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.

Advanced Features:

• Sync with Tap Forms for iOS and Mac using iCloud, IBM Cloudant, Nearby (WiFi), or with your own Apache CouchDB sync server.
• Layout designer for creating custom form layouts
• Advanced search rules with multi-field record filtering
• Lightning-fast search

• Label printing engine includes over 1,000 Avery® label templates

What's New in Version 5.2.3

• Added a "Recover deleted items" function to the File menu. Use this to recover any items recently deleted from the database.
• Fixed some more High Sierra compatibility issues.
• ComboBox style Pick List now allows tabbing out and to the next field.
• Fixed bug with database being closed prematurely upon quitting so we would lose the last value entered into the current field.
• Fixed an issue with dragging and dropping text into a Note field on a custom layout. It wasn’t saving if you quit the app or switched records.
• Fixed height of Table field spreadsheet control so there's room for a horizontal scrollbar without overlapping the last row.
• Table field sub-fields can be referenced in formulas now.
• The correct field properties are now displayed when you filter the fields.
• Fixed an issue with the Photo field getting cut off and not scrolling in High Sierra.

Customer Reviews


Ok, so the software is fantastic, but you already know that from the other reviews. What I want to talk about is the support!

The helpfullness, speed, and patience displayed by the developer is literally the best I have ever experienced. My questions have always been answered quickly and throroughly, as have follow up questions. Even when my questions were about the underlying encryption and sync systems (and in at least one occasion more based on technical curiosity than anything else), I received detailed, thoughful replies. This developer will be there for you if you have problems!

Best Database App for Mac

Tapforms is an awesome database app for Mac, iPad & iPhone. It is probably better than Microsoft Access. It is best if you have some experience with databases. If not, the instructions manual is well written and available on the Tapforms website. The technical support offered is far superior to most developers. I highly recommend Tapforms.
