Ratings and Reviews
Simple file handler with a few bugs.
I've used Bento, Tap Forms, & HanDBase, looking for a decent data management app for my iDevices. Bento and Tap Forms are both simple flat file apps except Tap Forms' current version gives a token nod to table linking with a Link To Form field that allows you to summarize child records to a parent record. It does utilize icloud syncing which seems to be semi-automatic. Record changes are not automatically synced to icloud, rather a sync must be initiated by the user. Changes on other devices are then automatically updated the next time Tap Forms is opened (as long as the device can touch the Internet). The ability to pass info rather easily to Numbers is a definite plus. Some bugs kept locking me out of inputting data if i rotated the iDevice. Had to restart the app repeatedly due to this bug. All that said, HanDBase is about twice as expensive, and about ten times more functional. I was able to replicate all the basic features of our hospital's work order/asset management software. There is no other DB app on the App Store that could have accomplished anything close to that short of FileMaker Go and purchasing the desktop FileMaker Pro application to set up your database tables.
P.S. - This review applies. To the full version of Tap Forms. I upgraded in-app to the full version from the lite one, but the AppStore won't allow me to rate the full version in spite of the upgraded lite version being functionally identical.
Fantastic flexible and reliable
As others have said in the reviews for the upgraded version of this app, the developer Brendan is extremely responsive and diligent, and always looking to learn how his customers are using the app and improve it for their needs. I use this to keep livestock health records, inventories, harvest logs, rainfall, any kind of historical data or media that I want to track I can build my own little database for, and reference it easily. It is especially effective if you’re doing fieldwork and you want to quickly create a record. If you’ve already set up your form it can be much faster than writing in a notebook and then the data is already available for you to pull into a spreadsheet instead of having to copy your notes. It is flexible but very easy to use. You can even have the form make calculations for you, for example enter the birthdate of an animal on the form and then I can have another field that automatically populates the current age of the animal.
Having trouble signing in
Love the app, use it all the time. But for awhile now it takes 2-3 attempts to sign in before it gets me in. I put in the password and it goes back to the home screen of my phone. After 2-3 tries I get in. Can anything be done?
