Looking for Database app compatible with Filemaker

Recommended Posts

I am purchasing a Nexus 7 shortly and currently use Filemaker 12 and Bento 4 on my Mac and iPhone. I'm looking for some way to use filemaker on Android. I've done some google research and it seems one of the best database apps is Memento but I've also seen mention of Cellica and FMDroid.

Are there any Android database apps that would work with Filemaker? I'm fine if I have to import the filemaker apps and even change format. Also, if a database app exports a csv format it would also be useful since csv can be imported into Filemaker. The ability to import a csv format file would also be a plus.

Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

Hello Mark,

I'm the developer of FMDroid. I've recently updated it to work with FileMaker 12, though the app only works if you have FileMaker Server with XML publishing enabled on the server and in your database. It can't read .fp12 files directly, unfortunately.

Feel free to email [email protected] with questions, and check out http://smefworks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2 and http://smefworks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3 for more information about how to set up your database to work best with FMDroid. Let me know if you run into any problems (be sure to hit the "report a bug" button if you get a crash) and I'll take care of them for you as soon as I can.


EDIT:  FMDroid is now managed through Blue Feather, where I also do FileMaker and Android development.
