You should use the latest version.
Please share with us what you mean by database app as there may already be an extention that does exactly what you want.

@wwhite thanks for your response what I meant was i want to build an interactive web- application for baby sitters, where i can match the both parties base on certain criteria that a questionnaire filled by both parties suggestions will help or if there are another way. I will be grateful

Thanks

You will need to talk to a developer. There may be a simple way to do it, but it sounds to me like a "Match" type logic where two different groups fill out profiles or forms and then some logic "matches" them together.
Basically it would extend the users profiles and then when a user belonging to the "Parent" category of users it would create a list of the "sitter" group who met your criteria and display them. Thats just a start

Not at all, only that you will need to be proficient with php/mysql and Joomla. There are many capable of doing it, and several different approaches that will give you the same result.

I suggest a listing component like RS Directory which has radius search and unlimited custom field system which will allow for all the matching criteria. The sitters would submit their data and the parents would search using the various filters. It also has a billing system which could charge is client side or both. There is also a rating and review function so parents can berate or laud a sitter.

Refer to the information here: https://extensions.joomla.org/extension/rsdirectory/

You can also find the Documentation, Support and Demo links on the JED listing (JED = Joomla Extensions Directory).

Once you get the component, all the supporting plugins and modules will be included. A demo is at http://directory.rsjoomla.com/ The admin demo is at http://demo.rsjoomla.com/administrator/ so you get to play with it until you are satisfied.

"nice" is relative to your preference, however all the template sites that support Joomla have free copies available, though they will not have all the fandangles included with their paid templates. Otherwise use any search engine to query "free joomla templates"
