Customer Reviews

Easy-to-use simple databases

SW168

So glad I gave this app another chance! I reviewed this app less-than-favorably a couple years ago because I lost all my data. In the years since, I tried some other database apps that had a better reputation for reliability… but really I found them too complicated for my needs. I really didn’t need (or want) to use tables and formulas. I just need to keep track of some inventory, so I just need a robust list that I can search and filter in lots of different ways. I’d used this app before when “smart groups” was a paid feature; now it is included in the price and it’s just as easy as I recall. My only complaint is that if I make any changes to a choice list, then it can also change the results of a smart group, so I have to spend a little time editing smart group settings. The manual Dropbox backup and manual wifi sync is okay. Initially I had some hesitation about wifi sync (I seem to recall this was a method some of my favorite apps used years ago before everything was cloud-based). I thought it might be a hassle remembering to sync manually, but it’s not. I do most database work on a laptop, so I just grab my phone and sync the changes before I close the desktop app. So far I have not experienced any data loss. With the price, ease of use, smart groups, and iOS app… I’m quite happy with it.

Very handy! Our ecommerce company uses it daily.

We use iDatabase in our office. Each week, I download all of our online sales for the preceding week, from our shipping cart software. The download comes through as a CSV file. I send a copy of each day's file to our sales staff. Our sales staff opens the file in iDatabase and can quickly getting a nice view of each customer's order. From iDatabase, the order data in iDatabase, my staff calls back each customer to make a friendly follow up call on their recent order.

We also have Bento. By comparison, Bento is not as clean and simple. iDatabase gets out of the way. Our staff can easily see the info they need to see and get down to the work of calling customers.

Sure iDatabase is "No Frills". In fact that is exactly what we love about it. If you need a simple container for data, then iDatabase will likely serve your needs nicely.

No Filtering Feature

Steinerboo

I'm not sure what the point of a database application is without a filter feature (I didn't even check to see if iDatabase had one before downloading, because I assumed the need for one was obvious). The Search function is fine, but if I have a list of 5000 contacts, and can't use it to generate a list of the 150 of them that are personal friends (I created a Business/personal field with the completely reasonable expectation this would work.)
As best as I can tell, I can't even get the records to sort by the Business/Personal field, so I can at least see all my personal contacts clumped together.
If this doesn't matter to you, and you just want a place to store data, but not be able to access it efficiently, then I guess this app is worth the relatively low price tag.
The support site says they're working on "More Flexible" searching features in the future. If they do come to offer filtering or more flexible sorting in the future, I'll gladly change my review - the UI is nice, and importing was a breeze. I will keep an eye out for updates that will make this app useful.
