While I was learning SQL, I had saved a small list of usable bookmarks of good sites from which you can execute SQL queries and I'm still keeping this list. Let me share it with you: activeSQL SQLCourse SQLCourse 2 SQLzoo

MusicBrainz is the most comprehensive database that I know of. It's not very user-friendly, though--it's just a raw database. Last.fm is a nice alternative, but it's not quite as comprehensive. Also, the content is mainly user-generated, which means there may be some mistakes in labeling. Still, it gives some cool statistics and has some other neat features ...

Have you considerd this? The way Google Docs spreadsheets now can be used as (very) simple databases is by using a form (one single form per spreadsheet/workbook) to sequentially input data, o by using an Import function to retrieve data from a public web based source - the ImportRange function allow retrieving data from other Google Docs spreadsheets ...

If you're familiar with spreadsheets like Excel, I would suggest Ragic Builder. You can design your online database just like creating a spreadsheet form, and it can cover pretty much most of what you would need in a business database application. If you're a developer you can extend and customize it with HTTP API and server-side Javascript. www.ragic.com ...

You might consider Amazon's SimpleDB service. If your application is small enough in scale, it would probably be free or effectively free (e.g. less than a dollar per month). You certainly can't beat its reliability, although it won't give you the familiarity of something like MySQL: http://aws.amazon.com/simpledb/

I played around with books.google.com. It works great for keeping an online library. (You can find my personal library here.) There is also the Amazon Reading List Plugin for LinkedIn If you're a big LinkedIn user.

As much as it pains me to say it - use Bing Maps instead. You can store notes, Photo URLs and website URLs to keep tabs on your listings. The My Places lists are also a lot easier for collating into a form of grouping (useful for your Estate Agent example). As you mentioned http://rightmove.co.uk it may be worth looking at other data sets in the UK - to ...

Sounds like you should try Ragic. You design your tables like spreadsheet, but all data is stored in database, and the problem of linking the IDs that you mentioned won't be an issue since you can use a drop down to select entries from another table.

If you're looking for something beyond database tables, like master-detail forms with a RESTful HTTP API. Take a look at Ragic You create forms like creating a spreadsheet form, and all forms comes with a RESTful HTTP API that returns the data in JSON.

My company does a lot of work in the area of API integrations and small business automation, and I've been on the search for something similar. I've got four more services to add to the list. The first three allow you to create and host a database online, and they also make it reasonably easy to create webforms and online reports that hook up to the DBs. ...

You can use Google Sites for the free website part, and then you have access to their API's in any google service via Google App Scripts. Help on using Apps Scripts in your site is available too. After looking at a lot of questions about replacements for Access and Zoho Creator I compiled the following: http://www.zoho.com/creator ...

Nothing that is free will be as reliable as something that you pay for. Where is the incentive for the hosting company to keep it going? This application will be used by many people How many in total and how many at once? This will be important to any solution as you'll need to choose the solution that will cope with the demand. The only guaranteed ...

In terms of a "web app that comes closest to the sketch and or description", my first thought was Google Squared - but alas, it no longer exists (I thought it was an amazing innovation). But here's something to try: http://www.wolframalpha.com. Enter a search term such as mammals or presidents.

If you want your data to be publicly searchable. Ragic should work really well and it has a permanently free community version that does exactly what you mentioned. Survey users can fill out survey using an online spreadsheet form, and entries can be searched with full text search, or by any fields that you created.

If you want a Wiki where anyone can edit the information, then the obvious answer is MediaWiki. They have several Poll plugins and extensions, but the most stable I've found is CommunityVoice: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:CommunityVoice If you just want slick looking polls and surveys, I would go with SurveyMonkey (a hosted solution, no coding ...

Google Apps Sites + Apps Script + GUI Builder (in Apps Script) + App Engine is a possibility, tho would take some work. Note that as mentioned previously, using GDocs spreadsheets (as tables with API lookups) does limit you to how much data you can store. I have used it for writing a custom gmail gadget to include other address info exported from an SQL ...

Try Zoho Creator. You can create the database from scratch or import. Zoho Creator lets you embed Forms and Views in your website by pasting a few lines of code. Pricing depends on number of users & records. For 2 users & 1000 records, it's free.

Another option is Cognito Forms, which is a free online service my team just launched. It is similar to Wufoo and Zoho Creator in terms of being able to quickly build and embed forms. However, since Cognito Forms integrates directly into your site without IFrames, you can manipulate them with custom CSS and JavaScript.

Take a look at http://blog.webservius.com/2010/09/14/introducing-amazon-simpledb-integration/ (solution that turns a SimpleDB table into a full-featured REST API complete with a developer signup page, XML and JSON support, etc)

We've just put up a Beta of a new easy online database tool that supports relational database web apps (Master / Detail records). It sounds like it would be a good fit for a simple contact database (though not sure that you need master/detail tables - perhaps just a single voter table). The site is http://www.rhythmdata.com. All you need to do is tell ...
