How do I get my recipes onto my iPad or iPhone?

ANSWER (VIA iTUNES):

In the most simplest terms, you use iTunes to simply drag your “Computer Cuisine Deluxe Data.ina” file onto your device’s FileMaker Go app documents window. I made a step-by-step video showing how to do this, and it is found below, but the basic steps are as follows:

  1. Connect your iphone or iPad to your computer.
    IMPORTANT: Make sure your iPhone or iPad is unlocked by entering your passcode on the device!
  2. Find your Computer Cuisine Deluxe 9.0 folder on your hard drive.
    On the Mac, it will be in your Applications folder. On Windows, it will be in your Documents folder.
  3. Locate the Computer Cuisine Deluxe Data.ina file found within the Computer Cuisine Deluxe 9.0 folder.
  4. With your iPhone/iPad connected to your computer, launch iTunes and select your iPhone or iPad within iTunes at the top by clicking on the small iPhone or iPad icon.
  5. When your iOS device is selected in iTunes, you will see a sidebar on the left, and at the top under the gray Settings header, locate the listing for File Sharing. Click on File Sharing, and you will see a list of the Apps installed on your iOS device.
  6. Click on the FileMaker Go app.
  7. When the FileMaker Go app is selected, you can see the FileMaker Go Documents window to the right, with files are that installed into FileMaker Go on your iPhone or iPad.
  8. Simply drag your Computer Cuisine Deluxe Data.ina file into this window. (See step #2 where this is located)
    (What you are doing here is adding your recipe collection to the FileMaker Go app on your device)
  9. That’s it! You do not even have to sync your device. Your recipe collection is now on your device.
  10. You can then launch the FileMaker Go app on your iPhone or iPad, and select “Computer Cuisine Deluxe Data.ina” to view your entire recipe collection.
