Create an iPhone Optimized Filemaker Site with Dreamweaver

dreamweaver_box.jpgFor many people, Dreamweaver is an essential tool for making websites. I used Dreamweaver for a long time before I finally felt comfortable enough using a text editor. Indeed, DW still remains one of the most popular WYSIWYG  applications on the market.

fmpro_box.jpgFileMaker Pro is a cross-platform relational database application that integrates the database engine with a GUI-based interface. This allows users to modify the database by dragging new elements into the layouts/screens/forms that provide the user interface.

I came across a very cool tool that makes it very easy for developers to create dynamic, database driven, iPhone optimized websites using Filemaker Pro and Dreamweaver. It’s appropriately called the FM Studio iPhone module for Dreamweaver.

[singlepic id=150 w=150 h=113 float=left]FM Studio installs just like a normal Dreamweaver module (in seconds). It makes it simple to connect your page to Filemaker and MySQL databases through a visual GUI, without writing PHP. The module also comes with predefined iPhone stylesheets.

If you have already own a copy of Filemaker Pro and Dreamweaver, and you need to design an iPhone optimized site, than the $9.99 for the module is probably worth it.
