Overall Satisfaction with Sequel Pro

Sequel Pro is used in my department for database maintenance. It greatly simplifies the task of correcting data errors in MySQL tables.
  • Editing existing data. Editing record contents is trivial in Sequel Pro, while not nearly as easy in MySQL Workbench or phpMyAdmin.
  • Deleting data - even simpler than editing data.
  • Inserting new data - using "Duplicate row" then making needed changes is very simple.
  • Sequel Pro would benefit from the addition of a tool to simplify the creation of new tables.
  • Sequel Pro has made the process of correcting incorrect or incomplete records much faster. This allows me to operate much more efficiently.
MySQL Workbench is a wonderful tool, but the routine editing of existing data is note nearly as straightforward as it is in Sequel Pro. The ability to sort a data view with a single click makes Sequel Pro my definite choice.

phpMyAdmin is pretty ubiquitous, but the routine editing of existing data is much more cumbersome than it is in Sequel Pro.
When an existing MySQL table needs to be examined or edited, Sequel Pro excels. In the circumstance where a new table needs to be created, I believe phpMyAdmin might offer slightly better interface.
