Special iPhone FileMaker Newsletter

While the rest of the FMWebschool team are busily working on the next update of FMTouch, I have surreptitiously removed myself from the great think tank long enough to fire off yet another amazing tome of literary genius. Actually I believe my only job is bringing the developers coffee and cookies, they seem to thrive on copious amounts of sugar.

Onward before I am accused of pontificating. Each month I write a newsletter and release it to the FileMaker community. Currently we have over 7000 subscribers - and I have to think that it's because of my amazing writing skills and not the fact that we give away numerous FileMaker centric applications in each issue.

Next week our newsletter will focus on FileMaker and the iPhone. I'll be discussing all types of iPhone tips as well as developing FileMaker databases for the iPhone. Some of the other articles to be discussed in the Newsletter are - "What computer tools do you use to make your life easier", "How do you handle customer refunds and exhanges", "The future of the mobile market", "How to build a website for the iPhone", and I will be reviewing the book "Satisfied Customers Tell Three Friends, Angry Customers Tell 3,000".

We spend on average 40 hours each month researching articles and creating sample files for the our newsletter. So if you like FileMaker, and you like the iPhone, and here's the kicker - and you like to read (or at least look at pictures) then by all means subscribe to our fascinating newsletter. Subscribe to the Newsletter I know there will still be people asking how to subscribe to the Newsletter. For those of you who fall into this category count backwards 25 words and click on the letters in orange.

Well my short escape has thusly been discovered - back to programming I go.

Andy Gaunt to Broadcast Live Video of FMTouch

Andy Gaunt of FMPug will be demonstrating FMTouch Live today at 1:00 PM EDT. You can log-on to watch Andy at

Andy is the author of the now infamous Style Guide which many FMToucher's are using to create iPhone centric layouts in FileMaker.

We (the creators of FMTouch) will be participating live as well by answering questions and ushering up a few well placed jokes - I mean helpful comments along the way.

We hope to see you there! I'll be blogging about the presentation once Maestro Gaunt is finished the broadcast.

Welcome To the FMTouch Blog

Welcome to the FMTouch Blog. The creators of FMTouch will be posting several times a week about new updates, feature requests, news, new products etc...

We would also like to give you a chance to get to know us. We will endeavor to make ourselves as accessible as possible.

For those of you wondering what FMTouch is, FMTouch is a software application written by the team at FMWebschool. FMTouch enables you to run FileMaker Pro on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

FMTouch supports multiple databases. Imagine having your contacts database, your inventory database, all with you on your iPhone. You can access your data anywhere and never have to worry about internet connections. While everyone else is suffering from the “no bars” crisis, you can be the hero by having all of your FileMaker data running locally on your iPhone. If you add, edit or delete records from your FMTouch database, you can easily sync to your main FileMaker database on your local or served file with our secure sync plug-in. FMTouch works equally well on both Macintosh and Windows.

We are extremely excited to be developing a tool that will change the face of the mobile market!

In Kindness
The Team at FMWebschool
