Action this day!

Hi Dave.
This is a reaction to your post of 4 Jan. My reaction is late because I have just got round to revisiting the forum, and that is because the posts are all doom and gloom about the future of HB, and have been so for a number of years now. In your post you talk of having the sincere hope that 2021 will be better for HB, and of course I echo that wish.
However, what I am about to write, is not intended to be offensive; it is rather a reflection of the way I see the situation.
You have developed a first class product, which is unique in its versatility (I have often searched in vain for a substitute), but you are hopeless at marketing it.
Over the years many people have offered you suggestions for improving sales and revenues, but I cannot see that you have made any moves to implement any of these ideas. Wishing and hoping are not enough. Until you take steps to do something about marketing HB more effectively, things will only stagnate, and then deteriorate. Marketing is a bit like software, it needs constant attention and updating to meet new situations. Since it is obviously not your ‘thing’ you need to find someone who can do this for you, maybe on a commission basis.
Perhaps among the one million downloaders of HB there are people who would be willing and able to help you in this. You could try mailing the licence holders to see if there are any people who would/could help, or even to see what people think about other ways of financing the program. After all, if you charged everyone 1 dollar a year you would be a millionaire, every year over.
Best wishes
Michael

I wholeheartedly agree. I just expended hours trying to get my databases to sync between Win 10 and Galaxy S7. The sync just does not seem to want to work at all anymore. What's frustrating is syncing goes smoothly with Deja Office PC CRM and SplashData, so it can be done. If there was another DB out their on par with the usability and versatility of HanDBase I'd jump on it in a heartbeat, but alas, there is no on par competition that I've found.

Dave, if you can't get back to it and get it updated to work with the latest iterations of Windows, MacOS, and Android, then please sell it to someone who can and will. Companion Link I think would be one good such prospect. I really don't want to see the same thing happen to HB that happened to SmartList to Go. Great program, and in a few respects better than HB, but after it was bought by DataViz they let it die on the vine.

I just checked with my test systems, and I was able to sync from Windows 10 to my iPhone 12 Pro Max.

I have all the latest updates from Microsoft and Apple.

HanDBase Desktop is Enterprise for iPhone v4.7.7 Build R2

what errors are you getting when you try to sync?
Have a good day

I'm very pleased to say that my iPhone still syncs nicely with the most recent HanDBase (4.6.0.2) 64-bit Mac desktop app.
