Lacking a field for the number of an item The app can be useful, but it's clearly designed with single items that have a warranty in mind, and not consumables you have several of. It's nice that you can add expiration dates for food and get a warning for them, but what I want in an inventory app is to see, how many of one item I have, with the number next to the item name and best also optionally a custom warning color (green, yellow, red) to let me see at a glance, what items I have enough of (according to the limits I set for these items).
Best home inventory It was a long time I was looking for an app like this. I've tried almost all the apps and this is just what I wanted. I've searched throughout the app store for: inventory, home, house, catalog, room, cabinet, drawer, space, box, food, database and found nothing decent except a few specific apps. This one is completely customizable. It allows you to define a hierarchy of objects, each with a picture/icon. In this way it is easy to search for your old Halloween costume and find out in which box of which drawer of my closet I put my screwdriver. All presented in an intuitive and clean interface.
Inoperable due to bugs After repeated attempts to get the app to function, I have finally given up. It crashes every time you try to add an image rendering the app basically useless. 😟 It was a terrific idea that I hope gets repaired one day.
Has lots of potential Finding a good home inventory app is very hard. This one has a relatively simple UI but it is definitely NOT intuitive to use. For example, they use a camera icon to mean "Add item" instead of the standard "+". The UI says "Press camera icon to take a photo" but they mean the image of a camera and NOT the camera icon (see above.). Having a hierarchy organizing items is good but learning to navigate it easily takes some practice. You can add additional info to an item but they do not automatically show when you open it later; you need to touch the add button again which can be annoying. I also found that about 50% of the time when I take a new photo to associate with some item, the photo is not saved (nor does the crop UI appear). Plus, what if I do not want to crop a photo? I cannot seem to keep the entire photo which is a annoying. Why can't the entire photo simply be scaled down to fit? An update to the UI to make it more intutive to use would certainly earn the app another star. (That and fixing the camera oddness definitely will!)
Liked the idea, but buggy software I like the idea of taking a picture and cropping to identify the item. But when I list the item and say "locate" it crashes every single time.
Need easier operation I like the concept very much. But i think its a lil bit hard to know how to operate the function. May be u can use graphic UI like "disk ussage" apps or space monger on windows. Like a virtual room. Easier up (exit) or enter the room / cabinet. And use a simple click or menu button to add or edit the items. And also we need backup n restore function to switch to other device. I think,for now,i'm looking forward like folder structur (like windows explorer on windows) for easy manage n view.
