Your digital filing cabinet for life’s scattered details. Now with iCloud Sync!

Accounts, recipes, expenses, inventory — life is full of things that we don’t want to forget or misplace. Tap Forms 5 helps you organize all kinds of things in one place — secure, searchable, and accessible on your Mac (iOS + Apple Watch app sold separately).

How can one app organize everything? Because not only can you use and customize the 33 built-in templates but you can create your own “forms” for inputting any kind of information, even if that information includes pictures, doodles, audio recordings, calculations, file attachments, ratings, or even links to other forms. This makes it almost like building your very own customized organization app.

+++ Mac Format Magazine (March, 2014) - comparing Tap Forms to other organizational programs:
"Tap Forms is the clear winner by a mile. The user interface is beautifully Mac-like, the structuring of data is similar enough to Bento that it offers only a shallow learning curve, it offers a direct import of Bento templates, and the iOS companion app is great."

• Capture your way: add a picture, type some text, attach a file — there are 23 different types of information that can be captured with Tap Forms.

• Organize your way: Create and design custom forms exactly how you want to for optimal organization. Get started with one of our ready-to-go form templates, or easily make a custom one from scratch with our integrated form building tools.

• Store confidential data with confidence: Tap Forms' security settings let you optionally require a password, and even auto-lock when idle for a custom period of time. Using AES encryption, you can rest easy knowing your data is safe and secure.

• Import, Export, Share: It’s easy to import your data from existing files, so getting started is a breeze. Import your data from text, CSV, Bento and more. Exporting allows you to share with Mac, Windows, and Linux users.

• Sync with Tap Forms for iOS and Mac using iCloud, IBM Cloudant, Nearby (WiFi), or with your own Apache CouchDB sync server.

Nice database, bargain for the modest cost...

Tap forms-5.22.. I have been using TF-5 for a short time, after using TF-3, I like a number of others, have been looking for a replacement to the FileMaker Pro database. Of the databases that I have evaluated TF-5 is about the best option available, if your needs don’t exceed it’s capabilities. For the modest cost, TF-5 is a bargain. It’s easy to use interface makes it quick to configure custom records, and fields, and it’s similar to FileMaker Pro. I encountered a number of small bugs, some relating to the current High Sierra upgrade. I contacted support by email several times about things that I found, and also asked a number of questions over a week or so. Support response from this vendor is some of the best I have seen. Support was very prompted, and helpful. I only wish FileMaker’s support was this good. A nice program, with fanatic support, and a bargain for the modest cost.
