FileMaker Go adds AirPrint, digital signature capture


FileMaker has released an update for FileMaker Go, its iOS app for mobile access to FileMaker Pro databases. The new version adds support for printing FileMaker data via AirPrint and viewing and editing charts created with FileMaker Pro 11 using chart data from FileMaker or passed through from SQL database sources. FileMaker Go now also provides the ability to capture and save digital signatures directly on an iOS device, making it easy to sign contracts and invoices; signed documents can be exported to a computer or uploaded to centralized FileMaker Server databases. Other new features in the update include enhanced PDF creation for sending print-ready reports, notifications of record lock conflicts and the ability to open hidden files. FileMaker Go is available from the App Store in two separate versions: FileMaker Go for iPhone ($20) and FileMaker Go for iPad ($40). Both require iOS 4.2 or later. FileMaker is also offering new FileMaker Go customers 50% off the purchase price of FileMaker Pro 11 until June 17, 2011.
