Records is a powerful, customizable database app for Mac
Records is a new, powerful database app for the Mac that lets you collect and organize all of your important information in one place. You can keep an inventory of items in your home, a recipe collection, and much more using the app's templates. Records is designed and built exclusively for OS X Yosemite.
Records allows you to create a number of different types of databases. Drag-and-drop editing is available in each form, letting you easily add data to your collections. The visual editor lets you customize the layout of your forms, with alignment guides helping you keep them visually impressive. Records is scalable, and supports databases with tens of thousands of records.
You'll find 14 configurable form fields that you can put in your databases. You can choose custom colors for your forms, and insert text fields, pop up buttons, images views, and more. You can also import different templates to use, and share your own custom templates with others.
Records is available for purchase in the Mac App Store right now.

This changed with Yosemite and El Cap. According to their support pages, Apple made some changes (moving from iCloud to iCloud Drive) that they were scrambling to work with.
Earlier this week all my mobile devices lost the ability to download the synced files from the Mac on both iCloud and Dropbox.
The drawback to Filemaker is they require you to use the separately purchased Server program to sync to the FREE mobile apps... a huge investment for a small business person. The biggest drawback to Records at this point is the lack of a mobile client. I really want access to my database on my mobile devices.
