Excellent Functionality — Horrible UI
I tried to use this program because I was looking for a relational database less intense than Filemaker but better designed and more stable than Tap Forms. I though I’d found it in Ninox but I was wrong. The *excellent* functionality of this program is crippled by a half-baked, clunky and completely unusable UI.
There are virtually no keyboard commands, navigation between different databases is torture with many mouseclicks to accomplish what should really take just one to do. There are very few buttons and widgets to close windows, forms and tables. Instead one is forced to use the mouse and click around for nearly EVERY SINGLE interaction.
Actually USING the program to create and use a database is so unintuitive, frustrating and unforgiving that I’ve asked Apple for my money back. It’s way too bad becuase from what I can tell the database functionality is very good, it’s been stable, full-featured and syncing with iOS works perfectly. I just can’t have such a poorly designed, clunky program for everyday use. Company needs to hire a professional interface designer and they’d give Filemaker some badly needed competition.
