Xojo already has many users with FileMaker experience. They now use Xojo for a variety of reasons, some of which include:

Xojo is a powerful, full-featured development tool and as far as professional development tools go, Xojo is rather easy to use. FileMaker is far simpler and so it can be a bit easier to use, particularly if you do not have programming experience. But for people with programming experience or those that want to learn, Xojo is a great choice for creating powerful apps to meet nearly any business need.

We have created several resources to make it easier for FileMaker developers to get started with Xojo.

Xojo is free for development and testing and has a 90-day return policy. Give it a try to see how you can start making better apps! If you have questions, ask on our forum or shoot me an email.
