Tinyspark is on a distinguished road

I'm about to start my own new business, offering business development and prospecting consultancy services to marketing agencies. For most of the last 15 years I've been doing the 'new business' function in-house and have been PC-based, using Sage's ACT! product.

Now I'm starting my own business I can choose which OS to go with and as I've always used Apple products at home, it makes sense to manage my business on Apple too.

The reason for the post is to ask for your experience using the various Mac-based database applications so I can make an informed decision about which two to AB test. Ideally I'd like to use something that gives me either multiple databases (as i'll be working for multiple clients) or at least the functionality to perform separate look-ups for each client. I'd prefer something cloud-based to eliminate the need for synching, and finally it would be great to be able to access all the info on Powerbook, iPhone and iPad too. A good looking reporting function is also important...

I've used filemaker in the past and really liked its simplicity and the reporting function on Filemaker 11 looks interesting. I've also initially checked out Daylite, Capsule and Salesforce and would love to hear user's experiences of these and any others I haven't considered!

Sorry for the long-winded post but any advice you could give would be really appreciated...
