Since updating to OS7 on my iphone, idata no longer seems to work. Is there an update? This DB has been my life line and no have come to a rude STOP.

I’ve been using iData3 for several years now as a very capable replacement for askSam under Windows. This is a superb program, with a good feature set, rapid searching, and the ability to combine both field- and freeform data in the same record. I use the software to manage research notes, and, as well, a large library of scientific manuscripts.

One of the very best features of the program is the ability to easily link to external files (PDFs, Excel files, .txt files, sound files, etc.) This means that one can use the program as a very efficient front-end (e.g. for abstracts) and then use a link to point to the full version of a file or data. This allows one to keep the front-end program lean without the bloat involved in storing PDFs or Excel files, etc. inside the database. One can also do links from one record to another within a given database (but not across databases).

Highly recommended. Support is quick and responsive.

Disclaimer
I have absolutely no personal involvement with either the developers or the software — I’m just a very happy user.

This antique software should be $10, not $70. It has barely been updated since it's heyday 15 years ago in the mid-90's. The mac is sorely in need of a mid-range database and this COULD be it but not at this rate of development. Sad.

iData 3 is my everyday, can't-do-without, instant database for my personal and business data. Finds any word or phrase in one second. Does more complex searches if needed. Stores text, graphics, etc.
Although capable of creating multiple fields of data, I use it simply as one field per record and it works great for me.
I use FileMaker Pro for heavy-duty database use. But iData 3 is my personal instant database, and it syncs with the iPhone version (get iData Mobile

This really is an application I keep finding new uses for, and it keeps getting better. It may not be the slick powerhouse you think you need, but if you try it you'll find it takes care of all kinds of jobs, from a simple bookmark list to maintaining complex, linked research databases. It's wonderfully flexible and very, very stable. I've been a user since I first got DataGenie, years ago. I confess I often try other things then realize "iData will do that... better". iData has built-in telephone and email utilities that I rarely use, and it takes a while to get used to the differences between "Preferences" and "Datafile Settings." Otherwise, there are numerous import options; and between "Export" and printing, you can almost always find a way to get you data out for further processing. DEVONthink Office Pro has the ability to import datafiles as sheets, so you're not locked out of any other format. Best of all, the developer, Robin Casady, is responsive and helpful. It is updated regularly with surprising new features and overall improvements.

iData 3 is indispensable. I use it as a personal dictionary, to catalogue my books and keep track of all sorts of data. I'd be lost without it.

I was the user who reported the slight matching errors with combined diacritics: the devs fixed it almost faster than I could keep up with my email! That's service.

iData 3 is extremely stable, intuitive, easy to use and flexible. I recommend it highly.

It's one of my Five Favourite Apps. my MacBook and I would like to be stuck on a desert island with. ;)

Using StickyBrain as noted by some must have a fast processor and lots of Ram. iData Pro i have been using for years and could not keep up with all the changes in StickyBrain (Bloat with its extended database). I finally dumped StickyBrain in favor of iData version 2 and use Growl for notification.

Sticky Brain beat you to Palm support, they have my money for now. Do what they did, just sync to Memo Pad and forget about the Palm client app for now. At $20 cheaper I'd still go with Sticky Brain for now, but I'll keep my eye on this old favorite.

I don't know how long you've used Sticky Brain, and, thus, how many of their recent updates you have weathered. For my part, after many, many hours wasted trying to make Sticky Brain updates work, and after lots of lost data due to Sticky Brain, I finally just dumped it. I'm now trying both iData and the brilliant Mac Journal in place of Sticky Brain and am delighted with both. I've found that I use iData for less complex information I need to store (no reason inherent to iData for this, it just seems to have happened that way for me). It's a great program.

PLEASE add back Palm support and I will upgrade ASAP. The Palm interface could use just a little bit of work to take it from just barely okay, to perfect.
