[Solved] Mojave and 32-bit apps
I've read that Mojave will be the last macOS that supports 32 bit apps. I've also read that High Sierra is the last macOS that supports 32 bit apps "without compromise."
The only 32 bit app that I'm currently using that I have not found a replacement for is FileMaker Pro (I'm on version 12). The current version, 17, is now only sold as FileMaker Pro Advanced, and costs $540. Since my needs are personal, I can't justify that kind of expense.
Does anyone know what compromises Apple foresees in Mojave?
Or, maybe a better question is does anyone know a good FMP alternative?
Or even, why did they kill Bento? 🙂
I wish they hadn't killed Bento -- it had a lot of promise and I haven't been able to find a replacement for it. My guess is that relational databases are just too difficult for people to understand and create well. In fact, just this past weekend I exported data from a custom-made FileMaker database because they want to go back to using Excel. Sigh.
You might look into Airtable. I've been able to use it for some things, even though it's quite limited. It's not truly a database program, and it's a web app.
You might be able to upgrade to FileMaker Pro 15, which is 64-bit capable. This post on the FileMaker Forums has more detail.
