Using JDM Premier Plus on an iPad

You can use JDM Premier Plus on an iPad with a free app called FileMaker Go which can be downloaded from the AppStore here:  https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/filemaker-go-13/id675292600?mt=8.  

You must transfer the file back and forth if you make changes and want to use another device (Computer or iPad).  

Be sure to have your Activation Key since you will be asked to activate on the iPad the first time the program is opened.

Please note there are some functions that will not be available on the iPad. For example you cannot use the Backup and Restore functions.
