FileMaker Go and Container Fields

Hello,

I have been working with FileMaker Go for a few months now and I really like most of its capability. But I am really stumped on how to get the container field to accept anything other than a Picture. I would like to be able to drop an audio file (2MB max) into a container field on a dedicated layout while in FileMaker Go. I have tried a lot of different techniques and the biggest drawback I have found is that the iOS for both iPhone and iPad do not allow apps to share a clipboard. So I don't know if the limitation is with FileMaker Go or the iOS it is running on.

Has anyone been able to get this type of container feature to work? I've tried dropbox but can't get the file to upload to the Public folder to create a predictable path.

All suggestions are would be a great help.

Thanks,

Charlie

Currently Go doesn't support audio files. For me it really sucks. I have a system with lots of audio files in it and I can't do anything with them on any iOs system.
