BayCard is an easy-to-use database program that was designed to allow non-programmers to bring their own visions to life without the need to learn how to write code.
So what can you actually do with BayCard? Use it to organize your life. Or perhaps to design a presentation. You can even use it to design a simple point-and-click adventure. The best part about BayCard is that you can utilize the program in ways we never even envisioned.
BayCard was influenced by HyperCard. Like HyperCard, a BayCard document can be thought of as a stack of index cards. As a result, BayCard documents are referred to as stacks. Each stack contains a background that appears below all cards.
Unlike HyperCard, BayCard does not feature a scripting language. In place of a scripting language, BayCard features over 25 powerful interface widgets including, but not limited to, tables, lists, web pages, date pickers, and iTunes-style star ratings. All widgets are 100 percent real and, as such, your BayCard creations will look and feel just like any other aspect of the Mac experience.
To get you started, BayCard includes 11 stack templates, including: Book Collection, CD Collection, DVD Collection, Games, Medications, Notes, Recipes, Serial Numbers, Simple Presentation, To Dos, and Vocabulary. Not surprisingly, an empty “Blank” template is also included.
HyperCard is a trademark of Apple Inc.

***Great Idea but doesn't work - Unreliable ****
I thought I could by this app and it would be dependable. After desiging a stack I would go to save and the app said it could save do to an error. I spent an hour and a half making a stack tamplate and no I can't save. Very frustrating to say the least! Please fix this. I am reunning Mountain Lion.
Now this will never compeat with FileMaker or any of those big tools, but if you need a quick solution done fast and you think in HyperCard terms - this will get you going. The app hits the basics, you got a global layer, card layers, buttons that can do some basic actions. Each card stores data. I was able to throw together a quick address book for a club.
On the suport side, I did run in to a problem with the software. Reaching out to the developer I was able to pass on my problem and within days they had a fix. Over all, a well spent $2.
Cannot adjust font size. Extremely limiting and not useful
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
