Kase exists because it should. There should be a database app that can go anywhere with you. It should be:
• Simple — so using it should be easy and intuitive,
• Flexible — so once familiar with the basics, you can design any database to track anything important to you, and
• Relational — because you don't want to repeat yourself, and inter-linked data becomes an order of magnitude more useful.
Additionally, it should be:
• Personal — because you should not need to worry about who can peek into your data, and
• Always Available — because high-speed wireless network connection should *not* be a prerequisite for accessing your own data.
Something like that didn't exist, so I started creating Kase in 2014.
Kase is all that. It is not perfect, but it does its job well.
• Your Kase contains Boxes;
• a Box holds related Decks;
• a Deck collects Cards;
• and a Card is where you put on data entries.
• Box can be locked with a passcode, and unlocked with Face ID or Touch ID.
• Deck definitions support inheritance!
• Pick and organize Decks and Cards with categories, tags, and bookmarks.
• Highlight any box, deck, card, entry, or keyword.
• Write in Markdown and see rich formatted text.
• Use Formatters (Fx), Units to visualize data in different ways without altering the data one bit.
• Full text indexing with NLP.
• Side-by-Side: Compare Cards easily by displaying in columns.
• iPad Multitasking support: Split View, Slide Over, etc.
Kase is Not:
• Cloud syncing yet (stay tuned...)
• Data ▹ Information ▹ Knowledge ▹ Insight ▹ Wisdom
By now you should realize how valuable data is. So why give yours away? Kase keeps your data yours.

Fixes & Improvements:
* indexer could crash after backup
• library updates
• build system updates
Ratings and Reviews
Favorite easy to use database app
I tried several database apps for use in tracking information for a story I’m writing. I set up cards for characters, places, time, and events as primary data collections. An event has characters, places, and a time. The ability of Kase to allow a flexible number of characters in a given event was key to my usage needs, and most of the database apps did not make this as simple as Kase. I have secondary sets of cards that add value to a given event or person, and I can tag relationships between characters. When I’m later trying to remember if Leah was with Smith during Smith’s visit to a shop, I don’t have to go hunting through the story—I just pop open the Kase app and check. It has saved me tons of thumbing around and searching through my own writing.
It is ok
Once inheritance is established, it can’t be changed. Cards can’t move from one deck to the next or copied from one deck to the next so if you are using it to store the places of items then you can’t change the place without erasing the card and then creating it anew in a new spot. Cards can only be copied into the same deck that they are currently in...if I have movies on one shelf then I want to move it to another shelf, I have to erase a whole card with all of its information (including notes, tags, and category) and create another card entering that same information all over again....
