Panorama Rocks! - Panorama is a true jewel of Macintosh software. The developer has been in Mac software from the very beginning - 1984. This product, including its direct predecessor OverVUE, has been aggressively developed and supported for almost 30 years! The intelligence, care, quality, and maturity show. On a basic level, databases are programs to store lists. Many people use spreadsheets for this purpose. But true databases are often the right tool for the job. In fact, few people look back at spreadsheets after experiencing a true database like Panorama. Panorama is easy and approachable for beginners. "The database that thinks it's a spreadsheet." You can start getting things done without reading lots of manuals. A true database program, Panorama can take you far beyond spreadsheet programs. This is a wonderful thing. If you want to do get more out of your computer than simply viewing other people's content, Panorama is perfect. It is easy as a first grade teacher, but as thoroughly professional and competitent as the U.S. Marine Corps -- this is software is tough enough to make men out of boys. You can grow with the Panorama family of software - it can take on the toughest missions. I've been using Macintosh since the very beginning. I have no affiliation with ProVUE Development, except satisfied customer. I've purchased far more software than most people will ever know exists. But in all my years using computers, no other software approaches the value I've received from Panorama. Panorama Sheets is a great introduction to databases, a fundamental cornerstone category of computer software. Anybody who wants to use their computers to get real work done should get started now with Panorama Sheets, a great first step into the full range of Panorama database software - an extended family that can grow into fully professional systems including multi-user database systems and enterprise class servers. Panorma is certainly the best money I have ever spent on software!

Confused -is this some elaborate hoax? - I'll admit that I was hoodwinked into purchasing this applications because of all the five star reviews. I was excited - Database with all the ease of use of a spreadsheet, so perhaps I purchased too quickly. After downloading it, the first thing I wanted to do was migrate one set of my files from Excel over to Panorama, so as to both make it more cleanly BCNF and, most importantly, make it a shared database. After spending about two hours, using the App, and reading the instructions, I've come to the conclusion that "Panorama Sheets" is a well executed, but very minimal subset of Microsoft Excel functionality, and by subset, I'm talking about 10-15% of what I use on Excel each day to evaluate data. The application is touted as "relational" - but I could not find any way to set up a relational database. Indeed, searching in Help got me pointers to MySQL and Filemaker Pro. It seemingly has no concept of multiple users - which eliminates pretty much any concievable value you would find in this versus a spreadsheet. You can't even create a Data Entry Form - which is technology from 1990 - the entire application feels like some elaborate (but well executed) Hoax. It is worth maybe $2.99, but a complete ripoff at $39.99. I would highly, highly recommend not wasting the $40 I just spent, and go download the free trial. See for yourself if this does _anything_ that the spreadsheet program you already own doesn't do. Sometimes I make bonehead application purchasing decisions. This is one of them. See if you can learn from my mistake.

Sheets - A fast, convenient database - Great for managing lists. Good searching. Like the installation through the App Store. I like that Sheets is a full application which lets you get work done. This is the full version which will work well for most users. There is another application Panorama for advanced forms, and more programming, but Sheets does all of the list managing I need. Thanks for this app, and the App Store.

Review by Bob Ross1952

What a huge disappointment. - What a huge disappointment. In reading the reviews, people either love it or hate it. I fall into the “I’ve learned to hate it category”. I am running of the current version of Mavericks, Sheets has crashed at least 10 times. I lost data once, my sheet is only a couple of hundred records along and has 20 fields. I cannot seem to make it print in color to my Brother Color laser printer. The column headings do not line up inside the column boxes in the top row. I’ve tried 10 different fonts and font sizes. This occurs on both my Mac Pro and my MacBook Pro. I’ve tried to use their website to see if others are having similar problems. Does not display anything at all when I selected advanced search. All these problems that exist on two different computers, I’ve tried Safari, Google, Firefox. I can't even seem to post to the forum, after I joined it. Mack software should not be this hard to use - I give up. Bob Ross

Review by Retired & poor

Sheets ain't your father's spreadsheet! - I've been keeping data in Excel and Numbers. These are great for crunching numbers, but I want to crunch text. Panorama Sheets got my attention. The list of "Key Features" in the App Store description was too technical for me. So, I went to ProVue's web site and watched the demo movie. I took the plunge. Test 1: Created a new Sheets database. In Excel, selected some data and dragged it to Sheets. Waited several seconds. Some of my Sheets column (field) names didn't match my Excel column names. Sheets displayed a window where I dragged Excel columns to Sheets columns. TaDa! I had over 1500 rows (records) in Sheets with no typing. (I'm lazy.) Test 2: Sorted five columns at once. Picked "Sort Multiple Columns". Picked columns. Clicked "Sort". Done before I released the mouse button! Tried other sort combinations. Each took less than a second. Test 3: I walked through and tried the menu items. Many items use dialogs, which are pretty easy to understand. Will have to read the manual for some. Selected last name sounds like "smythe". It selected Smythe, Smyth and Smith. A solution looking for a problem? Also discovered that right clicking on column names and cells often displayed even more tools to change or view data. Example; Change text to numbers Time to browse the manual, which is almost 400 pages long! Explains lots of tools with lots of pictures. I think I'll start with only a few. I flipped through the "Data Manipulation" section. Wow! I can see using "Extract Between" to format phone numbers. Don't think I'll have to "strip out all HTML markups". Geeks may use more. Perhaps, Sheets will be my solution to text crunching.
