Good start but too expensive

I would probalby had paid $40 for the app but not a yearly subscription. What are they thinking? I'll stick with VirtualBox and SQL server Manager.

This works great with Access files. In fact, I had one that was supposed to be secure but this connected to it anyway. I was not able to connect to a SQL Server. I searched for a solution but found no examples of actually using this with SQL so maybe there is an issue.

Queries are pretty straight forward but there is no intellisense or any suggestions. It defaults to case sensitive.

While you can edit data the edit boxes are too small so you have scroll with the cursor if they are mutliine.

Overall, decent tool but way too expensive just to connect and query data.

Great UI

I’ve tried most of the database clients on the App Store, and the thing that sets this one apart is the very friendly query builder, which let’s me build up a large query step by step. You can jump back and forth between the query editor and the SQL editor to see the SQL that is being created. The only downside I’ve found is that bookmarking the query doesn’t seem to fill it back into the query editor when you re-exeute the bookmark, which is annoying. Also, it doesn’t seem to handle joins between tables, but it does work well on views.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the positive feedback. We are working on enhancements to the filter editor to allow the generation of joins, but do note that joins are generally supported by the app by using raw SQL.

Simple & Fast

Straightforward app for connecting to multiple databases. Seems to be one of the few with the ability to connect to Oracle. The only major shortcoming is a lack of SSH tunnel support, which I need to access my DB from outside my org’s firewall.

Developer Response ,

We are thrilled to announce that Splice 1.2 now supports SSH tunneling to most major databases, including Oracle!
