Ekaterina Nebogina

We are glad to announce a new version of our professional Android database app – MobiDB Database Designer with a new long awaited feature that will significantly improve user experience and will reduce time for adding new entries.

The problem with really complex and big databases is that such dropdown lists got from the related table can be really huge and searching for the necessary value may become quite intricate.
