Tap Forms overview

Tap Forms helps you organize all kinds of things in one place - secure, searchable, and accessible on your Mac (iOS + Apple Watch app sold separately). How can one app organize everything? Because not only can you use and customize the 33 built-in templates but you can create your own "forms" for inputting any kind of information, even if that information includes pictures, doodles, audio recordings, calculations, file attachments, ratings, or even links to other forms. This makes it almost like building your very own customized organization app.

Features
  • Capture your way: add a picture, type some text, attach a file - there are 23 different types of information that can be captured with Tap Forms.
  • Organize your way: Create and design custom forms exactly how you want to for optimal organization. Get started with one of our ready-to-go form templates, or easily make a custom one from scratch with our integrated form building tools.
  • Store confidential data with confidence: Tap Forms' security settings let you optionally require a password, and even auto-lock when idle for a custom period of time. Using AES encryption, you can rest easy knowing your data is safe and secure.
  • Import, export, share: It’s easy to import your data from existing files, so getting started is a breeze. Import your data from text, CSV, Bento and more. Exporting allows you to share with Mac, Windows, and Linux users.
Advanced Features
  • Layout designer for creating custom form layouts
  • Sync with Tap Forms for iOS and Mac with or without the cloud
  • Advanced search rules with multi-field record filtering
  • Lightning-fast search
  • Share form templates with friends, family, and co-workers
  • Import and export standard text, CSV and XLSX files from Excel, Numbers, or other systems
  • Print 24 different types of barcodes including ISBN, UPC, Code 39, QR code, EAN, and more!
  • Label printing engine includes over 1,000 Avery label templates
  • Print record details

I had Bento from decades ago and even tho I bought Tap Forms, I never migrated all of my databases into it. Then came Tap Forms 5 and I didn't migrate because by then Bento was no longer supported and I couldn't open it w/out my license # from my Bento purchased eons ago and was lost thru the years. I contacted support and Brendan came to my aid immediately. He helped me every step of the way and was able to open Bento and capture all of it. He sent me these files in a format that very easily migrated everything. I was amazed at the simplicity. I am the administrator of an historic cemetery and have 1,900 records w/ 29 fields each and photos of monuments. I have the only copy of this database and should I lose, it would be tragic. I am now sending it to iCloud. I also use Tap Forms 5 for an inventory of everything in my home, for home maintenance records, for purchase history, and soon I hope for my recipes. As a Louisianian, I have recipes out the wazoo. This is going to be fun. I can never thank developer, Brendan, enough for the help he gave me trying to migrate from Bento to Tap Forms to Tap Forms 5. I did it easily by following his instructions which were perfect. Everything was transferred - even the photos which I didn’t think would happen. I will never not update as soon as it is available like I did before; that got me into such a mess. But, if I do get myself into a mess again, I know who to call for help - my friend Brendan.

I had been running a couple of data bases using Bento 3 software on a 12-year-old MacBook Pro. The data bases originated way back on an Apple IIe using the original AppleWorks software, eventually migrating to Bento when AppleWorks would no longer run. Frankly I was quite satisfied with Bento and would have been happy to continue with it indefinitely. Unfortunately, when it came time to replace the old MacBook Pro, I discovered Bento would not run on newer Mac’s. After some research it looked like my only option was to go with Filemaker Pro, software from the same Apple subsidiary that made Bento. Two big problems became apparent: First, Filemaker Pro is expensive. Very expensive. And, second, figuring out how to make Filemaker Pro do what I needed appeared daunting to a non-techie. And Filemaker Pro seemed like using an 18-wheeler to do a job better suited to a compact pick-up truck. A friend suggested I check out Tap Forms 5 made by Tap Zapp Software Inc. The price seemed eminently reasonable. In describing their product Tap Zapp explicitly mentioned Tap Forms 5 was an ideal platform for migrating from Bento. I decided to give it a try. Tap Forms provided easily understood directions on how to make the migration work. When I ran into roadblocks (I had to convert Bento 3 to Bento 4 and Bento 4 would not run on any of the three Mac’s I had at hand, Brendan, a Tap Forms developer at Tap Zapp, offered to do the necessary conversions for me. Long story short: the migration was easier than when I went from AppleWorks to Bento. I am very happy with the Tap Forms software and especially with the personal help I was given to solve my unique problems. If you are a Bento user looking for a long-term solution you simply cannot go wrong with Tap Forms 5. Even if you are not migrating from Bento this is a great software package. I highly recommend the company, the product, and the staffers who are available to help you make the migration!

I have used TAP Forms when Bento was no longer viable on the iMac. So a number of years. I have found that the developer is quick to respond when you need help and always has the answers first time round. I will continue going forward to use this database maker for as long as I am able to work with it. I am 77 years old and still find it very valuable on a daily basis on all my IOS devices. Thank you very much for being there when you are needed.

I have downloaded the trial and it is actually pretty good. Just a question: can I create drop-down menus, so I can press an arrow and choose values from a list? (e.g. in Symphytum this type of field is available). This field-type is really important to me... Thanks

Very good app, indeed. I have practically substituted it to my old FileMaker 9 Pro files, which where becoming more and more unreliable (new FileMaker is too costly for my needs). And the support is fantastic. But I really can not understand why Tap Forms flies like a lightning on my iPad and is so slow and clumsy on my iMac Retina with latest Sierra. It never opens, you have to wait for centuries. And with exactly the same documents. That's why I do not give it 5 stars

I want to thank the developers for being so friendly and supportive. So many developers, especially big ones no longer provide prompt response to emails. Developers providing good support should be rewarded.

with the addition of "nearby" sync, Tap Forms just became my most indispensable app, . I had been using it's IBM Cloudant service without any problems but I am wary of any cloud-based service. I can now remove that and sync more securely with my devices locally. I use Tap Forms for work databases, sports training data and testing and passwords. No need for any wallet apps. This does it all and without any problems. Brendan developer,, t will get back to you quickly.

I have been using the app for a number of personal sets of info and have recently begun to import old Bento databases into Tap Forms. I ran into issues and wrestled awhile. Finally an email to the developer brought a *very* quick response - - and after only a few interchanges - - a comment made by him led me to suspect my error. Following his suggestion - - he was right. My Bento databases imported wonderfully - - without flaw. It’s great to have a database app such as this available - - especially one with a future - - and one that is now a seeming delight to work with. Sincere appreciation to the developer and to the app itself. It seems most stable on El Capitan.

There were a few bugs when version 5 launched, but the developer has handled them fairly quickly and the app is now really stable and works great. Love the new updates. For those that used Bento in the past this is an awesome alternative. Also for those that don't need all the power, complexity and cost of Filemaker Pro.

Can't recommend this app highly enough. It works. Also has a good online forum. Like other comments here, I can vouch that the developer, Brendan, responds quickly. What a rarity. He released the new version 5 yesterday and I had a question about the altered synching method. He responded within minutes on what must have been an extremely busy day.

This app has become indispensable to me since the disappointing demise of Bento. It's pretty simple as databases go so you don't have to be a genius. The best thing is that Brendan is SO responsive when I have a question. It is so rare to get help from a developer that I give apps 100 extra points for that. I use TF to keep info on a variety of subjects, e.g. room reservation clients, medical providers, stores, and restaurants. I use Evernote too, for free form info but Tap Forms is better for more structured uses. I’m syncing with the iPhone using Dropbox and it works well most of the time.

I've been using this for a couple of years since Bento went by the wayside. It turned out to be way better than Bento right from the start and each update makes it that much better. It's an extremely easy app to use to create great databases. I'm especially please that it syncs (via Dropbox) to its companion on my iPad as I like to take my iPad out in the field as a resource. Support has been phenomenal as the dev has been very responsive to my questions. This app is as good as it gets for personal databases and the price is very affordable.

I have used this App on all my devices since the beginning. It is something I can not live without at this point. I am a huge fan of the power of databases and this one is simple, easy and affordable. Being able to sync all of my information has come in so handy, even when travelling. I am able to keep track of all my logins, accounts, identification, and more. I can not say enough about this App honestly. Their improvements just keep coming and I become more addicted with every new release. Can not wait for the new versions.

After a few months of use, I can say this is a very nice app! It's very handy, flexible and stable. It easily imported and handles one of my databases with over 2,000 records. After a little initial work and fiddling, syncing with IOS operates well and quickly. It's a pleasure to use and I find myself doing so more all the time. Thanks!
