Filemaker , the professional database solution for Apple’s platforms, was updated by surprise today at the Apple Store in the UK. The thirteenth version can now be purchased in the UK, although there is no official information on the application’s official website. I think someone has pressed the wrong button, because the theoretically current version of FileMaker (version 12) has also disappeared from some stores.
As there is no official list of improvements, we have to look around and see what filters through the store’s product pages: we have new features to share, a redesign of the mobile applications to match the iOS 7 interface and new database templates, but so far nothing else is confirmed.
Most likely, either Apple or Filemaker will fix this by removing all traces of the applications, but the damage is already done: FileMaker 13 prices are £286.95 for the standard version (or £199.95 for education and non-profit organizations) and £454.95 for the Advanced version (or £272.95 for the same institutions as before). Licenses for the iOS versions are included in the application package.
