Discussion: FileMaker Go and iOS 9 Multitasking

1

Update: FileMaker Go now supports iOS 9 Multitasking. Click to read more: FileMaker Go iOS 9 Multitasking Support

Apple will be releasing iOS 9 later today which will contain a whole bunch of new features. One of these new features will be multitasking for iPads. This is where the user can have two apps open at once; with the screen split into two parts.

Multitasking is one of the biggest new features for iPad that comes with iOS 9 and I’m sure it is going to make a lot of tasks a great deal easier. I can’t wait to begin using it; especially with FileMaker Go! The ability to have a clients e-mail open at the same time as generating an invoice or calculating an estimate is going to be immensely useful. Or will it?

I certainly hope that FileMaker Go will be compatible with this feature! Also I would like to stress that I have not read; or heard anything, that is telling me that FileMaker Go will not be compatible with this iOS 9 feature.

I was simply using FileMaker Go on my iPhone last night, switching between generating an invoice and looking at my clients e-mail, and remembered that when you switch between apps the FileMaker Go app will enter an ‘idle’ mode.

I began to wonder whether the same would happen when using the new iOS 9 multitasking feature?

So as a question to everyone out there; maybe even FileMaker themselves? Will FileMaker Go be compatible with this new iOS 9 feature?
