I have HanDBase apps on my iPhone and iPad and recently had to replace a Dell laptop with a new MacBook Air. I want to be able to communication this new laptop with the dbases I created on my iPhone . What will work? Will the desktop Mac version work on the MacBook Air?

Hi,

Thanks for your post. It will definitely work- I do all of the HanDBase development on a Macbook Air so I know for a fact it will work! One thing you may want to note, coming from a PC. Our Mac version is nowhere near as capable as the Windows version. On the Mac you can sync, install files, import and export, and make basic record edits, but there is no support yet for:

Encryption
Relational databases
Database Design
Forms
Editing Filters/Views
etc.

So a lot is missing at this time. I hope in the future to close this gap significantly but the program works well as a basic companion to your mobile version. In addition, when you purchase the mac version of the desktop, you can also download a packaged version of the Windows desktop that runs on your Mac using WINE emulation. It lets you have the full capabilities of the windows version but unfortunately looks very out of place running on the Mac.

Just a heads up on that!

I know it's been a while since I last posted and you replied but well....you know how things are. I just want to be able to "sync" (using whatever method i.e. dropbox etc) to have a copy of my database on my MacBook Air. I don't need anything fancy...just enter data etc.

So I guess this will work. Since I already have this on my iPad how can I get is on my MacBook and at what cost?
