Another Alternative for Pocket Data

abcDB packs punch in a small package

Here's another one for the PocketPC users searching for a replacement for Pocket Access. abcDB Pro works with databases in the Pocket Access format, which means that it can take advantage of ActiveSync's ability to synchronize those databases with Access databases on the desktop. PocketSoft has crammed a lot of functionality into the tiny package: a full table designer, a query designer that includes both grid-based and SQL design modes, and even a forms package complete with drag-and-drop control placement and reasonable defaults for autoforms. The forms package supports dropdown and grid controls for a true relational experience. For a good, solid database package that fits into a small form factor, this one is hard to beat.
