Tap Forms is a very powerful organizational tool designed to help you keep track of all your life's most important information.

+++ Mac Format Magazine (March, 2014) - Simple to use Databases:
"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."

+++ Tap Forms for iPhone, iPad and Mac each sold separately +++

Use Tap Forms to track your inventory at work and manage your household items at home. Great for insurance and accounting purposes! It's even great for managing your holiday gift lists.

If you're a master chef in the kitchen, you can use Tap Forms to manage your entire library of delicious cuisines.

Are you a movie buff but you have too many movies to keep track of? That's easy, since Tap Forms can help you categorize, rate, and manage your entire movie collection. Never forget who you've lent your movies to ever again.

And with built-in support for iCloud, now you can keep all your Tap Forms data on your iPhone and iPad in sync with your Mac. So when you're out at the store trying to remember if you already own a copy of The Terminator, just look it up on your iPhone using Tap Forms for iOS!

Speaking of looking up stuff, Tap Forms now has Saved Search Rules. With Saved Search Rules, you can create any number of filters that helps you find and sort through thousands of pieces of information as quickly as you can tap a button. It's your data just the way you want, in an instant!

Excellant LITE replacement for MS Access

I have been searching for a lite app that would replace MS Access for over a year. I had just found out about Bento the week they discontinued it. So, I found this app reviewed on a Mac revew website, and decided to give it a try.

So far I have successfully imported a CSV file that I exported from MS Access.
The forms in Tap Forms are simple, and easy to create. The search feature is basically a watered down type of SQL statement, so you can drill-down into your records and save the “searches” (queries) quite easily.

The form layout editor is very functional. Overall, I am quite satisfied, and I have actually said out loud “This is great, exactly what I was looking for!”

There is a lite ability to link forms, which makes this a functional relational database, apparently similar to what Bento used to be.

If a $300 filemaker pro isn’t in your budget, and you’re sick of running VMWare or Paralells for just one application (MS Access,) then take a look at this. I’m glad I did.

The only thing holding me back from a perfect 5 stars is the reporting feature seems somewhat lacking - it appears you can set up a form for the printer, but then it prints one record per page. If I’m wrong, and I can print multiple records per page I promise to come back and give 5 stars!

Great App with Excelent Support

I have had Tap Forms for a while on my iPhone and iPad. I recently bought it for the Mac.

Alone the iPhone App was good, together they are excellent.
You can organise your data the way you want, and no limit on the number of fields.
No other database program comes close, definitely not for this cost.

Even better than the App is the Support. I was having an issue with the encryption. The eMail support did not stop till I was fully satisfied.

Its not a dead app!!! They also keep coming with good improvements.

Strong Performer - Very Powerful

I use the iPad, iPhone, and Mac versions together to run my business. I’m a field archaeologist and TapForms has allowed me to save 10s of thousands of sheets of paper on field recording and I don’t know how much money in the office on digitizing those forms. TapForms is easy to use, very customizable, and the ability to transfer forms and records in the field with bluetooth, when WiFi and cell service are miles away, is invaluable. Keep up the great work!
