Airtable review: A drop-dead easy relational database management system
February 24, 2016 - Uncategorized
Airtable is an online platform for creating, using, and sharing small relational databases. It’s not ready for enterprise users yet (that’s coming), but right now, if you want help managing data for personal use or for your small business, if you need to share that data with others, if you’d like users to access it anywhere, and if you’d love to do all this for free (or next to nothing), then Airtable might be the answer to your prayers.
On your computer, there is nothing to download. Just launch your browser, go to Airtable.com, and sign up. It’s free to get started.

You can pick from a couple dozen starter bases for different purposes. (“Base” is Airtable-speak for database.) Or you can import a .csv file or paste column and row data from an existing spreadsheet. But it’s a snap to build a base from scratch, so let’s do that. And since it’s easier to show how this works with concrete examples, let’s do that, too.
