Airtable is to spreadsheets what Trello is to bullet-lists. And just like Trello, teams can go months or years using Airtable and not even realizing that they are on the free plan. Unlike Trello, Airtable’s strengths lie in the complexity it is able to achieve while still keeping a straightforward user interface.

The pricing plans are set up in a way where small teams don’t even need to upgrade based on the number of entries, as long as they clean up their backlog every now and then. There are, of course, some very beneficial features in the higher pricing tiers.
