Ninox is much easier to use than other relational databases + the colors and icons make working fun.

2017-12-18

a mobile organisation tool for everywhere, tailored to my needs, was something I was looking for for a long time.

Pros

In this case: the mobile can be used to generate data - but without changing the data model - what seems reasonable.

Cons

the manual must be searched on the ninox homepage.

I spent a LOT of money trying every database app available for iPad. This is THE one!

2017-11-07

A database that works according to my design, needs and preferences.

Pros

I can keep all my data local.

Cons

Still waiting for security on iPad so I can set permissions for other users of the same data - hide sensitive data and prevent edit/deletions.

effortless creation of databases of any kind, including mobile data collection

Pros

best product and value for money for databases on iOS, I've been searching for a product like ninox for years, and am glad I found it.

Cons

Documentation is insufficent, have to search for required information / no manual // no Windows app available, would be nice, but not necessary, as there is web access

Stand-alone, Multi-User, iCloud, Cloud, Private / On prem .. offline sync... It has it ALL

2019-08-07

I have built workflow style applications to manage SOWS / Contracts, Customer Relations, "Getting Things Done (GTD)" style Task Management (I believe the phrase is TradeMarked by David Allan), IT Product Standards Mangement with REST/API interface to Technopedia, Bakery Orders, and yes.. my "first" application was a Bingo Game with random number generator to simulate the "Bingo Ball" drops.

Pros

The platform is very flexible and the REST/API is a huge plus for me.

Cons

On most of my applications, I add "buttons" to save/close the record so I can add data consistency logic (in global functions as must as possible).

Great, intuitive way to build databases without "programming" knowledge

2018-02-08

Easy to capture and evaluate data.

Pros

Ease of use, intuitive nature of the interface is great.

Cons

Poor documentation / help; need more examples, more examples related to specific functions. Despite no need to know coding, would like to learn so need more examples of how each function works.

2018-09-16

Today, Ninox v2.4 gives me a central point to coordinate the activities, common data of all my cloud based processes including: QuickBooks Online, G-Suites for Business, MailChimp, RingCentral, and Asana.

Pros

Ninox has the power of a multi-relation, multi-platform, mobile, scriptable database.

Cons

A Ninox record is entered when it is created. Adding data to it is an update.

Andrew Smith

Looked for a Mac OSX database, syncing over iCloud, and accessible on the web. This fitted exactly.

2018-02-15

Pros

Initially purchased to help manage all aspects of a large international academic conference - abstract submissions, registrations, attendance by different groups at different activities, checking in, personalised information handouts.

Cons

Huge (and increasing) number of features - customisable to the extreme - needs a bit of time investment to get to the bottom of some features, but worth it in the end.

I was able to organize my activities much more easily and logically.

Pros

Its ease of use, its simplicity, versatility, processing speed, is really friendly. I liked the new capabilities with the new version of IOS 11.0. They are always improving it, it is also very stable. I am very happy with the product.

Cons

I would like to have more capacity to display information in the columns in the impressions area Better integration with the calendar and that you could see more information from the calendar and incorporate alerts such as icons and colors for example.

Life changing :-)

2019-08-16

He has done a fantastic job creating something that tracks multiple factors and is usable by staff with minimal training and IT skills.

Pros

Back at the hospital when we get a good Wi-Fi signal the database synchronises automatically. This is pretty neat, we don't get data corruption or issues common with other products when duplicate data is input from different sources.

Cons

Also sorry we wasted time looking at alternatives.

Love the product and the easy use of making my own application!

2017-10-11

We use it every day for keeping records for our spray work. Maps, Chemcial lists, mixing ratios, log hours on helicopters and planes.

Pros

The ability to customize almost every part of the program. From start to print view. The added signature field is nice so that we can have security in agreeing with our customers to save them and us from legal issues.

Cons

Little better design controls in print view.

Ninox: Outstanding Support

2020-02-20

I started to work out solutions for my existing registers and catologues with mixed data. Data import was very easy but adding structure looked like a never ending task.

Pros

As I announced in my title of this short review I would point out the excellent support of users/customers: Short response time, friendly, useful and really giving help.

Cons

At the first glance Ninox is very easy to handle but doesn't give you a good impression of the possibilities to customizing and working out individual solutions by its programming language "NX".

2017-11-02

Team integration and updating of data.

Pros

I also like the fact its on a secure platform, removing a data protection issue from our office.

Cons

Trying to get to grips on how to integrate formulas, I also wish there was more flexibility with the Calendar, we have 90 odd consultants and when we put all of their project dates in its more or less unusable as a graphical representation of their busy and free periods.

Very Pleased with Ninox

2018-12-05

I am building a DB for friends to replace "ShrinkRapt". So far, I have been successful in implementing the needed features.

Pros

This is not an application, but a data base program so there is a short learning curve.

Cons

The user manual needs to be more comprehensive.
