I can easily keep track of my miles per gallon each time I put gas in the car instead of writing it down in my book like I used to.

Works But Forced Upgrade

Classy Short Circuit's Review of General Db

Reviewed on 9/19/19 1:09 PM

I use it for recording my exercise sessions and step counts. It does what I want it too. But I added a 5th line to have more typing room, not really necessary. I didn't realize you couldn't have 5 lines unless you upgrade. When it gave me the warning about needing to upgrade, it didn't give me a choice to back out and delete the line. I couldn't even get out of the app unless I upgraded. So I was forced to pay for the upgrade in order to get out if the app to use my iZphone!

Great App

DaveiPhone's Review of General Db

I have a pretty large database with 8 tables and 10k+ rows - this runs great on my iPad and iPhone 6 sharing with Dropbox. The only thing missing for me is the ability to have the 'picker types' dynamic, For example being able to define a field as a lookup in a related table rather than a static list of picker values. - UPDATE: I found out that the picker values ARE actually stored as hidden tables (view in settings). Now I can use triggers to update these picker values dynamically based on other tables. Very cool - can almost build a complete application now. Simple Form capability would make this app complete for me. Keep up the good work

nothing but a spreadsheet with an extra location aware field

rem736's Review of General Db

Reviewed on 9/19/19 1:09 PM

i tried out this app on the developer's advice before downloading the paid version, major general db. what caught my attention was the ability to use some sql statements. so naturally I thought that it had some real database capabilities. turns out that it's just a glorified spreadsheet with the location data type glorifying the spreadsheet. if this version is like the paid version, then neither are worth your time, paid or free. the very least i expected from an app called a database (especially when sql statements are supported on the paid version) is the ability to link tables. and linking tables is not a feature on this version, so I assume that it is not available on the paid version either. this is just a list, spreadsheet, or if you prefer, a flat database. if that's all you need, then the paid version is for you. if you need to link tables, and do other things that relational databases can do, then this is definitely NOT for you.

Took a simple to use app and made a total mess in the latest upgrade, Of course after I bought the up grade!

Very cool and useful too!

I needed a way to track simple bits of data that would later help me make assumptions. This little app did the trick. Just what I wanted. I see I can export to cab which means I can share the data. Very cool and useful tool for my iPod Touch.

Needs improvement

I am giving it 3 stars because the cancel button need to be fixed and the start page needs the edit function to move the tabs around. Also needs the ability to store pictures. Other than that, the program works.

Finally...

Been looking for something like this for a while. Simple to use, easily customizable, and smartly/simply designed. I've already got a half dozen uses for this so thanks for putting it out there.

What I was looking for. States up front it's not relational, but has strong SQL abilities on a stand alone table. If you're not acquainted with SQL, get a book. For small table manipulation & query it's great.

I really like your General DB application. It solves a particular need that I've had in organizing some locations I'm looking at, with photos and Google maps. Very awesome. There are some improvements that could be made, but the developer was swift about responding and open to suggestions for improvement when I contacted him.
