crashkaboom's Review of Sqlpro For MssqlReviewed on 3/10/20 1:43 PM
I purchased this app back when it was young and limited as an alternative to SQuirrel SQL. I’ve recommended it as a great native query analyzer to many coworkers over the years but always with a few important caveats, including but not limited to: the lack of streaming results, the lack of “SCRIPT TO” context menus, the clumsy connection screen (return not working as a shortcut), and awkward intellisense. All of these issues seem to be addressed now, and I’m a very pleased user. Crashes were few and far between in the past, but I haven’t had any freezeups or crashes with this latest version. The author is quick to respond to issues/bugs/feature requests in product's message board and/or emails. The UI keeps getting better each release and in my opinion, it’s very close to a lite* SQL Management Studio replacement. My only complaint is the price seems a bit too high for a query analyzer that only handles SQL Server databases and lacks more robust debugging and optimization features, but otherwise, it’s a great app. * obviously this app lacks a large majority of SSMS’s advanced features, but it’s a solid tool for query analyzation and editing tables, views, functions and stored procedures

Unable to actually browse data, since that's a paid freature. Don't be fooled - this is not a free app, this is a trial version. Cost is PER YEAR, not one-time cost.

I paid $50 and I can’t modify stored procedures? I want my money back!

This is a great peice of software it’s nice to have a native solution for MSSQL on a mac machine. So I too had the problem of it not wanting to install from the App Store, I download the trial software from the developers website, upon purchasing this I too experienced the stuck in waiting behavior it’s not an issue with the software more of launch pad. Here is how I corrected it 1. Open LaunchPad a. find the app hold option key so the (x) is displayed, click on it answer yes to the do you want to delete 2. If you downloaded the trial make sure to remove from /Applications or where ever you installed it to 3. Reboot your mac, this clears the caches 4. Launch App Store, goto Purchase -> Select your item -> click install At this point it should install correctly Great developer, I have spoken with the developer a numerous amount on times, asking questions, reporting bugs if found, etc, to which the developer is very responsive and more than willing to help. I wasn’t expceting to get an email back the same day I send a contact email, but within 20 minutes I had a response with an answer that solved my problem and in a very professional manner. I would defenitly do business with them again on some of their other products.

If I try to open user defined table data types the app crashes every single time. It really kills the productivity of the app for me. Fix this and I will give it a 5 star review.

Very good bargain for its price. It is basically a simplified MSSQL Studio. I much prefer this to work with a remote MSSQL server than dial in with RDP and use MSSQL Studio Manager on Windows. It contains the most needed functions, like access to tables/columns/last X rows, queries etc. Good enough for 95% of the things I need to do when developing/testing. Recommended.

In a nutshell everything seems to work quite well and being a native app, the user experience is very nice. The previous version (the version which I had purchased) had some bugs but was still adequate. However, this version works so well that I will no longer startup a VM and use a Windows based SQL client (usually Microsoft Management Studio) but I will instead only use SQLPro and stay within the comforts of MacOS :-)

If all you need is to run very simple SELECT queries this will do the job. I will have to agree with the previous reviewer. This works as far as presenting a wrapper around FreeTDS which I’ve used several times before in Linux machines. Being able to save and load SQL queries should be one of the first components written but that feature seems to be completely missing. That will be a deal-breaker for many people that need to do actual work rather than random simple queries. An annoyance is not being able to press F5 to execute a query. Intellisense should be on full-time or at least configurable to toggle between full-time and on demand via key press.

Works fine for most things but - I can only start or stop agent jobs. I can't use certain link servers due to permissions issues that SSMS doesn't have an issue with.

Love this sql client. Easy to use, authenticates with Windows Authentication, and allows you to be just as productive as your windows machine using co-workers. Additional updates like dark mode support for the current version of MacOS was a nice touch as well. Worth every penny.
