Leveraging Google Chrome for iOS with FileMaker Go

Ever so often, I’ll run across a tip that I think would be a great way to extend FileMaker Go outside of its sandbox. Recently, it was a tip from Google about opening links in Chrome from iOS. I wondered if there was a situation that, as a FileMaker Developer, I could use the method in a solution…? Turned out, I didn’t have to look any farther than an internal tool we use here at Skeleton Key. The following video will demonstrate just what I mean: Of course, to use this tool, you’ll have to make sure that Google Chrome is installed on the iOS devices that will be running your solution. So, this might not be the perfect tool for everyone. But, it might be another tool for your tool box. Matt Spencer is a Junior Developer at Skeleton Key and a FileMaker Certified Developer.
