Navicat for MySQL software user review for php nuke by James Meyette

Navicat has many available pieces of software available for developers to purchase and make use of with an intuitive and easy to use user interface Navicat for MySQL is one of the best basic MySQL explorers that you can find out there they offer the software on a trial basis for anyone who wants to use it but that is limited to only 30 days of use after that you have to buy a license which can be rather expensive for some smaller companies or indie developers.

Other than the price being a little bit out of reach for some it is a great tool for accessing your MySQL databases that you may need to use and has an average drop down on the side for all of the tables that you can access on a database specific basis.

The software also allows you to have access to multiple databases at the same time so you don’t have to have multiple instances running, just sign out of one when you are done with it and log into the next one and work away.

In conclusion Navicat has a pretty large downfall in the fact that it isn’t accessible to anyone who would like to use it but if you have the funds to make a purchase and you are impressed with it after you have tried it with the trial then it just may be the ideal MySQL platform for you.
