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!

couldn’t be happier in spite of limited documentation

We host a house concert series, and for the first two years I managed all the artist & guest info using Excel. It was all pretty manageable until my tracking spreadsheet reached 400+ rows and 100+ columns, then I began losing sleep about messing up the format and started spending more time in the spreadsheet than I wanted to. I began looking for a *simple* database for my all-Apple environment, and saw a review of Ninox online. It took about an hour to decide to try it, and it’s been a huge time saver for me from day one (as well as letting me do some analytics I’d never have tried with Excel). Startup was simple, importing my data from Excel went smoothly after a little reading and planning, and the database synchs (99%) seamlessly via iCloud across all my devices. The only shortfall is their documentation, which I find myself needing only when I’m creating custom fields or filters, and their tech support team has been incredibly responsive. So beware the limited documentation but in spite of this limitation this is a bulletproof 5-star database.

Ninox is phenomenal

Ninox is a phenomenal databasing program that was actually designed for Mac. It was easy to program and, having come from ACT! CRM, has completely changed our business. Not only is it super capable, it was very easy to program. While some additional documentation would be appreciated, the support team was always accessible and assisted us in whatever way they could, including providing example databases. The program itself has been directly ported to iPad and is available on the web with the exact same interface and functionality, and this is unlike any other program that I have found, and a huge selling point. The sync (between a user’s devices as well as multiple users) is also phenomenal as well, and works great. Overall, Ninox is phenomenal. And made for Mac, iOS, and web, with phenomenal syncing and capabilities (including programing).
