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!

Best database solution for the Mac and iOS!!!

I have used this app on and off for at least two years now. I have used FileMaker for over 20 years and I have been looking for an alternative that syncs via iCloud. Since the latest update, Ninox now has a nice UI, and is very intuitive and easy to use so I finally made the dicision to go all in. It syncs flawlessly via iCloud, and the new attachment tab makes it very easy to add attachments to any file (PowerPoint, Excell, TIFF images, PDFs... and open them directly in Ninox (better than with FileMaker). I was also surprised that attachments sync in the background so when I ad an attachment in Ninox on my Mac, and 10 minutes later I open Ninox on my iPhone, the attachments are already there and ready to view. Although the developers have their own sync server they kept iCloud sync and did not force users to swirch. If you are looking for a database solution you can trust with your important data, that is likely to to be there for years to come, respects your choices and is committed to customer support, Ninox should be your first choice.

Hi myrick,
of course, we'll continue to support iCloud sync.
Best regards
