Review by MPaulaR

Great value database - How I’m using it: - Single user - Database used for document management of a medium company’s ISO certification. I’m tracking documents, the relationship between the documents, status of documents and tasks associated with the documents in order to pass an audit. (8 tables) - I have background creating relational databases Pro’s - Ease of use - Small footprint — zippy - Responsiveness of support team - In the current version, huge navigation and printing improvements — Thank you :-) - Price Con’s - Documentation At this time, I haven’t attempted to make this into an application other users could use, so I don’t know if that’s inside/oustide the scope of this product.

Version 2.1.1
Review by drmorgan

Not ready for prime time. - I am an experienced user of relational databases. Yet Ninox was frustratingly confusing to me, primarily, as it turns out, because it hides its limitation behind happy talk about simplicity. The support was great until I sent them a screen shot of nested tables that their interface offers to the unwary user as a means to populate a many-to-many database. There appears to be no elegant way to table-hop, via portals or otherwise. I think the concept of a low cost alternative to Filemaker is appealing. Bento (from Filemaker) was not really powerful enough (not relational) and was dropped. Ninox is relational and could be powerful but the interface makes it unusable. I juat hope my $35 investment will pay off someday, but I doubt the company will admit to the defects and fix them before they go belly up. You’re better off with a dedciated database for a specific need. Or, if you want to create your own, try to get an educational discount on Filemaker, and then resist the optional yearly upgrade fees that they extract from the professional users. Then read up on using a join table for many-to-many relationships with related fields elegantly displayed in a portal on your custom layout. You will be very happy with that. You will not be happy with trying to do that in Ninox – because you can’t.
