Liya allows a user to access three Database Systems simultaneously from a single visual interface.

Liya can access MySQL, PostgreSQL & SQLite3 databases, all in the same way, using a simple 3-panel display - one panel for selecting the database and the table, another for editing the table structure, and the last for editing the contents of the table.

Liya can access databases in all three systems simultaneously, using multiple windows, with each window showing the contents of a single database.

And Liya will move data from one database to another, just by dragging and droppiing. If you need to copy the table structure of one table to another, even across database systems, simply drag and drop across windows. Do the same with data. You can export data from one database for backups that can be read by any of the other databases.

Works great for me

I’ve been using this for several years to help me debug CoreData in my apps. It works great. The author has also been responsive when I have contacted him about issues. The one thing I hope he will add is support for SQLite databases encypted using SQLCipher.

Hint for those having problems opening a database: you can drag a .sqlite file directly on the Liya app icon to open that database.

Good, but needs polish

I just needed something to edit SQLite databases for iOS development and didn't want to pay money for a solution that had more features than I needed. This app fits the bill pretty well, but could use a but more polish. For example, the app needs to indicate to the user that a custom SQL query is invalid. Also, it would be nice to be able to double click a SQLite database in Finder to launch the app. You have to launch the app first, create a new connection, and then point it to the file. Other than these items, this is a no-frills SQLite viewer that does everything I need it to do.
