Version 11.0.19
Review by daveycakes86

Great database GUI - Love this product. One of the best GUI’s I’ve used, and the company seems to really care about their product. It’s just a database GUI but they cared enough to incorporate the OS’s fullscreen feature when it came out, as well as upgrading the whole interface to retina. I didn’t need those things, but it’s classy. As a database GUI it has everything I want. There’s a more expensive version without “Essentials” in the title that confuses me, because this has everything I need as a power user already.
