Good database, not-so-good documentation

I’d give this app five stars if it was documented properly. It is a capable, general-purpose database. It won’t do real heavy lifting (like FileMaker Pro), but it will handle the needs of most small-to-medium size businesses. Its only real problem is a lack of proper documentation, which gives the impression that the developer is good at programming, but not really up to professional standards, as far as documentation goes.

I have used relational databases for years, from dBase 3 to SQL Server, and I am pretty comfortable creating and maintaining databases. I am finding myself able to learn the app, but it is taking me about a week of evenings just to figure out how the app does things. And that’s a shame, because once I figure out an area of the app, I do like their approach. So, I can only recommend this ap on a qualified basis. Those unfamiliar with relational databases will probably have a tough time figuring out how to use this app, and even old SQL hands are likely to invest more time than they would like learning it.

Best $35 I've spent in a long time

Before this week, I had been using Excel to keep track of a long list of locations with a bunch of columns, but I finally cracked -- just too much horizontal scrolling in Excel -- and started looking for database soltuions. I had used FileMaker many years ago for a similar project, but I knew that the current version is expensive and almost certainly overkill for what I'm doing. (I just needed the ability to enter data, and to import and export CSV files for use in a web app.) I found Ninox in the App Store from a Google Search and took a chance, and I'm very glad I did. I was up and running in under 30 minutes, without reading instructions. (I eventually did need to read some of the online documentation for a few import/export things, but that was a quick process.) If you're familiar with database schemas, most of the features are pretty clear. I wouldn't say it's for newbies, but you don't need much database expertise to use this, and you don't need SQL experience. Knock on wood, the app has been very stable -- I've had zero crashes, and the CSV files I've imported and exported have worked perfectly. It's also quite speedy on my 2015 MacBookPro running High Sierra. Highly recommended!

Extremely Limited

On the positive side, it is a relational database that will do the basics, and databases can be used across devices through iCloud, but it's missing a lot of essential features. On the desktop version, there is no way to adjust the font size for most fields; only formula fields enable adjusting font size. (Note: There seem to be some options for adjusting font size in the online version according to the forums, but you should not have to pay a monthly subscription fee just to show data in a readable font size.) Layout control is close to nonexistent, so there is no way to create attractively organized custom forms. It takes more than the ability to insert extra line breaks or headings to create custom forms. Sorting list displays by more than one field, such as by author and then title for a book database, requires creating custom fields with formulas for sorting, then creating "views" based on those fields. The documentation is very poor. I could go on, but the short of it is that I used more flexible database programs in Windows 3.1. I'm using it because Filemaker has become prohibitively expensive for the personal user and Microsoft Access is not available for macOS, but I'm constantly frustrated by its limitations.
