It's very effective to use it as a lookup table. For example, I'll use it to list both MemberStack.io and Webflow.com unique id's in one row. At times, when using tools like Zapier, I only know one of the id's but I need to look up the other. From Zapier I can query my Airtable rows and "lookup" the other unique id.
It's essentially a database with a really beautiful front-end—makes building new things (and using the Airtable API as a database) super easy.
Airtable is super forgiving when working with data (for the most part) compared with other database systems I've used. I'm so impressed by the complexity it supports while still being intuitive and super fast.
It's really flexible and can be used for so many different things (project management, issue tracking, workflows, etc...)
Super flexible. I really believe in the MVA - minimum viable airtable - idea of scaffolding a new app. Additonally, I find there are very few things I can't do with it.
Airtable is the most versatile database tool I have come across. I use the Airtable block a lot. My current favorite block is the Clearbit block which I am using it for personal CRM.
I love how user friendly Airtable is, its really easy to get started!
