Retailers make mistakes from time to time, but they can usually be worked out with customer service. That definitely wasn't the case with a Canadian woman who purchased a new iPad from Target on Black Friday, only to find out it was already full of someone else's data -- and rather than return to the store, she tipped off the local news instead. That story and a handful of new product info kicks off our Wednesday morning news coverage!
Tuesday could very well be a special day for longtime users of FileMaker, as Apple's U.K. website has prematurely leaked the latest version of the popular database software, complete with new versions of its mobile apps.
We loved Bento 4 for Mac, and now FileMaker has brought its killer features to Bento for iPad. But while Bento for Mac is $49.99 in the Mac App Store, the iPad version is just $9.99 -- with a $4.99 sale through July 31.
Back when the Mac first came out, when screens were only black and white, when graphics had no transparency, no gradients, not even textures, we had pattern fills. They were rudimentary tools for giving 2D, black-and-white graphical objects some flair. Phased out from just about every software product by the mid 1990s, those patterns persisted in FileMaker Pro and became emblematic of the long-neglected interface tools known as the “design surface.” With version 12, FileMaker finally ditches the ’80s patterns and gives users the tools for making good-looking databases in no time at all.
If your business necessitates the persistent use of databases to interact with customers and employees alike, today's your day. FileMaker Pro 12 was unleashed earlier today with an assortment of new themes, and if you're looking to take the desktop application's organizational power mobile, things are going to be a whole heck of a lot cheaper.
Is there a decent CRM (Customer Relationship Management) application out there that won’t cost a bundle, lets you build and keep your own local database, and syncs with all of your various iOS devices?
Your business has developed a workflow around FileMaker Pro. With the proliferation of iPads and iPhones, your employees now have more need than ever to be able to access that FileMaker Pro data on their portable devices. Enter FileMaker Go, a portable, flexible product to add to your road warriors' arsenal.
We all constantly face organizational challenges: Do I have enough ingredients at home for this cake recipe? Which mechanic worked on my car last year? What’s the status of Project X? Bento is here to help with all those tiny details. You enter basic information, and the Bento database software manages the details. Bento excels at digitizing and corralling real-world concepts, but the best part is how it manages to make the somewhat-scary concept of a database downright user-friendly. It’s been Bento’s trademark since version one was released in 2008, and this fourth iteration continues FileMaker’s tradition of a database for the rest of us.
If you’re a FileMaker Go user, your hump day just got a little bit brighter: Apple subsidiary FileMaker, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of a 1.1 update to both the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad versions of FileMaker Go which bring some welcome new features.
