September 20, 2007 in FileMaker (E)
[prMac.com] Richmond, VA â€" September 19, 2007 â€" FMWebschool, Inc. released an online movie demonstrating the power of FileMaker database technology on the Apple iPhone.
The iPhone is a perfect medium to showcase database driven websites. FMWebschool has also created an iPhone Dreamweaver extension that connects to FileMaker. Enabling you to design and deploy exciting FileMaker driven websites on your iPhone.
FileMaker driven sites with iPhone are extremely powerful. Visitors to your site can search live data, edit records, delete records, sort found sets, view images, email as well as view google maps. Since the data viewed on the iPhone is dynamic, changes made such as editing a record are immediately changed in the FileMaker database as well.
This is an exciting time for businesses. Imagine a flower delivery company where the driver can simply look at his iPhone, see all of the deliveries for the day, and simply click on a Google map link to get directions. Since the delivery drivers phone is connected to their main database, he can check for any updates prior to the delivery, and can mark the delivery as complete once he has made the deliveries. The data is automatically updated in the database. Another scenario would be a work order database.
The combination of FileMaker and iPhone unleashes an unlimited amount of opportunities. FMWebschool has released an online movie demonstrating a FileMaker contact solution on the iPhone and the new Dreamweaver iPhone development module. Using these two great resources together you can develop a robust online solution in very little time. The demonstration uses the free online iPhoney emulator available from marketcircle.com.
