It’s not often that I write about the launch of a product that I have already reviewed in the past, but Dabble DB is one product that I have been just dying for to release and feel it couldn’t go without mention.

Dabble DB explains their service as a combination of “the best of group spreadsheets, custom databases, and intranet web applications into a new way to manage and share your information on the web.” However, I recommend watching their 7-minute video on creating an application because these words do no justice in explaining the services capabilities.

With Dabble DB, anyone can easily create their own database of information managed by a custom application built by themselves and work on the database collaboratively. You can create practically any kind of web application in a matter of minutes and without needing to know any programming. For example, you can make an address book, todo list, project management application, bookmark manager, or even a calendar of events in no time. Or maybe you run a company and you’re looking for a way to manage clients or timecards or expense reports. Dabble DB can help you accomplish this.

Pricing Plans start at $10 per month to as much as $150 per month, depending on your needs. You may also request a free one month trial if your not ready to hand over the money. The pricing sounds a bit pricey, and it is, but I feel its well worth it. Especially if you are a coporate company in need of management applications. With a basic account at $25 per month, you get 5 users and can have up to 10 applications. Now, assume that you need a project management application (which usually ranges $15-$30 per month in itself), an expense database, and timecard management. Add all those together and I’m sure its more then $25 per month and you still have 7 more application slots available.

For more details about the service and how it works, you may want to read my review of Dabble DB from back in December. There have been changes to Dabble DB since then, but functionality is still the same.

Update: Sorry folks. I had jumped the gun a little and while it appeared Dabble DB launched, they had not. Although they have announced their pricing plans and are open to one month free trials now rather then only beta invitations. However, your free to have at it, so enjoy!

    I initially got this confused with Dabble, the Internet video company…

    Haha, definitely. I’ve been tricked multiple times since Dabble (video) when I’d get an email or see news of it online, thinking it was Dabble DB because I had been waiting for it for so long!

    [...] It’s similar to other online spreadsheet apps like JotSpot Tracker, Zoho Creator, NumSum and iRows – but also has some simlarities to DIY web app builders like Ning and ‘online database’ apps like Google Base. So the one problem I see is it’s going to be difficult to market Dabble DB, because it encompasses so much. Anyway Solution Watch described it here: "With Dabble DB, anyone can easily create their own database of information managed by a custom application built by themselves and work on the database collaboratively.

    I’ve seen 7 minutes demo, and the price is suitable.

    hmmm – I was looking to invest in Act! 2008 by Sage – but this looks interesting – im just wondering would it be redundant with Act! 2008?
