Literally used this for over 8 years when I switched from the wonderful Palm database program SmartlistsToGo to this for Android. It has always worked fine, if not as seamless, flexible or elegant. Syncing between Android and desktop has always been something of a challenge, and gets harder every year when a new version of Android comes out. Now, it won't sync with the desktop at all (Android Pie). Vendor is no longer responding. Works fine on the phone, and I copy the databases to Google Drive and then download them to the desktop, so I can use the Windows app. Not great, but it all I have. If you only need a phone-based app and don't care about support, it's fine. Otherwise, I'd look elsewhere. My problem is I've looked and can't find a decent Android Database/Windows Database combination that syncs. Until I do, I will stick with this.

I've used Handbase before going all the way back to Palm and it has always been an excellent DB program. However , being able to print locally is vital for my work and currently you can only save what is visible on the screen to PDF so there is currently no way to print out your work on the go. (Workaround: you can send to email which comes through as text, then copy and paste to Word and print that)

Like others I have used this on handheld devices since long before android was created. Simply the best and easiest database I use. I have been running the same entry forms for so long I can't comment on current version of these. I link with the desktop application which is functional but looks dated. Love to see the suite upgraded.

What's new

Sorry for the font size issues that some users saw with the last update. This version should even the font sizes out for all Android users regardless of type:
* Prior version did some font scaling to account for differences between the global display font settings. This new build ignores those global display font settings for list view and edit record screen. To adjust the size, go to HanDBase's preferences section (from the Choose Database screen) and adjust the size there for each screen.
