eTip- 052 - Copying files from Windows to iOS Devices

This process requires two free Apps that can be gotten from the Apple App Store. The first, Apple iTunes, is downloaded to your computer where eTouch is running (laptop or desktop). The 2nd app, FileMaker Go 19, is downloaded to the iOS device. FM Go will be used to run eTouch on the iOS device. 

 1. Once eTouch is installed on your ‘Mothership Computer’ (laptop or desktop), send the eTouch Team the following information as entered into eTouch at the time of installation: 

 a. First Name

 b. Last Name

 c. eMail Address 

d. eTouch Code (will be on the About Screen) in the format .xxxxxx

 Send to:
