FileMaker celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. FileMaker has seen a lot of changes along the way, but it remains one of the Mac's most versatile and powerful database apps.
FileMaker got its start back in the early 1980s as a program for PC-compatible computers running MS-DOS. The software changed hands a few times, including a brief ownership by Microsoft. The powerful database program remains one of the most enduring and successful Mac apps ever released, and it's stronger than ever with its version 14 release.
