I use this app every single day between a handful of servers and it's great to work with. Really looking forward to the 1.1 update.

The SSH tunneling still doesn't work with shared-keys. A little frustrating :p

I really want to like this app. It looks great, it has a good feature set, and the early adopter price is right, which is why I bought a licence some months back. But it seems that for every beta release that comes along more problems turn up with it (this one seems to have broken the CSV import again).

For years I used Navicat, and for all it's flaws (the main one being it doesn't store passwords in the keychain), it worked and it was the best option around. CocoaMySQL was around then and wasn't too bad, but didn't have the feature set of Navicat, and then of course the development of it stopped.

So when Querious came along I was truly excited. It looks Mac-like, it does most of what I need to be able to do, and it was moving forward. So I've stuck with it up until now.

The thing is, it's beta software - I accept that - so it's going to be a bit lacking, but let's not forget it is not free beta software. I can live with limitations if I know that stuff is coming, but it doesn't seem to be quick in coming.

I have submitted bug reports numerous times, and to be fair occasionally I have had a reply - but not always.

The straw that broke the back for me was the last release with broke the ability to be able to add or edit rows in the content view (to be fair though this bug was fixed quickly). Without being able to add or edit rows to query results (still), and not wanting to type out INSERT or UPDATE statements, this was the only real way to manipulate the data, and with that out of the window I needed an alternative.

That's when I looked back up Sequel Pro which had spawned from CocoaMySQL. Well, I just couldn't believe what I was seeing. Not only does it look great now, but it really flies.

Most of my database work is on hosted databases, so while my cable modem is pretty fast, I do always accept that it's not going to be super-responsive. Or at least that's what I came to expect with Querious.

Sequel Pro just wipes the floor with Querious in terms of performance. No contest.

Not only that, I can type a SQL query, and edit the result set directly. Luxury. And the CSV import works like a dream too.

So while I'm going to be keeping an eye on Querious, I'll be using Sequel Pro going forward. It's faster, it's got more features, and of course, it's free.

Lovely application.

The interface is the most intuitive (and Mac-like) for desktop or web based db clients I've seen. This beta (7.1) has been rock stable. The effortless SSH/SSL functionality alone is worth the price of admission!

If you manage MySQL databases, especially remotely, you'll love Querious

By far one of my best investments in the past few weeks. Using "Coda" for PHP coding I really needed an extra application to get my MySQL databases set up and managed. This application does a wonderful job in showingand changing my databse tables on my laptop and on my productive hosted server via SSH. Not neccessary to open up some extra port on the server.

UI is great and easy to understand. Add or change a table row? No problem. Adding a table? Or deleting a single record? Point & click! You need to replicate the databse? Just export structure and content as a file or create a MySQL statement file that can be used without Querious.

I love this application. It really saves me a lot of development time.

Very promising.
Still has a few bugs (which will be hopefully smashed down before the final release) but all in all, it's a really nice tool.
I really like the new feature to connect to a remote database via ssh.
Gonna buy it really really soon.
Keep up the good work !

I've been using Querious for about 3 weeks, maybe more. It is extremely stable. I've tried using the MySQL GUI Tools, but it was a complete joke. Navicat has a Lite version which is free and pretty nice, but the interface is quite old and a little cumbersome to use.

I am very happy with it and I really look forward to future releases. And I too would rather see Postgres than MySQL 4. Legacy DB that lacks many features compared to MySQL 5.x.

I've only been using this for a couple of days for a project requiring me to do some renovation on a MySQL database backing a Symfony project.

So far I'm very impressed. It's been stable, responsive, and mostly feature complete.

There are a couple key things missing that I hope are added shortly. A way to define the data-engine type (MyISAM is typically default, but InnoDB is what you typically have to use if you want proper normalization and constraints) on newly created tables, and I'd prefer delayed commits when new tables are created. Currently a table gets created with a default 'id' column, and subsequent elements are added through ALTER statements.

Still, overall it's an excellent tool. I'll continue evaluating it throughout the month.

Only other things I could possibly ask for based on what I've seen so far is contextual menu support for the catalogs and tables in the sources pane on the left, and PostgreSQL support would be a huge plus. I'd much rather see more effort put into supporting Postgres than MySQL 4, I very rarely encounter applications anymore as a consultant that run on MySQL 4. The lack of enforceable foreign key constrains has pushed almost everything to MySQL 5 using the InnoDB engine.
