I get a bug in 1.5.8, in the latest lion.
It happens frequently -- suddenly the content will no longer scroll when I try to scroll. The row numbers and the scrollbar update properly, but the content itself is frozen in place, although I can still edit it.

I bought Tables about 2 years ago and still get free updates. It works fast and good and opened up all my excel and csv files. Never had a problem with it.

So I was a bit shocked to see a 1/2 star. So here's my rating after 2 years usage. All 4 stars (because shure there are some rare Excel files that can't be opened). The calculating options could be a bit easier to explain. But it never crashed.

Tables is a brilliant app. Fast, reliable, nice to look at, with clever features like showing calculation links across cells in color, etc. I looked and looked for a food spreadsheet (Mesa doesn't work, NeoOffice is very slow, Numbers is weird, Mariner is ugly). I missed Tables because the description on MacUpdate isn't very good and it's not immediately clear it's a spreadsheet. One request to the developer: please add a few icons at the top. There's plenty of room! I miss an icon for copy/paste style, move decimal point right/left, insert/delete column/row. Also, I can't find any way to box or underline cells. Other than that, this is very good. I'm still on the 30-day trial deal but I'll definitely buy this app!

Tables is one of my most favourite apps. It's easy to use, fast (unlike the sloooooow Apple Numbers), lean and reliable (unlike that other app from Microsoft, regarding both lean AND reliable).
The developer is most helpful and responds quickly.
So keep up the good work, thanks.

First there was Mesa, then there was Numbers...and I dumped Numbers fast for Tables. For me, Tables is far superior when it comes to managing huge amounts of data (especially multiple-sheet spreadsheets), and it's incredibly easy to use. The program seems to be developing well, and the developer is, as has been stated before, highly responsive. This is, hands down, the best spreadsheet I've yet used for OS X.

Tables is constantly improving and the developer has been very responsive to issues. In just a few months it has gone from usable to excellent. Tables is also very stable for me. The last crash I had was due to an Input Manager and not Tables.

Excel compatibility has been pretty good, with no problems sharing files with Windows Excel users.

Like many, I bought iWork 08 as soon as it came out. Numbers is a slick application (reminds me of an old Mac Spreadsheet called Trapeze) and overall I like it. But Tables is much faster when using lots of data and overall feels more responsive. I often use Tables with data extracted from databases as CSV files to "massage" and analyze the data and assorted other such needs. Tables is better then Numbers for actually crunching numbers and data. Try importing a 23401 row / 33 column CSV file into Numbers and hear your MacBook Pro fan kick into overdrive for a while...

Numbers is great for presentations, where you have a limited amount of information that is usually going into Pages or Keynote. In some cases I will crunch data in Tables, and then copy/paste results of that into Numbers for use in Keynote.

Oddly enough, Tables also has more control over the formatting of cells, particularly numbers.

In my toolbox, there is a place for both and I for one am super happy to never use Excel again. The cost of Tables and iWork together is still cheaper then getting MS Office and provides a much better experience for the user.

Very Mac-like spreadsheet application. However, it did crash a lot with my Excel worksheets. The more complex they are, the less likely Tables can cope. With Apple's Numbers just weeks away I'm going to wait before making a decision. However, if Numbers won't be in the iWork package I think Tables might be a good alternative to Excel. If only the crashes would be fixed and compatibility improved.

Apple has made no public announcement of that product so it's only a rumor (maybe based at least on the trademark registration?) unless you're privy to information that's intended to be kept private.

I always used non-Excel programs out of principle for home use (Mesa, Mariner), but this one I use because I really prefer it.

Great app!

Tables is lean, fast, easy to use and runs stable. Bugs are fixed very quickly (thanks again Daniel). Smooth collaboration with Excel, importing from and exporting to Excel is very satisfying. It's totally great to work with Tables.

Tables has really improved since it was first released. Over the past couple of months, it has become my spreadsheet of choice. It's fast, starts instantly and works great with MS Excel documents.

Excel workbooks, formulas, formatting, etc all appear just fine. Most of the Excel documents I use and share are not terribly complex, but I haven't had any issues with other Excel (OSX and Windows) users.

Tables development is moving along well and continuously getting better and worth the price. The developer is also very responsive to his users.

I found a bug when moving cells with formulas. It ended up giving me an error with an option to undo that will not go away no matter how many times I press undo.

I like the look of the app and hope it takes off, but agree that interoperability with Pages is required. I still would not attempt to use this as a heavy lifter given that I got this type of error within the first 3 minutes of use.
