HanDBase for Android Description
HanDBase, a relational database manager, allows users to create custom data collection solutions. The databases designed by HanDBase help users perform tasks ranging from developing extremely simple shopping or checklists to complex, fully relational inventory management systems. Designed and stored on the Android device, users have the ability to choose from 19 different field types when designing a database. Field types include text, integer, float, date, time, popup, relationship, database popup, unique, calculated, signature, conditional and more.
HanDBase databases can be used for secure data collection. Password protection can be applied to restrict database opening, the ability to add and edit records and more. 128 bit encryption can be applied at the field level to add an extra strong layer of security.
HanDBase also allows for creative unique "views" of the data stored within databases, including sorting, the ability to toggle field visibility and filtering of records based on a wide range of parameters.
While HanDBase for Android is a stand alone solution that can allow for database design, data collection and manipulation all on the mobile device, users have the option of using their databases on the desktop. Various addons which include HanDBase Desktop, a wifi based sync conduit, plus the ability to sync with Microsoft Access and/or ODBC compatible data sources are available as a 30 day trial at the following link. Please note that use of these addons after 30 days requires a paid registration. More information about the add-ons, including options for download a trial version or purchasing, are available at
The HanDBase for Android manual is available at For additional support please visit us on our forums, available at, or contact support at

5.0 out of 5 stars HanDBase for Xoom November 9, 2011
Verified Purchase
I bought HanDBase for my Xoom based on a recommendation from a colleague, and quickly set up a test database in my office to get familiar with it. For clarification, I work in engineering for an aviation related company where I often spend time in aircraft in our hangars or on the flight line collecting data for our design efforts. My first test database allowed me to get into an aircraft and quickly record equipment locations (using the Xoom's audio input function) to populate my test database. When I returned to my office I transferred the database contents to an Excel spreadsheet on my desktop using our closed internal wi-fi network. I could have also used the Xoom's USB connection but didn't feel like dragging the cable out.

In a nutshell I'm impressed with the versatility of HanDBase in conjunction with the Xoom's features as described above. Electronic data entry (where I previously used paper and pencil)saves lots of time and reduces paper transcription errors to ZERO. The ease of creating custom dbase's for specific tasks makes my job so much more productive, and the ability to have the same db on my desktop (with the Window's HanDBase, an extra charge) makes everything that much more versatile.

HanDBase for Android does not have the maturity of the versions that are available on other platforms that the developer currently supports. The immediate problem is the lack of forms support that's available on the desktop and other platform apps. I'm confident that in time their Android support and feature list will catch up. The only other con comment I can make is not a HanDBase problem but a Honeycomb problem. Currently Honeycomb does not support the Xoom to be seen as a USB connected mass storage device (with a drive letter).

5.0 out of 5 stars where are the updates? December 25, 2012
Verified Purchase
I love HanDbase and have used it for years, beginning use when I had my old Treo phone. I have the professional version that can integrate with Access. I have never regretted having bought this program. When I first looked for Database Apps I tried the "free" Memento Database app, but found it to be worthless for back-up and restore. Who wants to loose all that data input time!!!? Nobody had to twist my arm to buy the HanDbase app upgrade when I switched to an Android Samsung Charge. I exported all Memento databases as .CSV files and imported them into to the HanDbase upgrade.

The HanDbase website as many, many free templates available to download so you do not even have to create any yourself, unless you want to. I find creating my own and the forms to go with it is easiest on my desktop portion of HanDbase and actually fun! I am always "tweaking" the forms to make them more professional looking. But when I first started I learned by downloading a template and then messing around with it.

This version 5.+ is not the latest version. They have version 6 out now that allows you to sync your Android wireless! I can not find V.6 here at Amazon and since I bought my Droid Version here, I can not get V.6 from google :-( COME ON Amazon! Get us V.6 of the app PLEASE!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good database January 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
I have been using HanDBase for several years to keep track of passwords, finances, health information, work information, etc. This app works very well on both Android and Apple systems. The only problem I have is that it does not sync well to my Kindle Fire.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent software November 24, 2012
By Manolo
Verified Purchase
Works great on my HTC EVO 3D phone and my Google Nesus 7 tablet. Easy to set up. Easy to import and export.

Things I'd like to see in future releases:

1. Fields have limitations. Entries have to be no wider than a certain number of characters, which can be frustrating.
2. Check box option: rather than line them up going down, it would be nice if it could be set up horizontally to save space.
3. Radio buttons: I can get around this easy by creating a pull down menu. Trying to save one less "tap" on my screen.

Item #1 above is the only major complaint I have. Items 2 and 3 are minor and I can live with the existing options.

One thing of note: On both my phone and tablet the voice recognition works great. I use the software to do voter canvassing, so when I want to find out the person's phone number or the church he/she attends, I just tap the microphone button on my keyboard and let the voice recognition capture the reply and covert it to typed text. It doesn't this really fast. You will need a data connection to accomplish this but it's worth it.

If you don't have a data connection (say, a wifi-only tablet and you are not near wifi), and you don't want to trust finger input, you can buy a capacitive stylus to quickly fly through menus and type of the keyboard.

Looking forward to further updates. Excellent software.

5.0 out of 5 stars great program amazon missing major updates January 20, 2014
Verified Purchase
I use this program daily,. When I got an email from HanDBase telling me that the form designer was available for Android, I tried to purchase it through the in app menu the choice was unavailable. I uninstalled it and purchased it from the Google Play Store, The version I got is a vast improvement and several updates beyond what is available from Amazon. The interface is much improved and I now have form designer installed

Has Amazon stopped upgrading software? Critical use software like HanDBase must be kept current.

If you use your tablet for actual work I would seriously suggest purchasing this software from Google.

Needless to say I am disappointed in the support from Amazon.
