FileMaker Pro 12 inside a app

Post by lawfour2005 » Wed Aug 22, 2012 1:28 am

Is possible and is it allowed to place a FileMaker Pro 12 solution inside a App then have it launch on ipad or iphone using FileMakerGo 12? Basically using the app as a container for FileMakerGo 12.

If so how would I do that or can you point me in the right direction.

Host your FM database on a server (I have hosting accounts available for 11 euro per year) and lauch the url fmp:// from a LiveCode script. This will open the database in FM Go if that's installed. This is probably the only solutions that comes close to what you are looking for.

I'd be pretty interested in the same thing if there was a way. Or better yet, the reverse.... Apps without the app store..
