FileMaker, Inc. added digital signature capture, the ability to view and edit charts created with FileMaker Pro 11, and support for AirPrint to FileMaker Go for iPhone and FileMaker Go for iPad. FileMaker Go is the top-selling business database app for the iPhone and iPad.

Free for existing FileMaker Go users from the iTunes App Store, FileMaker Go 1.2 for iPhone and FileMaker Go 1.2 for iPad now offer:
  • Support for FileMaker Charts, including bar, line, area and pie charts: View, edit and update eye-catching reports (created with FileMaker Pro 11 for Mac and Windows) on the iPhone or iPad. Chart data can come from FileMaker Pro or can be passed through from SQL sources for two-way exchange and analysis of business data. Now data can be easily viewed and updated in beautiful charts from anywhere in the world.
  • Digital signatures on iPhone and iPad: Ideal for confirming receipt of goods, field surveys and more, signatures can be captured on the go, making it easy to sign contracts, invoices and other documents without printing hard copies in advance. Signed documents can be exported to a desktop or uploaded instantly to databases hosted on FileMaker Server.
  • Print anywhere with AirPrint: FileMaker Go takes advantage of AirPrint, the new iOS feature, to print wirelessly to AirPrint-enabled printers. Print everything from reports and forms to name tags and sales receipts on the go, and easily customize and save print options.
