Tap Forms is a very powerful organizational tool designed to help you keep track of all your life's most important information.

+++ Mac Format Magazine (March, 2014) - Simple to use Databases:
"Tap Forms is the clear winner by a mile. The user interface is beautifully Mac-like, the structuring of data is similar enough to Bento that it offers only a shallow learning curve, it offers a direct import of Bento templates, and the iOS companion app is great."

+++ Tap Forms for iPhone, iPad and Mac each sold separately +++

Use Tap Forms to track your inventory at work and manage your household items at home. Great for insurance and accounting purposes! It's even great for managing your holiday gift lists or keeping track of all your expenses and to-dos.

If you're a master chef in the kitchen, you can use Tap Forms to manage your entire library of delicious cuisines.

Are you a movie buff but you have too many movies to keep track of? That's easy, since Tap Forms can help you categorize, rate, and manage your entire movie collection. Never forget who you've lent your movies to ever again.

And with built-in support for iCloud, now you can keep all your Tap Forms data on your iPhone and iPad in sync with your Mac. So when you're out at the store trying to remember if you already own a copy of The Terminator, just look it up on your iPhone using Tap Forms for iOS!

Speaking of looking up stuff, Tap Forms now has Saved Search Rules. With Saved Search Rules, you can create any number of filters that helps you find and sort through thousands of pieces of information as quickly as you can tap a button. It's your data just the way you want, in an instant!

Note: iCloud sync requires Tap Forms 3.9.2 for iPhone, Tap Forms HD 3.9.2 for iPad and iOS 8. Each sold separately.

What's New in Version 3.5.14

Version 3.5.14
• Fixed a bug that could cause Tap Forms to quit when you tried to add a child record to a Link to Form field.
• Fixed a bug where the Website Address field in a custom layout wasn't allowing URLs that open other apps to be followed.
• Fixed a bug with the Pick List select values popover that could accidentally add a blank entry to the set of available values.

Version 3.5.13
• Fixed bug that caused the Sync Failed message to appear when syncing with iCloud Drive.

Version 3.5.12

• Fixed a bug which would cause the Tap Forms' Photos folder to be deleted in Dropbox if you deleted a Photo field in any form. This only occurred when you were syncing with Dropbox. Also, the photos would be re-synced back to Dropbox the next time you launched Tap Forms. Tap Forms will now correctly only delete the photos that belonged to the field being deleted.
•  Fixed a bug where the objects on a custom layout could still be selected and moved around even if the Layout Inspector panel was not visible.

Version 3.5.11

• Fixed a bug with the Note field on custom layouts sometimes losing its text content.
• Fixed issue with single-file File Attachment field losing its attachment.
• Fixed bug where the form wasn't changing on the Form inspector panel when Tap Forms was locked and then unlocked.
• Fix for Dropbox setting not sticking after you authorize Dropbox.

Great Simple Database App

I use TapForms to keep records of those who attend our church. Although I am not a programmer, the simplicity of TapForms allowed me to create my own customized database that contains precisely the information I need including names, photos, cell phone numbers, addresses, birthdates, anniversaries, baptism dates, a record of correspondence, and so on. I not only keep these records on my MacBook Pro, but through the Cloud can easily access them on my iPad and my iPhone. Thus, these records go with me wherever I go and can be updated after a meeting with someone for coffee. Moreover, when I have had more complex questions not answered by the “help” menu, the TapForms staff have promptly responded with easy to understand answers.

I looked at and tried a variety of database applications for our church. One cloud based database application cost per month what TapForms costs to use on my MacBook Pro forever. None worked as well as TapForms. I highly recommend TapForms.

Great for organizing

This app is great for organizing really anything. Contacts, inventories, notes, etc. It’s obvious the developer has put a lot of hard work into it, and continues to. He’s very quick to respond on inquiries and always seems to be working on new features. There should be Dropbox syncing sometime soon, which I’m excited about.

Really the only thing I want to see in this app, which will make me use it for real, is the ability to encypt file attachments. Right now, all it encrypts is the database. I would like to use Tap Forms to go paperless, but it’s kind of pointless when none of the scanned valuable documents can be encrypted. Or if I have a business client database, I can’t encrypt important file attachments such as contracts, financial documents, etc.

It would also be extremely useful it it could let you have multiple databases. Right now, there isn’t a way to have distinctly seperate databases and which you can encrypt independently.

User friendly database for non-techies

This app has become indispensable to me since the disappointing demise of Bento. It's pretty simple as databases go so you don't have to be a genius. The best thing is that Brendan is SO responsive when I have a question. It is so rare to get help from a developer that I give apps 100 extra points for that. I use TF to keep info on a variety of subjects, e.g. room reservation clients, medical providers, stores, and restaurants. I use Evernote too, for free form info but Tap Forms is better for more structured uses. I’m syncing with the iPhone using Dropbox and it works well most of the time.
