HandyBase - Database Application

(Don't think this has been mentioned yet. Been away all weekend so missed all the excitement!)

Anyway, Epocware (HandyDay, HandyDates etc) has released a database application for the P800. Summary below is from their website (Hope that's okay moderators?). You can get more details from I'm downloading it now. Will report back if it's any good or not!

------ Direct from ------
Handy Base is feature rich and easy-to-use database for Sony Ericsson P800. It allows you to capture, store, manage and retrieve information about similar items. For example, you can store stocks and shares data, price lists, films, train timetables, recipes, and others.

Handy Base supports the following field types:

Text (unlimited length)
Floating point numbers

Handy Base application has two fully customizable views of table contents: Card View (displays each entry as a separate record) and List View (displays entries as a table). You can easily switch between them by pressing 'Switch view' on the Toolbar.

You can sort database entries by any labels in ascending or descending order.

You can find entries in all database fields or on particular labels. You can use wildcard search (type '?' for a single unknown character or '*' for any number of unknown characters).

Features of Handy Base application:

Card View / List View
List View: click on column name to sort by this label

You look like you want to go away, But I know you’re gonna stay. For although your heart is in L.A, Your head is in my fridge. There’s flowers in your hair, they're not real their made of silk. There’s a note in your mouth, to remind me to get milk.
