HanDBase – a leading database app across many mobile platforms – now has an iPad version. There are not a whole lot of mobile database apps around, and this is a long-established one, with some strong features. One of my favorite things about it is that there is an online gallery for it with thousands of database designs to browse and build upon.
Here’s a little more info from the HanDBase press release:
Special features of the iPad version of HanDBase include split screen views, popovers, and enhanced editing. Like the iPhone version, there is also integration with the popular HanDBase Gallery of thousands of database designs, plus the ability to email records and databases to other users.
Desktop versions for both Windows and Mac users are available separately at DDHSoftware.com (US$9.99), but the iPad version comes with a feature called "Desktop Connect" that enables users to access databases wirelessly through any browser via the iPad’s WiFi connectivity. This feature lets users load and save HanDBase files to and from their desktops and import/export CSV files for transfer from/to other desktop applications. Additionally, the iPad version offers the unique ability to install and backup databases via iTunes cable-sync and can even install and/or merge databases received via email directly into HanDBase for iPad.
As with other versions of HanDBase, the iPad application allows users to create and edit fully relational databases on the device and includes features long-enjoyed by users: custom views, filters, sorting, reports with graphs and charting, and advanced searches, among others.
You can find HanDBase for iPad in the App Store now, priced at $9.99.
