Blazingly Fast Barcode Scanning with Linea Pro and Infinea Scanners
Linea Pro and Infinea are multi-purpose scanners made by Infinite Peripherals that attach as a protective case to your iPhone or iPad. They allow for blazingly fast and reliable barcode scanning and RFID reading or writing. Let us show you how easily you can integrate these scanners into your own custom app made with Claris FileMaker...
All Plug-Ins Updated for Apple Silicon
We have updated all our plug-ins to work with FileMaker 19.3 and later on Macs with the M1 Apple Silicon processor. If you are still running FileMaker 19.2 or older just to keep our plug-ins working, now you can plan updating to the latest version of FileMaker and take the full advantage of the Apple Silicon native performance.
Gonector Prints RFID Labels
We have made our mobile hardware integration plug-in able to print labels on the Zebra ZQ630 RFID and compatible label printers, including reading and writing UHF RFID tags embedded in the labels. Gonector print labels quickly and reliably via Bluetooth using ZPL, so you don’t have to rely on wi-fi or AirPrint.
Reading and Writing NFC Tags from FileMaker
Every iPhone 7 or newer can read NFC tags. Starting from iOS 13, iPhone can also write to NFC tags. Our Gonector plug-in enables you to do that directly from your custom FileMaker apps. You can use this to store any data to the tag, such as product ID, inspection history of a device, link to instructions on how to use a device, or anything else.
Implementing Industrial Barcode Scanners from Zebra
Gonector lets you integrate your custom FileMaker apps with industrial barcode scanners from Zebra to scan your barcodes quickly and reliably even in poor light conditions. Learn how you can easily implement these scanners into your own app for tasks such as inventory counting.

Now we are preparing our performance lab to test FileMaker 19 performance and compare it to the previous versions.
Bridge for Arduino released
We are extending the range of hardware modules that can be easily integrated with the FileMaker platform by adding support the popular open-source hardware platform Arduino. The successful Phidgets Plug-In so becomes Bridge to reflect the growing range of supported hardware platforms.
Convert FileMaker Styled Text to HTML
If you care about text styles then you care about presentation. And if the text you produce is going to be presented in the digital world, such as on a website or in an e-mail client, or any other platform based on HTML and CSS, then you should pay attention to what the HTML you produce tells about you, both to humans and to computers.
RFID and NFC are on the Rise
You may have already seen my hardware integration demo where I combined iPads, iPhones, motors, barcodes, RFID, digital scale, mobile receipt printer, and payment cards. Although everyone loved the automated moving parts built from LEGO, the after-session questions and discussions were actually mostly focused on RFID and NFC.
