Ratings and Reviews

Best SQL Client for Mac

Richard Haussmann

Like most of the people reviewing this product, I’ve cycled through most of the other Mac clients in and out of the iTunes store. I’ve always had to fall back to Valentina. Valentina Studio is packed with features, so the GUI takes some getting used to. The free version has enough features to make this a primary tool for pulling queries. The pro features (which I haven’t tried) are mostly time savers and focus more on managing databases and reports. There are some other clients with a simpler interface that “feel” better but none of them seem to be able to handle the different types of databases I need to access.

Developer Response

Richard, thank you for the nice review. About simple GUI in other tools. We always open to hear:
Look guys, this action in this tool takes 3 clicks in vstudio 5 clicks. We will check and think if we can improve that action also.

Once again, thank you :)

tab cycling


I find it very productive to have the result of a query open up in a new tab; however it will be great if you can provide a combination of keys to be able to cycle through those tabs ( you already have that for the first row of tabs, like when a new sql editor opens up).

also, now that I am here, it would be useful to be enable sql script formatting when creating a view or a function script

Reponsive developer!


5.6.2 does not support PostgreSQL materialized views, but 5.7 will. Filed an issue (#6972) with the developer and they addressed it in 4 days. Amazing. Any app with developers that pay attention is worth using.

Per my original (negative) review, there’s still some frankly clumsy support for SSH Public Key authentication. But that’s easy to work around, and Valentia Studio may now become my preferred SQL IDE on OS X.
