  • More extensive support for iPad and iPhone features:
    • Automatically collect data with the new sensor support feature
    • Notifications even when your app is not running
    • Auto-complete
    • Keyboard shortcuts
    • Drag and drop
  • Easier administration of FileMaker servers
  • Master-detail layouts allow you to create a combined list and detail view with no programming required
  • Notifications on an iPad or iPhone
  • There is no more FileMaker Pro. Everyone gets a copy of FileMaker Pro Advanced at no extra cost. This means everyone gets the tools of a professional developer
  • All licences include the entire FileMaker product line. You just pay according to the number of seats you need and how long you want the licence to run
  • The FileMaker Data API takes integration to a whole new level. Your other IT systems can exchange data with FileMaker Pro using modern, industry standard methods. You get your data anywhere and any way you like it
