788t Name File DB for iPhone..

Recommended Posts

Fellow 788t owners.. I have a little database I wrote that now runs on the iPhone via Filemaker Go, which you download from the App Store.. I own 2 788t recorders and mainly work in episodic..So, every 8 days, new cast names to deal with.. I've long had this feature as a part of my breakdown app I wrote but spun it off to a standalone iPhone thing.. Its simple.. You run the DB, put in the name of the file the app will create, add all the character names you wish and email the result to your computer.. On a Mac or PC you connect to your 788t, copy over the file and Load from List in the names menu and off you go.. I got tired of changing names on both units so this was a fast way to deal with that... I hope this does someone some good... Below are links to both the Database file and a few videos hastily cobbled together to demo... Enjoy.. PS, only for iOS until they make Filemaker Go for Android and if you have a copy of filemaker pro on your Mac or PC this will work perfectly and expose a new button that allows you to save to your desktop..

Open the link from browser on iphone..It will ask if you want to open in Filemaker go..
