My thanks to SQLPro Studio for sponsoring last week at DF. Look, it is no surprise to anyone reading this that I care deeply and feel strongly about using truly native Mac and iOS apps. That’s especially true for professional tools. SQLPro Studio is an exquisite truly native app for developers working with SQL databases — MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, and the one I use the most, SQLite.
But native for what? All Apple platforms: Mac, iPad, and even iPhone. Yes, SQLPro Studio has an excellent SQL database client for iPhone. This isn’t some crummy Java app. It handles everything from schema design to browsing and editing records, with full syntax coloring. The developer, Kyle Hankinson of Hankinsoft Development, has been working on this suite of apps for years now, frequently updates them, and is incredibly responsive to users. Dark Mode support on Mac and iOS? Of course. This is how you do a cross-platform suite of serious pro apps.
Special offer for Daring Fireball readers: Save 20 percent on any SQLPro Studio web store purchase using the promo code GRUBER, or download a free trial on the iOS App Store.
