Ratings and Reviews
A simpler Filemaker at 5% of the cost
I’ve been looking for a replacement for Filemaker for years after constant frustration with backwards incompatibility with earlier vesions. A few years back I thought Bento was the answer. But the Filemaker product was disastrously slow and clunky and was taken off the market almost as quickly as it entered. Records is a fast and incredibly simple database to use. It’s very easy to create your own databases or use the many templates created for you. This is not an app for large organizations that need network connectivity and all the bells and whistles of an enterprise platform, but if you just need a non-networked and incredibly simple database for one computer, this is a great app. So why 4 stars and not 5? Records is missing 2 key elements. All of your data in Records gets buried in a Library file, well hidden from the world. So you can’t place the database in the cloud such as Dropbox and then access it from another computer. So even though you can install the app on more than one MAC, you can’t access one database on both MACS. Secondly, there’s no iPad or iPhone version of the app. This would be the perfect replacement for Filemaker and Bento if these 2 deficiencies were eliminated. I would pay 4 to 5 times the price if they were.
Missing one vital feature
Four star review. Would be 5 but there is no way to sync. In fact, the data is stored in the library, it doesn’t even make files except as an export. So, it’s a one computer, no sync to another affair. That’s a near fatal issue in this day and age. That problem aside, it’s fantastic! You can view ‘excel’ style or record by record in a form of your own lay out. Super easy and convenient. I have’t stored too much data in it yet (because of the sync issue) but it hasn’t lost anything yet. I like it a lot. Gives me really useful features, and doesn’t bog me down with too much. I haven’t worked too much with the math. I don’t know if it can, for example, sum two fields into a third. If it can’t do that it really needs that too.
All in all, a good prodect that I’m hoping to see some improvment in.
Good Product, Needs Works
The basic concept of this system is great. I’m able to search up any criteria and it come up with the list of objectives as needed that I was looking for. It has a somewhat limited ability however in that the database that you create is limited to only the app and what is clearly there in the toolbox. For instance, my clients need to have a product changed every 6 months. I am not able to create a reminder or a widget in the toolbox that says “client is due for a change”. As a basic database this app works fine, which is why I give it 4/5 stars. I would like to see more features available that are interactive to the user.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
