CREATING BUSINESS APPS FOR THE IPHONE AND IPAD

A free iPhone/iPad app called “FileMaker Go 12” runs iPhone/iPad apps you can create with the Filemaker popular database. It’s been downloaded over 100,000 times in the first week.

It’s often a good idea to create your own apps. The Berklee (sic) College of Music in Boston created an iPad app to manage audition data for 7,000 musicians worldwide. Instead of lugging heavy laptops, the faculty and staff now use their iPads to follow 300 domestic and 30 overseas
auditions. They organize schedules, view videos and bring in student ID numbers from the old database.

Filemaker Pro 12 is a $300 program from filemaker.com. There’s a free trial. A cheaper version called “Bento” sells for $49 version and is for Macs only. (Bento is Japanese for box.)

  1. Thanks so much for sharing this. I’m a filemaker developer myself, and I find this sort of thing really interesting. It’s so cool that Berklee used this for their auditions! I have even more respect for their school now!
