    Hello,

    I'm looking for a simple database app which can sync its data between ipad/ipod/iphone.

    No need for templates, relational database, extra security just a simple database that can sync.

    Optional requirements
    - import export
    - dropbox support
    - sync with windows based database

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks!

    Wow

    Database, as in database of contacts?

    I've been looking for the same thing. For some reason whenever I sync with the standard outlook, or google contacts i get duplicates on my iphone/ipad and on the google contacts. Additionally it wont add the contacts that I create on my iphone/ipad.

    I'm not sure where the problem lies, but I am looking for a database program that could sync these devices along with my Blackberry for work.

    @Pakman0209. sounds like you have both contacts syncing in itunes turned on and are using a exchange account for your GMail. Switch the syncing off in one of these places to prevent you creating duplicates. I would suggest switching itunes syncing off, as the exchange syncing works OTA.

    EDIT: oops DEAD THREAD, well my advice is still good, but guess he would have sorted it out by now.

    What about using Excel about database? There are office apps compatible with Excel and cloud support.

    PS: There is a relational database app called "Database for iPad" (free) but it doesn't offer sync and seems unsupported.

    Did a quick search and it seems that CSV Touch and CSV Dataviewer meets your basic requirements.

    if you are jailbroken on your devices you can use a cydia app called "Data Deposit" to sync data between any the apps via dropbox. Obviously you need the same database app on each device.

    Handy for syncing gamesave date etc as well.

    CSV touch does not allow editing!

    You should be able to sync your contacts, calendars, email accounts, etc to both devices, since those all originate from your computer.

    What's more, you may refer to the page about iPod/iPhone/iPad Transfer Backup Reviews, which included transferring iDevice files to computer and iTunes.
    Good Luck...:D

    Absolute easiest way is use one account. Using more than one account is feasible but a bit more fiddly especially when it comes to updates.
