The premier professional database application on the Mac platform is loaded with new features, the most exciting of which is that FileMaker iOS applications are now free.
In addition, FileMaker 12 is optimized to work in 64-bit environments (which also leads to better management of large databases), has newly designed templates, works better on local networks, and improves file and streaming video transmission. You can see that the Post-PC era has taken its toll, as the design process has many details specifically designed to display databases on the iPhone and iPad.
FileMaker 12 is now available in Pro ( £418.80, £250.80 if you upgrade ), Pro Advanced (?598.80, £358.80 if you upgrade), Server (?1198.80, £718.80 if you upgrade) and Server Advanced (?3418.80, £2050.80 if you upgrade). Remember that if what you want is database management at a more general and basic level, you always have Bento 4 in the Mac App Store at a much lower price: 39.99 euros. The basic requirements for Mac are OS X 10.6 or higher, an Intel processor and 1 or 2 GB of RAM depending on the system (4 are recommended).
