[prMac.com] Seattle, WA - The Proof Group and SeedCode announce new licensing options and reviews of fmSpark, the bolt-on communications module for FileMaker Pro. fmSpark lets users create letters, rich emails and labels without going into layout mode or leaving FileMaker. Built completely in FileMaker Pro, fmSpark is unlocked for you to modify and extend.
fmSpark: One Month In
It has been an exciting first month for fmSpark. Since we officially released fmSpark on July 1, we have had a fantastic response.
fmSpark was featured in the FileMaker Developer Conference Keynote as an example of the best FileMaker solutions available. And during DevCon, Proof recorded an fmSpark themed podcast with Adatasol, and a screen cast demo, review, and interview with Matt Petrowsky of FileMaker Magazine.
New Licensing Options:
In addition to single ($129 USD) and workgroup ($549 USD) licenses, we have added site ($999 USD) and developer ($1,499 USD) licenses to broaden developers' opportunities. The feedback from users and our developer peers has been extremely positive and humbling.
There are now fmSpark users in the US, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, New Zealand, France, Belgium and Croatia. The international interest has been tremendous, and highlights the truly universal utility of fmSpark.
