What is Symphytum?

Symphytum is a personal database software for everyone who desires to manage and organize data in an easy and intuitive way, without having to study complex database languages and software user interfaces.

Design input forms. Move and resize fields thanks to the dynamic layout engine. Use text, numbers, images, files and other control fields. Put your data in the cloud to enjoy hassle-free automatic synchronization on all your computers.

Take the easy way. Manage your data, from club membership to stamp collection, with Symphytum.

Feature Highlights:

Fields: Not Just Text Design your input forms with support for different data types: text, numeric, date, progress, image, file list, checkbox, combobox, etc.

Two Views On The Same Data Use the form view for structured data input and representation, use the table-like view for searching, sorting and comparing.

Integrated Cloud Sync Using Symphytum across multiple computers is a joy. Your data is always automatically synchronized everywhere. Drivers for cloud services such as Dropbox are included.

Sync Conflict Management Symphytum manages synchronization conflicts for you. While only one session with write access is allowed at the same time, other computers may access the database in read-only mode during an open session.

Date Reminder Date fields keep you informed on tasks, appointments or birthdays, if requested. All Reminders, once triggered, are listed in one place.

Future Plans:

Great improvements and features are continuously implemented and delivered through updates. Expect enhanced export/import and print functionality, new field types and a Symphytum app for mobile devices.

This is a great app. The only issue I have with it, is that there is no help file / support.

I wanted to integrate it into an appraisal process and I couldn't get any information about relational capabilities, so I had to drop it in the end, which was a pity.

A really database with SQLite included as database engine but so easy, light and beautiful. Perfect to manage a personal database without technical knowledge.

This is great software for simplifying creating and entering data. With a pleasant and surprisingly flexible form creator for 'catalogs' this is a most impressive feature.

This is where most of its usefulness ends.

No way of producing calculated fields, no way of producing additional reporting formats (not even having a simple table format report is a distinct problem)

Even the most basic database user would require more functionality than this software delivers at the moment.

I look forward to the day when there is more functionality (reporting, calculated fields, etc) as this software has the potential of becoming an amazing and useful non-geek database application for Windows, MAC and Linux based systems with more development.

You state Symphytum is discontinued but their site https://github.com/giowck/symphytum/releases shows an update on June 4. Maybe check it out?

Thanks @less_wiser, I've removed the discontinued notice. You can also report issues like this using the "Report a problem" option when viewing apps. Appreciate your taking the time to mention it here so we could get the listing updated. :)

Hope you have a great day!

Cheers, David
