A great brand that has been diminished with this version
I’ve used Toad on just about every database imaginable over my career, and sadly after using the Mac OS version for over a year now I have to say this is the worst version of the tool I’ve ever used. Little things just don’t work. I constantly get access errors and syntax errors on administrative task queries that when copied to another GUI or the command line tools execute flawlessly. I’m guessing that since the tool is free, it doesn’t get the largest budget for improvements and bug fixes which is too bad. I’ll be deleting the app today and moving to a paid tool…. too bad as I generally like the other versions of the tool. Free is not always better.
I have been using Toad for several months now to connect to databases such as MySQL, and Oracle, on my local machine. Its pretty good and offers some customizations that come handy for everyday use.
I also like the idea of having a TOAD app for the Mac. But this is terrible. Accomplishing the most simple tasks is painfully slow. And I have tried several times over the last year and it does not seem to be getting any better. It was just as bad the last time I used it as the first.
