to view and edit databases while on the go. Filemaker Go will run most Filemaker Pro databases created in version 7 or later.

It’s a hefty task to cram all the power and capability of Filemaker into an iPhone or even an iPad, but the team thinks they’ve done a good job.

At $20 and $40 for iPhone and iPad respectively, it’s not exactly dirt cheap, but users of the Filemaker app are normally a dedicated, fanatical bunch, and there’s little doubt the software will be excellently done.

Check it out for iPhone here, and for iPad here (iTunes links).
