Ratings and Reviews
No loner as great an option for Access Db sync
I have been using the app for over 4 years and loved the fact I could sync wirelessly, create custom forms with subforms, and select which tables and queries I want to sync. The form creation tool while good in function can be a challenge to get things to line up consistently and depending on your desktop resolution settings can produce drastic inconsistencies. Once you get beyond that the product itself has not been upgraded with any improvements in over a year and support has become suspect.
They do not do a good job of letting you know when there are updates to the desktop software. I had recent need to contact the support and they took a week for first response and the attempt to resolve a problem took many days of back and forth because support does not seem to work on US business hours, therefore they lost 1 star for that.
They loose another star because the software is not easy to migrate settings when you get a new computer and it's even worse when you upgrade your phone/tablet because they charge you more money to move the license. I have many apps on my phone that require a license and special configurations to connect to networks & devices but this is the only one that requires me to wait for the vendor support to respond.
Finally the community forums appear to be taken over by spam/junk and no relevant product postings in over a year.
The BEST database in existence!
I depend on this app for my profession and for many other things. It is very easy to use and performs as advertised. It sets up with no fuss, it adopts all common files quickly without error and finds the records the way I want them to. It's works with my home and network seamlessly. I've been glad to watch CellicaDatabase improve the product which improves my information management. It's the best! You won't regret it. Take a little time to learn it. It's not hard. By the way some of the databases I use come from a DOS-based OS from 1999. CellicaDatabase has no problem importing it, using it and entering in / recalling records.
I was looking for a gateway to a large business database. What this PC+iPad app does is transfer the WHOLE database to the iPad so you can access it independent of a PC-hosted version of it.
Interestingly enough, there is another server in the picture - when you set up e connection with the desktop it isn't necessary to really connect the iPad to the PC. Apparently the vendor's server sorts the out with the UDID of the iPad and joins them up. I suspect the synchronization works even if the PC isn't currently running.
One huge problem in a multi-user environment is there are no "locks" on altered records. This means that a user with this can make changes to the data that other users will no see until a successful synchronization occurs.
I can't say I spent a lot of time playing with this, but as far as I got it seems to work fine.
For smallish databases, this seems like a good idea. For a large business database this is completely unworkable.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
