FileMaker Pro for BlackBerry Storm, Pearl, Curve and Bold

Very soon, FMWebschool will be releasing a very powerful relational database system for the BlackBerry. FMTouchBB will allow multiple related tables and databases. You will be able to sync back to FileMaker Client and to FileMaker Server.

The beginning of July will mark over 9 months of programming - and we have decided give everyone a look at FileMaker running on the BlackBerry.

So, imagine if you will, the ability to run a relational database, view, sort, edit, create records, display portals, images in portals, value lists, display layout objects, and container fields and sync. You can access all of your FileMaker data without being connected to the internet. Your data will be running locally on your BlackBerry:)

We have created a simple FileMaker Devcon Database to give an example of FileMaker running on the BlackBerry.

Contact's Layout with fields, number formatting, container fields, and layout objects displaying.

Exhibitors Table / Layout with fields, portals pulling from a related table and layout objects showing.

Agenda with multiple layout objects, and value lists

Contact's database running on the BlackBerry Curve.

For those of you that are interested in learning more about FileMaker and the BlackBerry - be sure to join the FMTouch notification / email group at or follow me on Twiter

If you could pick 15 FileMaker scripts that you would LOVE to see running on the BlackBerry what would they be?
1. Script Step To Link To Documents,Photos, PDF's like
"Send Message"

2. An email script step
3. A PDF Script Step
4. A GTRR Script Step
5. A CSV Script Step
Great to see such innovation in the Filemaker community. I'll be making a purchase soon as I get my iphone.
After Initally looking at ways to integrate BBFMTouch with the Blackberry I went to your calculation guide:
-Go to Layout
-Go to Record
-New Record
-Delete Record
-Set Field
-Open URL
-Close Window (closes DB, returns to list of files in FMTouch)
-Exit Application (closed DB, then exits FMTouch completely
-Dial Phone
Thank you everyone for your comments - please keep them coming! We will be releasing our first version of the BlackBerry FMTouch in July!
Just wondering when you thought a BB version of FMP might be available. Been using FMP for over 12 years (loyal Joe that I am) and now have a Blackberry Bold. Would love to bring the worlds together in my day-to-day. Tom
