  • Hi Andrew,

    what way of VFP application porting to iPad is not easy for you now?

    The easiest way is probably to rewrite the app in FileMaker.

  • You can develop a jQuery Mobile front end to your VFP data and VFP Code.  This will not only work with iPad and iPhone but also Android, Windows Mobile, etc.

    In addition to retrieving the VFP data and application logic, you can also save and use that data locally on those devices using local storage.

    I'm putting together a jQuery Mobile/ VFP app right now...
