Ninox is more customizable than TapForms in configuring layouts with related fields, but its documentation is more confusing.

Another SQL-based product that you might want to check out, which might better suit you needs, is:

Navicat ($79)

I wouldn’t waste the money on Navicat (initially.) sqlite3 is shipped with OS X and there are plenty of great free interfaces,
https://sqlitestudio.pl/index.rvt for example.

Nice thing with sqlite3 is it’s tiny, and plenty fast.

Downloaded it: looks straightforward but assumes a knowledge of databases which I don't possess... I'll build on Ninox and then may export to a free solution, once I've read the 'dummies' book
