    "Not recommended"

    May 24, 2008   |   By david.mantripp

    Version: Not Found

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    The product can work very well, but v3.x does not support MySQL versions lower than 4.1, and version 2.6, which does, appears to have a bug which prevents it being registered under Mac OS X 10.5.

    Apart from this really strange lack of backwards compatibility with MySQL, the vendor ignores support email, and is generally unreliable.

    The product is pretty expensive for what it is. I upgraded to v3 in the hope of solving the registration issue (trying to transfer MacSQL to a new Mac) and because I believe in paying developers their dues.

    Well, this one deserves no dues. Unless you need AppleScript support, choose Navicat. It is far better, and has very good customer support.

    "Cannot recommend this company or their product."

    March 16, 2007   |   By unixwzrd_dotmac

    Version: MacSQL 3.1b14

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Their customer support is non-existent. I have tried to contact them a number of times regarding Unicode and Oracle support and have gotten no response.

    The last beta completely broke what was working except for Unicode.

    The lack of being able to test this application without purchasing it for Oracle required me to purchase the product in order to test and later find it didn't support my Japanese environment completely. I feel the price for testing, without being able to get my money back leaves me with very bad feelings, no response other than my one contact from them doesn't instill a feeling of customer service and goodwill.

    It looks pretty and candy coated on the outside, but it's rotten to the core. Stay away.

    "Hasn't crashed at all: working great! 3.02 is a..."

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I'm using MacSQL 3.02 with MySql on OS X Panther Server, and have found that it not only works as promised (I wanted the import/export capabilities), but has some handy PHP and Perl scripting tools that can generate basic query codes for you that you then modify to fit your site.

    This alone saved us hours of fooling around and worked right away. We couldn't be happier!

    As for previous reviews' comments on crashes, we've had nothing but rock-solid performance from MacSql.

    "Crashes and Crashes"

    September 14, 2004   |   By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

    Version: MacSQL 3.0.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This program crashes more often than just randomly, it's very unstable. It crashes on quit, crashes when adding a table, etc.

    So far, I'm not impressed at all.

    "A Solid tool"

    September 03, 2004   |   By MacJunkie

    Version: MacSQL 3.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    The tool has a wondefull GUI the best of the bunch. Easy to use. The documentation and help section is very limited. The form generation is a good start but needs improvement. Support is very slow about 4 days for a responce. the price is a bit high for the product.

    "'worksforme', but..."

    October 28, 2003   |   By threegee73

    Version: MacSQL 2.6.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I have had amazing success with MacSQL. I like it a lot. BUT. A long time ago (circa pre-jaguar, I think?) they promised a "REAL SOON NOW" beta, rewritten in Cocoa, full of new OS X goodness. Well we went all of Jaguar with no beta, no running code, the screenshots link that had the beta info is down, and we get a bugfix, "maintenance" release every 3 months or so. MacSQL could stay the same it is now, forever, for all I care; just don't tease about new code that never appears. If you aren't going to make your expected ship date, have the balls to announce it.

    That being said, it works amazingly for me. Sometimes crashy, but I can't find a Mac app that isn't.

    "MacSQL, inconsistent, unreliable, bad tech support."

    August 13, 2003   |   By Miles Pickering

    Version: MacSQL 2.6.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Gotta agree with the guy below. MacSQL crashes randomly, doesn't handle the crashes well, doesn't give correct responses to simple SQL queries, behaves weirdly and just about anything else you can thing of in a poorly engineered product. Seems like a hobbyist effort, not one ready for professional use. Their tech support is unresponsive and unhelpful. I cannot recommend this product to anyone as it is not ready for prime time.

    C'mon guys, get it together...

    "Mac SQL Does Not Work - Do Not Buy It"

    May 13, 2003   |   By AMColorado

    Version: MacSQL 2.6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This is the second copy of MacSQL I've bought that does not work with SQL Server. I bought it for OS9 and I bought it for OSX. Both versions crashed randomly while connected to SQL server databases. I do not, nor have I ever had Default Folder installed on my Mac so the excuse about Default Folder causing the app to crash is bogus. RunTime Labs ignores requests for tech support. DO NOT BUY MAC SQL
