DataOrganizer is an easy to use personal database for macOS. DataOrganizer is intended to be a modern replacement for Bento.
Imports existing data from Bento 4, BayCard (DataOrganizer's predecessor), CSV (Comma Separated Values), and TSV (Tab Separated Values)
Includes eight ready-made templates: Clients, Inventory, Issues, Journal, Membership List, Party Planner, Recipes, and Serial Numbers.
Allows for further organization of your libraries into "sub-groups" using stacks and smart stacks. (A stack is similar to a playlist in iTunes, while a smart stack is criteria-based and is similar to a smart playlist.)
Includes over 20 field types.
Supports Mojave’s Dark Mode.
Supported field types:
Basic field types, such as: Text, Multi-Line Comment, Tags, Choice, Date, Duration, URL, Email, Phone Number, Address, Check Box, Number, Currency, and Star Rating.
Four special field types that link to macOS's built-in databases: Contacts, Calendar Events, Files, Mail Messages.
A Media List field type that stores photos.
A Relationship field type that allows for one library to link to another library.
What’s new in version 2023.0.1
Updated on Jun 19 2023
DataOrganizer 2023.0.1 fixes an issue where drag-and-dropping an image out of a media collection field and into the Finder would result in the dropped file receiving an incorrect extension, typically mov. This has now been corrected.
I still use Bento. It doesn't work as well as I'd like on an iOS (often crashes when I attempt to copy data) device though it's rock solid on my Mac (running High Sierra) and it syncs just fine as well.
And while I would like a database that's supported I'm not willing to deal with the nonsense that is subscription-ware to do it.
I can't call this a review, because I haven't used DataOrganizer enough for that. But on first look, the database seems very nicely designed. I just wish it had a way to print mailing labels. Great start. BTW, it isn't free. It costs $20 per year, but it does have a 14-day free trial.
