Tutorial Description

Ninox is a simple but elegant database application for the Mac & iOS, that provides a number of pre-made database templates, as well as the option to create your own database from scratch.

Ninox allows you to create your own custom databases for storing all kinds of information, and it does it in an easy to use interface. You can create multiple tables to hold different types of information, import and export information to and from your database, and create forms and reports for analyzing, sharing and printing your database information. It also syncs with iCloud, which lets you take your databases with you no matter what device you are using.

There are two versions of Ninox: Personal and Cloud. The Cloud version provides a web version of the application, that can be accessed by multiple users and requires a subscription.

In this episode, Todd Olthoff covers the Personal version of Ninox Database.

Todd, about a year ago you made a similar screencast about Tap Forms 5. Can you say anything about the strengths and weaknesses of these two programs. Any reason to favour one over the other?


Todd Olthoff

Thanks for the comment. I would say both applications are great and it really depends on what you are looking to do. Tap Forms is a little more mature in terms of features and is more similar to Filemaker's Bento product that was discontinued and has gone beyond it in some of it's features. Ninox would be similar to File Maker Pro in terms of it's layout and focus on business with it's cloud offering, though it is still very accessible for home users as I demonstrated in the screencast. At the end of the day it comes down to what you want to do with it and which interface you like the best. I don't think you could go wrong with eithe product but I would make sure the one you choose has the features you need for your personal application. I hope that helps:).
