No Search Options


Overall this is an OK simple little database. I was looking for something that was simple, straightforward, and would handle an image. This is a little less than I wanted but it was as close as I could get. All I really want to do is itemize and track the items I make for a new Etsy shop I started. All I need is a name, description, quantity, and an image; a SKU space is a luxury. I don’t want to spend a lot nor do I need a full POS at this point. This fits that bill, BUT…

BUT this doesn’t have a search or sort option. Items are shown in the same order in which they are entered. There is no way to search to find a particular item. Not by sku, nor description. There is litterally no “Search” in the program. This makes it virtually useless. If it had a search option I would probably give this app 5 stars but without it… I wrote to support asking if I was missing something 24 hours ago, not even an automatted message letting me know they got the message.

This is what I hate about the APP model of software. Pay for it. Find that it doesn’t work as expected. Tough beans, no way to know if support is available. Have a great day and thanks for your $13!

Missing one vital feature


Four star review. Would be 5 but there is no way to sync. In fact, the data is stored in the library, it doesn’t even make files except as an export. So, it’s a one computer, no sync to another affair. That’s a near fatal issue in this day and age. That problem aside, it’s fantastic! You can view ‘excel’ style or record by record in a form of your own lay out. Super easy and convenient. I have’t stored too much data in it yet (because of the sync issue) but it hasn’t lost anything yet. I like it a lot. Gives me really useful features, and doesn’t bog me down with too much. I haven’t worked too much with the math. I don’t know if it can, for example, sum two fields into a third. If it can’t do that it really needs that too.

All in all, a good prodect that I’m hoping to see some improvment in.

Good Product, Needs Works


The basic concept of this system is great. I’m able to search up any criteria and it come up with the list of objectives as needed that I was looking for. It has a somewhat limited ability however in that the database that you create is limited to only the app and what is clearly there in the toolbox. For instance, my clients need to have a product changed every 6 months. I am not able to create a reminder or a widget in the toolbox that says “client is due for a change”. As a basic database this app works fine, which is why I give it 4/5 stars. I would like to see more features available that are interactive to the user.
