It has great promise but many, many enhancements and fixes have languished for 2-3 years. The development/marketing team seems to be caring about something other than their users. Check out comments at community.airtable.com.

Its basically google spreadsheets 2.0 + a relational database

Spreadsheets are easy to enter data but scale poorly

Relational databases are good for scaling data but are a pain to deal with for the end user

Airtable is basically best of both worlds

Has a very slick and easy to use UI interface

Easy referential integrity support

Lots of useful features

I also wrote a number of tools to use with it too

With blocks only in Pro Plan, it is easily replaced by Spredsheets, Notion.so, and others...

Part spreadsheet and part database manager; Airtable is a great platform for creating quick solutions.

I am not a database pro, but I think in data relationships. I've never encountered a software that worked so intuitively AND was so adaptable to so many applications. They've hit a sweet spot with fantastic user interface combined with accessible, powerful, back-end.

Sadly there seems to be no way to work offline. Even the Desktop-App is just a Client which forces you to Login online before start working. A very big disadvantage in my eyes.

Overall it looks quite neat, but it took a while for me to figure how to work with this concept.

Also it is only in English language. If it's not your mother's tongue it can be hard to get into all functions of Airtable. I hope the developer has planned adding some more languages.
