Why choose ApexSQL free tools?

Great software

We strive to ensure that even though these tools are Free, we still strive for a "Best of Class" product, including, performance, usability, and quality in its respective product class. If you think we can improve our Free tools please contact us to let us know how!

Feature rich

Our free tools implement all the features you need for FREE, including SQL formatting, Database object and Text search, Smart renaming, SSMS and Visual Studio integration, SQL refactoring, and much more. These are features that you would actually have to pay for … but don’t have to!

Continuous development

Just like all of our other tools, we strive to release updates to our Free SQL tools regularly, fix problems, improve performance, and add features. We look to maintain host integration with new versions of SSMS and Visual Studio when they come out. See What's next, to check out our product roadmap
