    Norion is more like a wiki and a document repositiry. Airtable is more a Spreadsheet/Database hybrid with additional features.

    Notion seems like a wiki, but it's tables are databases with much similar features like Airtable has (you can link items, save different views like kanban, calendar, gallery and so on). And you can combine that with the wiki features, having different displays of your base put in one page with different filters on to have a custom dashboard for example. Only thing it lacks are native forms, but you can embed third party forms into your pages.

    Airtable is more like a beefed up Excel. Notion, though similar in how they handle flexibility in data, it is more like a wiki.

    Google Sheets vs Airtable opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Google Sheets is still a legitimate alternative to Airtable, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    Google Sheets cannot do half of what airtable does

    Not yet comparable to airtable in terms of functionality, but the base is perfect. It really is the open source alternative to airtable as this is for now identical. Best tool for 2021.

    Not an alternative to Airtable at all. It's just not a (relational) database.

    Memento is very Android orientated and is disappointing on desktop. Fibery is great on desktop but doesn't even have an Android app. ("Mobile Last. No Android or iOS apps, never tested on a touch screen" - that's a quote from their website.)
