Apple buys Workflow this week and it got us thinking about a session we did at last year’s FileMaker DEVCON where we demonstrated Workflow integrated with FileMaker custom apps to do fun stuff like:
-Scan a document using OCR and embed the text in your custom app
-Edit an image before storing it in a container
-Send Driving directions to Maps
-Add a call reminder to the notification center from your CRM
-Assign a task, notify assignee via SMS and allow them to accept
-Initiate a call, then log the call
-Turn on a light!
Could this purchase be a way to work within iOS sandboxing? If so, the above links could be a glimpse into FileMaker Go’s future.
