Rave reviews
Here's what customers and the media are saying about FileMaker Go 12:

"Taking a leaf from the Apple design page, a key focus has been to make the process as simple as possible not only for the end user, but for the administrator. Filemaker basically operates as an additional layer over existing IT systems from which the software offer 'push updates'. This means workers on the shop floor will be able to carry iPads that update wirelessly on the go - ideal for conference centres and the like where floor plans can change day to day. Workers will no longer need to keep reporting back to the main office after each shift to update their workplans."
- Allan Swann, CBR

"New tools make pixel-accurate layout creation so much faster that I don't know how I managed before. Not having to go into a graphics app to make gradients or custom shapes is wonderful. What's more, the new CSS-based layout themes open up a host of opportunities - we're already building customisation tools that will dramatically change the way we approach interface design. The new "Insert from URL" script step is going to change things big time too, allowing us to get things back from the web so easily. And what about scripted plug in installation without a restart or the wonderful new container options that will make the secure management of documents and media a snap? A whole new world of amazing possibilities just opened up."
- Christopher Manton, Director, Babelfix Ltd
