    We just launched a new personal database called Steward on Mac App Store. It could help people organize personal information such as notes, password, collections etc. We want to provide an easy to use personal database after the discontinuation of Bento.

    Main features:
    • 10+ prebuilt templates (Password, Personal Collection, Notes, Home Inventory etc)
    • 9 different field types (Text, Number, Image, Date, Attachment, Rating, Checkbox, Choice, Website)
    • Search
    • Import & Export CSV and TAB file
    • Backup & Restore
    • Undo & Redo
    • Printing
    • Customizable table icon with a builtin icon library
    • Quicklook image and attachment

    Please check it out yourself:

    I have more demanding needs than what your software can provide but I was surprised by 2 things:

    1. Very little content on your website, I understand you have just started but if I would consider purchasing such software I would expect much more information...
    2. Why do you require 10.10? It will likely limit your potential customers because many older Mac owners have not updated to 10.10.

    For 1, do you mean user guide? You can try the evaluation version for 30 days.

    For 2, every OS version changes in subtle ways. Those changes are more obvious to application like Steward which does quite a few customizations. We think supporting two OS versions (10.10 an 10.11) is a decent tradeoff between covering a good range of user base while providing a high quality app.

    Not just user guide but if you take a look at most OS X developers sites they have lot of information about their software such as f.q.a, troubleshooting guides, useful hints on how to the software, etc.

    I understand that supporting many OS X versions is more demanding but most software developers support at least 10.9.
    I will not purchase anything that only supports latest version because I have software that is expensive to upgrade and I will only upgrade OS when there are real benefits for doing so. Yosemite has been less than impressive and I am a bit sceptical about El Capitan.
