Objectality Database, Business
iOS Universal Business
COMPLETELY customize the information this app stores and displays. (Well, cross-reference, search and create reports, too.)
A personalized to-do list. Business transactions you care about. A coin collection with images. Anything.
Modern: Local first - works offline, no cloud necessary. • Encryption - your mobile data is secure from theft. • Reliable - based on SQLite, the most widely deployed database engine in the world.
A plethora of basic data building blocks: Barcode (scan) • Number • Currency • Date • Distance (mileage) • Drawing (signature capture, signature cards, ...) • Duration • Email • Image • iOS Contact (association) • Note (multi-line) • Password (hidden text) • Phone Number • Time • Text • URL (hyperlink) • Yes/No.
Supplementary data building components: Choice lists • Users Interface (UI) Glyphs (headings, line breaks, ...).
Special-purpose Appliances: Location (GPS) • Time Group (time tracking) • Expense Group (expense tracking) • Mileage Group (mileage tracking).
Power-user capabilities: Object cross-references - e.g., assign a known Employee to a new Time Card. • Object sharing - have multiple Objects reference the same Object, e.g. multiple Orders under the same Customer. • Object composition - include Objects inside other Objects, e.g. an Address inside a Contact. • Object design - define Objects as Types in a generic manner and reuse those Types when designing other Objects.
"If you look at any kind of modern organization and you think, 'What are the foremost tools of power?' You will find that it is information." (Ricardo Semler)
