* Sadly, Dabble DB is no more* see http://dabbledb.com/
DabbleDB lets users build multiple database applications from a single database or spreadsheet. All users have to do is create a single database on DabbleDB and they can create multiple database applications like charts, maps and calendars. The product helps to leverage a single data source to do more work for you.
DabbleDB announced a second product in August 2007 called Dabble Do that is built on the Facebook platform. The product lets you create to do lists and assign list task to Facebook friends. To do list competitors include Ta-da List, Tudu List and Bla Bla list.
Most of the DabbleDB database applications are developed with business users in mind, but the new Dabble Do product is built with consumers in mind, a point Richard MacManus highlights well. Dabble Do’s creator even calls it a “social to-do list”.

The Dabble Do Facebook app is fun and light. You can add items to your own to-do list or send to-do items to your friends. When you want to add a new to-do item to your list all you have to do is provide a title, detail when it is due and add optional tags.
Dabble Do’s text recognition is excellent so you can provide vague words like “tomorrow” and it will figure out what you mean. For instance, if you enter “Go to the Giants game tomorrow” on a Tuesday then Dabble Do will enter the item as “Go to the Giants on Wednesday.”
Users can easily make on-the-go changes to their to-do list items by locating them and making necessary changes to date, time etc. If your friends aren’t completing their to-do items you can “whip them”. Your friends also have the choice to refuse the to-do request or pass it to someone else.

The DabbleDB database allows you to create your own applications or “view” your inputted data through different preloaded applications like tables, charts, maps and calendars. It is a really useful way to make the most of your data without entering twice.
The table view displays data just like Excel with columns, rows, formulas and subtotals. Once you have created a table with your data you can easily attach additional data to enable other views. For instance, you can attach regions and countries to your database data and it can be displayed in map view. Or, you can add date and time data and it can be viewed in calendar mode.
Adding new data to your database is really easy. You can import data from CSV or Excel files. Exporting your database is a breeze also with RSS, JSON, KML and ICAL compatibility.
