Personal database software.

Overview

Symphytum is a personal database software for everyone who desires to manage and organize data in an easy and intuitive way, without having to study complex database languages and software user interfaces.

Design input forms. Move and resize fields thanks to the dynamic layout engine. Use text, numbers, images, files and other control fields. Put your data in the cloud to enjoy hassle-free automatic synchronization on all your computers.

Take the easy way. Manage your data, from club membership to stamp collection, with Symphytum.

Features:

Fields: Not Just Text
Design your input forms with support for different data types: text, numeric, date, progress, image, file list, checkbox, combobox, etc.

Two Views On The Same Data
Use the form view for structured data input and representation, use the table-like view for searching, sorting and comparing.

Integrated Cloud Sync
Using Symphytum across multiple computers is a joy. Your data is always automatically synchronized everywhere. Drivers for cloud services such as Dropbox are included.

Sync Conflict Management
Symphytum manages synchronization conflicts for you. While only one session with write access is allowed at the same time, other computers may access the database in read-only mode during an open session.

Date Reminder
Date fields keep you informed on tasks, appointments or birthdays, if requested. All Reminders, once triggered, are listed in one place.

Future Plans:
Great improvements and features are continuously implemented and delivered through updates. Expect enhanced export/import and print functionality, new field types and a Symphytum app for mobile devices.

Nice UI, but no calculation field. I imported a csv file to give it a try, and 8,000 records took 15 min. or so of spinning beach ball, then displayed only the field headers and went back to the beach ball. I waited 5 or 10 minutes more and removed the app. I'll stick with Tap Forms.

Version 2.3 dated February 17, 2018, is available at GitHub http://giowck.github.io/symphytum/index.html

On. High Sierra, it's the most solid, intuitive, and predictable of the databases on MU- that I've tried: Records, Steward, Ouistee, all of which are paid. Two views; Form & Table There are many entry types, including web links, dates, reminders, and a "File List" type which will link to files; and date reminders links to Drop Box. There's no documentation to speak of, but so intuitive is the interface that I haven't felt the need for it. Sorting is limited to one field; as is search. There is no replace option and no report capabilities. However this is partly remedied by export to a program like Easy-CSV Editor (highly recommended.). There is active discussion in the Issues tab at GitHub. This is now my personal database of choice.

Best free personal database out there... not fancy as some others, but clean and functional as I need, at least...

So then the developer should change the “CFBundleShortVersionString” field in “Symphytum.app/Contents/Info.plist” to a string value of “1.2”? Is that the correct answer?  Do I win?

Good software. However, this program does not load on Mavericks (at least on my MacPro). Hopefully, as open source software, that problem will be remedied soon.

Pretty nice software to create data collections. It is very simple but has all features I need. What I love is the dropbox sync, I can edit all my data on my iMac and macbook and it is always synced.
