The premier database application for the Macintosh. It has a PC equivalent. This application, originally put out by Claris, is now owned by its own company, named Filemaker, remarkably enough. There is no Microsoft Access for this platform, so the version of Office for the Macintosh has conversion utilities that work with it. It is an important tool for Macintosh-based businesses and many different third-party solutions are available for it as add-ons.
It is an ODBC application, so it is possible to hook it up to web services and perform many of the tasks that its older, and more established cousins can. Among Mac users, this is a very popular, killer Mac app.
It is available at least in Japanese and English. Also known as FileMaker Pro.
