Overall Satisfaction with Zoho Creator

We use Zoho Creator as a backend database and database tool set to help us automate real estate contracts.
  • Flexible.
  • Easy to program.
  • Does a lot of the work for you in database creation and manipulation.
  • Hosted already so you don't have to figure out your own hosting solution.
  • Control - Zoho allows you complete control and portability over your data.
  • Integration with other web services.
  • Design tools to control the look and feel could be improved. I believe they are working on this.
  • Ability to store very sensitive information, such as social security numbers/encrypted database.
  • Easier way to manage multiple access profiles available to web/customer users.
  • Very high ROI. The system provides the whole backend of our website.
  • KnackHQ
I've used Knack previously. It has better/easier controls over user authenticated access and a better/more fun to use UI. However it is less flexible than Zoho Creator. With Zoho I can pretty much do anything I can dream up. Knack is powerful, but more limited than Zoho Creator.
Highly secure databases may not be a good fit, though I understand that Zoho is developing the ability to export the whole database and tools (Zoho Creator) to a user's server. This would eliminate this issue. It is useful for a highly customizable data base with minimal programming experience required.
