Tap Forms Reviews

I have to admit I am a bit disappointed in TapForms. I used the version 3 for quite a while, input a lot of effort into creating a lot of databases (Home Inventory, Application List, PS3 Games, etc) but in the end it failed on me - a lot. Eventually I hoped my woes would be resolved in version 5 so I upgraded right away, however, it still failed on me. So in version 3 I had major sync issues. I had to constantly reset the sync process in order to get my data across my devices. This was a pain, until I finally decided to use it only on my Mac and have the iOS versions for viewing only, but with limits as it did not always show all my items. Then came version 5, with a new sync upgrade. I thought this resolved all my issues to find that when I imported the database, all the attachments and pictures were lost. So all that hard work I had was gone, over. I tried multiple times to import the database with no luck. Eventually I decided to go back to version 3 where to my surprise also lost all the attachments... so I am basically giving up on it for now. Hopefully new versions will come to fix major issues, however, to input much effort to build a database to see all that work gone out the window is something I really do not wish to see again, so I will be very cautious if ever going to use this software again.

Despite this, I think it is the closest to what Bento was providing, and for me Bento was superb. So I still give it a 3 star rating for the ease of use, intuitive design and great functionalities.
