Clearly a work in progress

This appears to be a one man show and if the developer loses interest, goodbye support.

the best PostgreSQL GUI on mac

i’m using Sequel for about a month now and I think this is the best GUI for the mac available right now! tried a few other apps, but their interface was sluggish and not very intuitive… what i also like in this app is its speed and the fact it took me just a few minutes to connect securely over SSL to my databases and check the table views. i also loved the poweful editor and the console logging window. while looking for a functionality i was missing, i got in touch with their support and heard back from their main developer who shared a very long list of feautres coming in the next version, including the one i was asking for! definitely a good investment in a very nice and native mac GUI which comes at an affordable price, comparing the alternatives

So Far So Good

Just downloaded this app to evaluate its suitability in a development environment. It took only a few minutes to get a handle on the GUI, which is not totally unlike Apple’s Xcode layout. I was able to connect to my remote PostgreSQL server via SSL without issue. Even after a couple of hours use, the connection is still solid and responsive, with queries retruning results in the expected amount of time. I have several years experience with PostgreSQL and Oracle before that. To me, this app shows promise, and is perfectely usable even at it’s current early version. Are there minor issues I could complain about? Yes, but none are deal killers. Overall, the early impression is that it's solid and comprehensive. I also have a few of the other Postgres admin apps, and this app seems to be at least on par if not better than most. I will definitely be giving it a chance to prove its mettle in my daily developer duties.
