Pros: Navicat is an excellent database client, it simplifies a lot of work, it makes backups, the migration of information between tables even between different databases is simply incredible. The option to synchronize data is something that I use frequently in a positive way and I love that it is possible to automate the tasks. The graphical interface is very beautiful and attractive, it makes the work pleasant, it is very intuitive, which allows discovering new functionalities as the tool is used. A great point in its favor is the report creator. This functionality is vital for my daily work. Reverse engineering for an amazing and surprising database has helped me develop new systems that already exist and do not have database documentation. The SQL editor is very well done. I could not ask for more than what needs to be done.

Cons: Not everything can be perfect Navicat can not connect to the database DB2-AS400 which forces me to connect from another client this feature is important, another point against Navicat is that there is no native version for the Linux environment is necessary the wine emulator.

Overall: Navicat has brought me many benefits, first of all it saves me time, there is no need to use several database clients, it allows me to automate tasks that run at night outside working hours, generate reports for my bosses, migrate information from one database to another. I am very happy with this software simplifies my life at work.

Pros: Its totally graphical user-friendly interface, which allows to carry out from the conceptual design to the physical design of the database in a very easy way, which makes it a powerful tool to be used by people who are not experts in the database administration. In addition to maintaining high compatibility with different DBMS such as MySQL, MariaDB, SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL and SQLite from a single application. Compatible with cloud databases such as Amazon RDS, Amazon Aurora, Amazon Redshift, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud, Google Cloud and Alibaba Cloud. Added to this allows you to manage the database easily and quickly, gives you the options of creating views, triggers, backup functions, synchronization, among others. You can create queries easily. Being able to create the code automatically compatible with the selected DBMS. It provides you with a free trial version for 14 days. Compatible with Windows, Linux and Mac. In addition to having extensive documentation and sites that provide support and documentation

Cons: Actually there is no feature that I do not like Navicat, the only thing I could say is that it is so useful that sometimes the people from so much use it lose a little bit of alacrity to download the database directly by console

Overall: It has been a great help in the creation and administration of database that I have had to manage, as well as being very useful in the classes taught in database design, since it allows me to make a comparison of how to administer a database by console and as with a graphic tool

Pros: My first contact with Navicat was about nine years ago, and I was learning SQL at that time. It helped me a lot because with it I didn't need to see only complex SQL strings at the console, no, Navicat has a very good interface where you can see the databases in a graphical way.
The interface is very attractive and well organized, but it doesn't takes away it's power, you can do many things with the SQL editor; you can create functions, views, tables, indexes, you can do maintenances, check indexes and obviously view data.
It's rock solid, you can trust it to make your database exports (quick backups) and also to restore data.
It connects to many different sources, such as Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite and many more...
It worth the price!

Cons: It cannot deal very well with network oscillations, but I guess this is not the tool's fault, maybe the database drops the connection when you quickly disconnect from one network and reconnects. For example, if I'm executing a long SQL string with many INSERTs statements and my network drops for a couple seconds, the SQL Editor window freezes and the instruction is interrupted.
Ideally, it should try to reconnect after and continues from where it stopped, but it doesn't.
Again, this is the only con I have agaist Navicat and maybe this couldn't be the tool's fault.

Overall: Faster SQL script learning curve, better productivity and great tool reliability.

Pros: Easy connection management, ability to save queries, easy access to tables,queries,stored procedures and triggers. This tool is easy to use yet powerful, I really like the tabbed interface approach allowing for grouping of separated queries and tables.

Cons: I would really love it if they could add the ability to search for a column in the table view by name, I waste a lot of time scrolling horizontally through tables looking for specific columns, granted, I could write a quick select query to find the data but sometimes it is really useful to be able to update the tables directly for small updates.

Overall: Very easy to find data and update records. Data syncronization tools are very intuitive and easy to use.

Pros: Several databases from the same application. Easy to use.

Cons: Sometimes it can get a bit slow; However, that only happens when very large queries are made. Otherwise the application works just fine.

Overall: I think I've been a Navicat user for over six years. What I like most is that from a simple interface, I can manage a large number of databases. Create queries, filter results and even use the console.

It is a great tool with many features. You can currently connect to the following databases: MySQL, MariaDB, SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and SQLite.

Navicat Premium enables you to efficiently transfer data across various database systems or to plain text files with SQL format and encoding. Batch jobs for different types of databases can be scheduled to run at a specific time.

Pros: Feature-rich, easy to use, great connectivity. Create databases in Navicat is a breeze, whether you're a DBA or a developer. I used MySQL workbench, and that got me by. Then I tried Navicat and was immediately aware of all the things MySQL Workbench is missing. Navicat is one of those pieces of software you need your developers to have access to.

Cons: It is definitely pricey. When I was a contractor and first purchased this, I was not impressed at the price, mainly because I would have to deal with MySQL, SQL Server, Postgres, and other database backends, so I had to buy the full package.

Pros: Navicat is my favorite tool and a cornerstone of my development toolbox of programs that I use on a daily basis. From cloning websites to creating quick database scripts for chron jobs and timed reports. I highly recommend it.

Cons: There's really not much I could suggest to improve Navicat. Maybe a cloud synch to store database connection settings and possibly an option to store backups to online file storage such as dropbox, Google drive, etc.

Overall: I can definitely say this software has increased my productivity and allowed me work with some databases that I was unfamiliar with.

Pros: Having used this tool has made my job tasks a lot easier. With having a lot of SQLite and MS SQL DBs on our systems, this gave me a possibility to do a lot of test queries before putting them in the system which doesn't have such options.
Doing reports has become an easy task.

Cons: It takes a little while to get used to using this, but It's not that bad.
Sometimes the Beautify SQL feature makes a mess.

Overall: I have had a better experience in general database adminstration and development, ability to connect to multiple databases fromt the same interface as well as easiness in query editing.

Time saver. Not necessary to learn or install every management software for every database engine.

Pros: Offers a nice and tight native feeling user interface. Most tasks can be accomplished in a straightforward manner, quickly and efficiently. Great integration of copy and paste for quickly moving data to other apps, e.g. Excel or Sublime Text. I really like the editing and filtering options in the grid view, they are really powerful in comparison to most GUI clients

Cons: Upgrade pricing is too high. There are way too many different flavours and confusing purchasing options. There is gap between appstore and webstore, with disadvantages for the appstore user.

Overall: Data Manipulation, Extraction, Import etc

Great tool for connecting to multiple DBs at once.

Pros: This is our goto product for all the various databases we use. It is much easier to use 1 tool to connect to them then 3 or 4.

Cons: I don't like having to renew my license each year. I'd rather just buy the product since we never upgrade it.

Pros: - Supporting Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, SQLite and Oracle
- Excellent choice of import/export options
- Nice UI, Easy to use
- Data and structure synchronization
- SQL code completion

Cons: - The cost of a license ranges from $79 to $998

Overall: I've tried many GUI but most only supporting a single database such as MySQL. However, Navicat Premium allows you to work with most database types: Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite and even Oracle.

On top of that, the interface for managing the creation of tables and databases is a lot more feature-packed than that of most free tools. Managing and creating things like Stored Procedures is also a lot easier and helped with autocompleting your query code as well.

Comments: I'm using Navicat Premium. The best part of Navicat premium is the database migration features, which you can drag and drop tables from Oracle to MySQL, PostgreSQL to MySQL and vice versa. or to a plain text file with designated SQL format and encoding. Meanwhile, you can transfer database data between different servers across various database platfrom.

For those who work cross-database, Navicat Premium is definitely must-have database management software that removes all the headache of working with multiple applications & compatibility problems between databases.

Comments: This tool is great for developers that heavily rely on database management. It has support for most of databases out there. The UI is also great and constantly improving(unlike other bloated solutions). The pricing is also nice, as it is a one time fee (license). The biggest plus in my opinion is the multi platform availability(Windows, Linux, Mac)

Comments: As an admin of many databases - and not a subject matter expert in any of them - Navicat has been my saving grace. I'm able to connect, configure, migrate, and schedule tasks via Navicat with little working knowledge of SQL. I couldn't do all the fun and exciting things I do without Navicat.
