Some users have had problems accessing the app today - this was because of an outage at our DNS provider enom (https://twitter.com/enom/status/574970713330749441). Enom is a major if not the largest provider of this type and many other websites were affected as well. The issue has by now been resolved - if you're still having problems, you need to flush DNS as described here: http://www.wikihow.com/Flush-DNS. Apologies to everyone who was affected by this.

New feature! You can now publish databases on the web, so that other people can view them without having to sign in. To do this, go to Main menu -> Share.

Added a FAQ item on how we differentiate ourselves: Unlike other tools in this space, Obvibase doesn't position itself as an application builder, it is not grounded on relational database - instead it hopes to break down the barriers that keep database a niche product by saying "this is as simple as a spreadsheet, full stop".

#tipsandtricks  A simple trick that lets you have better record names. Suppose you have an issue tracker, one column is Title, another is Status. You can set up your record names to be "[Title] ([Status])". Or if you track people and have columns for first and last name, you can name records "[last], [first]". These record names are used in page titles, Find results, comments dropdown, nested tables etc. How to do this - create a text column populated by formula such as [last] + ', ' + [first], then click database name, and in popup menu choose to identify records based on this new formula column.

Rolled out the "Find" feature for quick look-ups across the whole database.

A new feature released today: ability to add comments to database records. It should be pretty handy for three reasons. First, while it helps to keep most of the data organized into database columns, there are often bits of data that you don't want organized - and comments let you record those bits of data without giving it a second thought. Second, unlike the regular fields, comments support multi-line text. And third, they let people collaborating on a database exchange messages - as you would expect, there is an "unread" indicator notifying you of new comments made by others.

#tipsandtricks  What if you need a filter such as ... AND (... OR ...)? Well, we were thinking a lot about this use case when we decided we need to support formulas. When you need a complex filter, create a checkbox column, populate it by a formula (which can be as complex as you like), and filter by that column.
