FileMaker Inc. says that, as of Sept. 30, 2013, FileMaker Go 11 for iPad and FileMaker Go 11 for iPhone will no longer be available for purchase on the iTunes App Store.
Customers who purchase FileMaker Go 11 before that date will still be able to download it from the iTunes App Store when, for example, replacing an existing iPad with a new iPad. However, after Sept. 30, FileMaker Go 11 will not be available for purchase for new devices. FileMaker Go 12 for iPad and FileMaker Go 12 for iPhone continue to be available free on the iTunes App Store.
FileMaker Go 11 for iPad and FileMaker Go 11 for iPhone (formerly named FileMaker Go 1.2) only open databases that use the .fp7 file format. Databases with .fp7 file format are created with FileMaker Pro/Pro Advanced 11, 10, 9, 8.5, 8, and 7. FileMaker Go 11 is not compatible with databases created with FileMaker Pro 12.
FileMaker Go 12 only opens databases that use the .fmp12 file format. Databases with .fmp12 format are created using FileMaker Pro 12 and FileMaker Pro 12 Advanced. FileMaker Go 12 is not compatible with databases created using FileMaker Pro 11 or earlier unless they have been converted to .fmp12. Converting your existing solutions is straightforward.
