The BEST IOS Database app

TapForms is the best database app for IOS hands down. It has just been upgraded to version 5 and I am impressed with it's improvements. I had used TapForms a long time ago, but stopped mainly due to it's awkward syncing process. Version 5 adds a new 3rd party syncing process that so far has been working flawlessly. Other improvements are welcomed as well. The developer's focus and response iOS excellent. If you are looking for a database app, or want to upgrade an older version of TapForms, I recommend it. There was not much wrong with it before, it's even better now.

Yet another cloud subscription - ARRRGGG!

First let me say that I LOVE Tap Forms. It reminds me of the old Symantec Q&A. Simple, yet powerful. Maybe as nice as the old venerable Lotus Approach.

I've been using Tap Forms for several years now, and it fits the bill for all of my filing needs. No, it isn't a Filemaker Pro replacement. It doesn't try to be. But for the most complicated and complex databases, this workes wonderfully. Really.

Being notified of the version 5 upgrade, I paid the very reasonable fee for the upgrade. However, I was surprised to learn that syncing no longer worked, and to enable it, I must purchase yet another subscription service. Enough already!!! Everyone and their uncles are subscribing me into the poor house!

So . . . I've deleted the version 5 of Tap Forms and returned to the 4.x version, which syncs using the iCloud that I already have.

If there was an option for version 5 of Tap Forms to use iCloud, then I would have given it a 5-Star rating.

If you don't mind yet another subscription service, then you can't go wrong getting Tap Forms 5.

Cloudant sync is for all intents and purposes free. They provide a generous amount of free activity that nobody I know has ever exceeded in a month period. Also in Tap Forms 5.1 I've added iCloud sync as a new sync option. Version 5.1 is currently in beta testing and I hope to release it within the next few weeks. Stay tuned!

Love version 4; 5 not so much

I am not a power user but I do use Tap Forms daily for personal, work related, and record keeping I do for a non-profit. For me iCloud syncing worked flawlessly. I upgraded to 5 at it's release and attempted to sync using both Cloudant and the local syncing option. I had no success with either. The Cloudant fees also concerned me although I did not use the service to approach $50 month fee allowance provided. I immediately returned to version 4. Not sure why iCloud syncing was abandoned but that has proven to be a deal breaker for me. Took one star away because of usability issues with version 5.

Developer Response ,

iCloud sync is coming to Tap Forms 5.1 in a few weeks time. Stay tuned!
