Former Bento User
Since FileMaker got rid of Bento and over took it with an expensive version, I could no longer trust them anymore. Since then I have tried different databases and came across Ninox. Took me a little while to figure it out as I use it for various database projects! I no longer miss Bento, so FileMaker lost a customer, and from what I have seen, many others. That’s what happens with greed! I gave this a five star because I totally enjoy using it now! Great Job Ninox! Only thing I would like to see is a lock for it. Is their one? Since many use this for business, I would think their should be. It is worth giving it a five star rating. Try it, you will like it!
Hard to learn
I have been using FileMaker Pro for over 20 years, and after reading the review on Ninox and seeing so many people remark about how they like Ninox as much as FileMaker, I decided to try it. I have spent many hours trying to understand this database, and thus far it has been nothing but frustrating. Having said that, my negative rating of this app isn’t based so much on the capabilities of the app because I have no idea what it can do; my review is mostly based on how hard it is to make any sense of this app. I have read the so-called “Manual” and the very first thing it says is “The best way to learn about Ninox is by trying.” The rest of the “Manual” is as useless as that first line. Hot garbage. So now, my $1600 Apple computer is sitting here bored while I use my 9-year-old piece of crap hp laptop because that’s where my FileMaker Pro software is and learning Ninox doesn’t seem to be worth the effort.
ought to hit the spot
Great potential with this app. Trying to set up crm, invoice, inventory, contacts, company; there are samples to work with for each and them some. The price is right for me! don’t want to pay alimony to a software database company after it gets set up and running. The support is via email; and so far very responsive. I still have a lot to learn and set but think I’ll be using it in the new year. Have tried Bento, Invoice Manager, Peachtree; reviewed Filemaker, Freshbooks, Handbase, dbase, various crms, etc..... this is a best kept secret. just don’t want to flatter too much cuz then they might realize how awesome it is and raise the price.
Heavy user; projects, journals, etc. Used many other apps; each ended with updates that either reconstructed the app (to un-usefulness for me) and / or updated and lost my data (sometimes years of data.) I have used Ninox for several years; and recently Ninox-ed my stuff from other apps. Why? Dependable. Never lost data. Many strong database features. No subscription unless team usage. Just works and is intuitive.
Works well and great support
I spent years developing big Access databases with SQL backend. I like Access so that makes me a little odd but Ninox is doing a good job. I switched to Mac and never liked my options until this. I sculpt and update from my phone, add photos and then later may use the Mac for some work, printing inventory etc. Recently found a bug in navigation and the folks in Germany had it fixed in 48 hours. If I read the manual I would likely love it more but I am busy sculpting.
Best Database anywhere
I've been searching the internet for years looking for a customizable order entry program and I was ready to spend over $20k hirIng a FileMaker programmer. I was able to build a complex Database program using Ninox that more than fits my needs. And guess what? I'm a novice, and never took a programming course. To sum it up, this is by far the easiest, simplest and most affordable Database program ever!!!! I highly recommend it.
Weak Mac Interface, Solipsistic Manual
The user interface tends to ignore fundamental Mac conventions. For example, Cmd-W does not close a window, Cmd-M does not minimize, Cmd-Z does not Undo, etc., etc. Worse, the manual seems never to have been tested on anyone who did not already know the app. The writer is substantially writing for himself. On the plus side, the video is clear. Also, the app imported Bento tables smoothly. On balance for other usage, I can't justify spending the time with this app. I have purchased an expensive lesson here, spending $35 for the app and $15 for the upgrade. But I find that Tap Forms is far more usable for my purposes.
Seems amazingly easy to use. I will be incorporating this into my window cleaning business to manage my clients and my finances and help with my taxes. So far entering customers and linking data from one table to another table is simple. I will leave a second review after I have updated all of my info into the database.
Single-user sync via iCloud is supposed to be a feature. I can’t get the files to sync reliably, and databases that appear on the desktop app ($35, thank you very much) don’t appear on the iPhone, but those on iPhone sometimes appear on the desktop app. The developer’s only solution is to sign out of iCloud, reboot, then sign back into iCloud. Doing this once, on one device was silly (and time consuming), so I’m not going to do it on multiple devices.
Works like a charm love it just wish I could figure out how to put a border around the invoice forms NICE JOB Ninox Sent an email to ask about the border was answered less than 24 hours with a solution give them a try you won't be sorry
Use Ninox at a school for building mechanical map, vehicles, and mowers. It makes my reporting at the end of the month a lot easier. Spend the money for the live subscription. It is worth it.
Needs fixes for IPhone XS
Love the product, easy to setup. Recently switched to an iPhone XS though and having a lot of trouble touching commands on the very top or bottom of the screen. For example, tapping ‘create record’ on the bottom left results in either no action or activates the iOS task manager.
I’m haven’t left many reviews on the App Store, but this app is the Bento replacement I’ve been looking for but on steroids. Somethings are a bit advanced for me, but only if you need to dive into it.
It used to work great. Put it to good use. Now, since the last update it won’t start. After updating my iPad version the iPhone version finally started to work. Need to get improve this.
For the last few months this app hasn’t worked in my iPhone. However, it works perfectly on my iPad. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled several time and I continue to only get a black screen when launching on my iPhone.
