FileMaker iOS App SDK – that’s a mouthful. What exactly does it mean?
It means you, as a developer, have a powerful new way to share your FileMaker solution to an iOS device– your iPhone or iPad, for example.
It means vertical market solutions that open a the touch of a button, rather than having to open FileMaker Go first, then navigate to a host or a file location, then opening the file. So, just like you open an email or photo app, you now open open a custom FileMaker solution that uses FileMaker Go to run the process. It’s just easier for the user.

It also means easier deployment, using mobile device management (MDM) software.
