Don’t use for anything important
I have used this several times and I always end up loosing everything, Don’t sync for some reason it does’t backup when it says it is and then it overwrits the tables with empty ones. Sometimes you have to remove a file so it will open your tables. For me anyway in the end it just isn’t worth it. It has potential but I don’t use a computer of a phone for a toy so I can’t use a app I can’t trust.
please fix it
when i enter the data after restarting it crashes and not open again
A lot of potential but I doubt it will ever be great. This is one of very few databases for Mac that has forms although they are not very usable they ae still there and maybe some day will let the user have some control for things like tab order and what you put in them. Strangely if you change the date in the date box it just changes back to the now date. If things like this are fixed this could be a very good app but one thing I have noticed about apps for Macs is that they either start out great and get better or they start out average or below average and never get any better so I will probably just remove it. I understand there is a update coming so I might give that a try first assuming it doesn’t take a year for app store to get it.
DO NOT BUY! FAIR WARNING TO ALL. The trial worked perfectly. It did everything I needed. After the trial ran out I shelled out 25 USD for…. I guess nothing. After two weeks of daily use I started to think that this App was perfect. Shortly after adding on a “free” feature I lost EVERYTHING. Months of information down the drain, hours upon hours of labor, and finally the 25 big ones spent for this useless waste of space. After contacting the support, or trying to anyway, I’m still left with no options. Even my back ups and saved files wont open. I’ve tried redownloading it without the “free trash” nothing. I’ve even went as far as putting this onto another computer…. do I need to say it… NOTHING WORKED! So if it were possible to give this a zero rating I would. It doesnt even deserve a zero to be completely honest. UI: 0 Design: 0 Support: 0 Waste of time: 10
Won’t run anymore!
I bought iDatabase in 2012. I thought the program was very simplistic and so barely useful. So I deleted it. Then, recently, I noticed it had been updated to version 3. So I installed it and tried it again. I thought version 3 was a huge improvement and that iDatabase might actually now be a useful application. I then made the in-app purchase of $7.99 to add two useful features: the ability to add groups and smart groups. With smart groups, I could filter data very easily. So I was feeling quite positive about the program. Then, the next day, I ran iDatabase and the program didn’t recognize that I had made the in-app purchase. So I opened iDatabase’s preferences and clicked the Restore button to restore my in-app purchase. I then got a message saying iDatabase was corrupted and that I needed to delete it and reinstall it. So I deleted it and reinstalled it. I then tried to open iDatabase and nothing happened. iDatabase no longer runs at all. I’ve deleted it and reinstalled it with no luck. When I double-click on its icon in the Finder, nothing happens. Updated 3/27/15: Apimac technical support was unable to replicate the problem I’m having getting the program to run. I am still unable to use the program and nothing happens whien I double-click on its icon. I tried the non-App-store version and that won’t run either. If you have a similar problem with the program, please let them know. Right now all I can do is wait to see if an update will fix the problem. I am giving two stars because I think the program is useful when it’s working. But I almost gave it only one star, because I can’t get the program to run as I said.
