This new interface is not usable with the applications that I developed with the old interface. Can anyone recommend an alternative to Quickbase? I need to find a solution quickly, and I don't want to invest anymore time into Quickbase.

Although there are changes to the way QuickBase appears to Users, the functionality of QuickBase has changed.  Did you create customized dashboards which are not working?  If so, are they modified to work properly with the new UX URL changes?  What specifically is "not usable".  While most administrators would admit that there are adjustments to make, and recommendations for changing the table-landing pages to custom reports; it is hard to see how the new interface is "not usable".  Could you elaborate a little more?

This is more of an answer to the previous answer. For our application, I had a coupe of javascript programs that would not work with the new UI. I was never able to find out why. It was not the case of just switching to use the new domain name. "Select_nodes" just stopped working. No error return, nothing. I didn't have the option to switch to another solution, so I needed to rewrite the javascript into Jquery. Yes, it was better in the long run. But as I didn't know JQuery, and my javascript experience was limited to just writing the initial programs many years ago, I was up a creek and not very happy about it.
I got the programs done 1 day after QB switched us to the new UI. I was so busy working on the new programs I never had the chance to walk the users through the changes in the UI and so on.

So, yes there are things that didn't work with the new UI. No, I wouldn't have recommended the Original poster to give up on Quickbase. There just wasn't any information out there about how to get around these problems, and I can understand frustration levels could be very high.
