Very good mid-range mobile db with free desktop app

I downloaded the lite version first, I haven't found any difference between the two yet. For $1.99, I am going to support the developer. If not for developers like this we would miss out on a lot of cool applications. It takes time to write and maintain an application.

So super good, dunno why it's still such a little known app! 2 thumbs up! It's actually much more powerful than iaccounts which is it's more famous sister app.

A really practical, well-made app!

A database app needs to be both practical and attractive enough to make you use it regularly and this app scores highly on both aspects. The free backup option for PC/Mac is exactly as presented - simple, straightforward and worked perfectly. Heartily recommended (great price too)...
Matthew, Austria

Nice & Simple

Not as fully featured as the likes of Handbase but neither is it as expensive. I found this to be very simple to use, nice icons, big font makes it easy to read. Offers date, memo, number, text fields & yes/no fields plus password protection. Simple but rather likeable and comes with free backup utility for Mac & Windows.

So easy to use

I've been using two database apps that each cost significantly more, but I was attracted by the feature of being able to edit and create records on my Mac. That feature alone makes this app worth it, but now having used this app for the past few days... WOW! It's so simple to use, yet packs a lot of functionality. Creating forms, creating records, navigating between records, and then using the information I've stored there (not to mention the nice addition of being able to use a custom icon for each record) - this app has so much use-ability, without sacrificing functionality.

Simple and definitly value for money

Excellent peace of Software.
Michael, Australia

On the right track

Not bad!
Kimone, Australia

I love it. Features way beyond its great price.

This app is a truly pleasant surprise. I was looking for an easy pocketable database manager for managing the bits of info I need to carry with me in my daily routine and I can edit all my data from my PC! The UI is very, very polished. It looks like a proper app and I love it. I have tested the backup desktop utility that comes free and it works beautifully on my Windows 7 PC. I had a couple e-mails with the company support, which answered in less than one hour (nice!). IMHO this is a great little database app at an unbelievable price. I would not compare it to apps costing 10 times more like other users did: you want more you spend more. I would definitely buy it again. A winner at a great price, definitely recommended.

It is an application that I recommend for all iPhone and iPod Touch users.
