Description

Tap Forms 5 is the digital filing cabinet for life’s scattered details.

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 iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch (Mac app sold separately).

How can one app organize everything? Because not only can you use and customize the more than 30 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.

• Capture your way: Snap a picture, type or scribble some text, record an audio note, scan a barcode — 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 or a Touch ID scan, 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. One-tap exporting allows you to share with Mac, Windows, and Linux users.

Version 5.2.4

• Better support for migration of encrypted backups. If you enter the wrong key or no key at all and the backup is encrypted, you’ll get a warning now.

• Fixed bug with photo browser showing a copy of the image when you swiped to dismiss.
• Respects which fields are displayed on the Join Link to Form field from the Mac version's field selector setting.
• MONTHS() function wasn’t returning the correct results.
• Fix for adding new fields that don’t show up right after you add them requiring you to close the document and re-open it to see newly added fields.
• Fixed issue setting the date value from the month calendar view. It was including the time when it shouldn’t for regular Date fields.
• Offset record fetching now works on Apple Watch. That is, if there's more then 20 records, tapping the "Load next 20" button will properly load the next 20 records.
• Apple Watch app now shows photos when you tap on a Photo field.

I have been using Tap Forms for years for mission critical data management and it has served me very well. It is a program that has a learning curve to use the all the features and subtlety or you can use it in simple mode and track data, inventory or records quickly. When problems arise and simple restart fixes them. Like everything on a computer. Or if you need help or have suggestions emailing with Brandon the developer is always a clear win. Most responsive developer, he answers his emails with clear helpfulness

I run my entire business in this program and support tracking memberships, inventory, events, medical, accounting all of it everyday... if you need a simple data tracker this it is for you... if need a program to handle complex data bases with a million options it is for you too... Tap Forms offers some unique options the others don’t and at a cost that anyone can afford.

5 stars!!!

Unreliable, but not many options out there

Sadly, there are very few options for databases on the App Store. For three years I've been trying very hard to like Tap Forms, but it just is not usable for mission critical projects.
I tried to set up a database for daily use at work but couldn't get the Mac and iOS programs to sync. More recently, I tried to use it for house hunting. Big mistake. Fields were inconsistently implemented; pick lists were super hard to manage (at least if you have more than 20); syncing across an iPhone, iPad, and a Mac did NOT work; any time I worked offline, it kept warning me that it couldn't sync; it was a battery hog when using it all day (used 80% of my battery after 4-5 hours, when another program only used 30%).
I wish I could like it! Dev is very responsive, but apps should not require support emails constantly. Even the manual is not very helpful (e.g., does not explain what the different pick list options mean). I guess it's back to spreadsheets for me.

Best App for Field & Office use!

I have been using Tap Forms for a couple of years, and recently upgraded to v5 on the iPhone and my Mac. It’s a great combination! I use it for tracking my work in the field (I service industrial controls). For each entry, I set my arrival date, time and vehicle mileage when I get to my customers location. I’ve made entry fields for machine name & type, problem, customer contact, also fields for pictures of interest. When I enter my departure time, Tap Forms calculates how much time I have spent on-site. When I get to the office, Tap Forms on my Mac will sync with my phone and instantly I have everything on my Mac! I then use all this info for doing my billing. With Tap Forms, it’s now a piece of cake to track all my customers and their machines. Thanks for a great App!!
