"HanDBase for iPhone is a very powerful and customizable database. There's really no competition to HanDBase, and given their long history and track record in the handheld world, HanDBase will be adopted quickly in businesses where custom databases are needed. At [Price], this app is a bargain." TUAW.com review
"If you’re sick of buying [...] iPhone/Touch applications that don’t live up to their hype – then you should look at HanDBase" GearDiary.com review

What's New in Version 4.9.073
Fixed issue with Form Save to PDF when form was larger than the visible phone screen.
Promising app w big limitations
This app has an interesting and long lineage dating back to the palm. Unfortunately it is hampered by trying to support too many platforms and just one or two developers behind it.
Pros: extremely cost effective text based database app. Surprising extensibility. Supported by dozens of user supported db templates.
Cons: very erratic support. Poor desktop synchronization. Limited logic capabilities. Field limitations. No editable calculated fields. No ability to mass update calculated fields on import.
Final verdict: great for the price but you get what you pay for.
Ive been building a mini crm app on this. Surprising what i can do. However the pc based client cannot replicate iphone functionality 100% so ive ended up doing all my design and data updates on the iphone. Save yourself money-only buy the desktop version if you either need a backup copy or if you have simple data updates u need to do. Dont think you can enter data on the phone and then mass update it locally because it doesnt work under many conditions. Also recommend you buy the forms designer.
Also, note the field logic is limited, you cant override it at the record level, and there is no currency value. There is the ability to create multiple databases and link them together which is very cool.
I've been using this app for a long time, and it serves me well. I have a number of databases that I use frequently, and this really helps me keep track of a lot of things.
If you are not familiar with using databases, this app could be a little intimidating at first. But if you have created and used databases before, then you'll be impressed with all of the capabilities. They have made this a great app!
I really like the app (I remember it from the Palm OS days), but there are glitches such as the text input being placed below the keyboard once the input field exceeds the visible screen.
What made me give this 3 stars though is the completely broken encryption feature. It doesn't matter what password I put on it, I can open it up with whatever random character I want despite the set password.
