I really am honestly surprised that there isn't a generic DB app for the BB yet. The BB has been out for many years, has noone else had the need for a good DB on a BB? I find that odd.
Yes, I agree that a DB is better than a spreadsheet.
Unfortunately, the offering of DB apps for the BlackBerry is shockingly limited.
As I mentioned, HanDBase is a welcome port, as I had created many DBs on the Palm version. The goofy thing is that you cannot design a new DB on-device with the 'Berry version - you have to design on the PC and then transfer it over.
And I also agree about the atuo-fill capabilities of other DB apps. I don't know whether it's the availability (or lack thereof) of development tools or inherent limitations in the ultra-secure OS, but there just aren't that many DB apps for the 'Berry.
The need is certainly there. There are just limited options available for filling it.
