Great Promise but missing crucial features

This would be a must have - except they still haven’t added the ability to export your collection data. It also seems like ‘update pricing’ feature is bugged and doesn’t work at all. Tried reaching out to the devs and got no response. Very disappointing as I really love everything else about the app.

edit*** heard from the dev, they indicated they were fixing the price charting feature and would add exporting in an april update. Price charting now works, but no update yet.

A Nintendo collector's best friend

In spite of already having the book written by Pat Contri that contains most of this info, I found that the unique feature with which you can keep track of your own NES collection worth the price in itself.

This is one of the best resources you can have on hand if you collect, thanks to all of the detail that went into compiling this app and its hardcover book counterpart - from label variations and region exclusive games, to info on some of the more rare and obscure cartridges (even non-licensed ones).

If you are new to the hobby - or are a seasoned game collector - this app is definitely a definitive guide on everything you could ever want to know about the NES library.

Great product but wish it was iPad

This product is great. So many wonderful features, an attractive interface and online support for updated game prices. There are several ways to view the collections/categories. I wish the fast scrubbing alphabetical jump menu on the right was permanent, cause it’s hard to control with it auto-disappearing when not in use. The most critical complaint I have is that I wish this product was on iPad (preferably in landscape).

All in all, a great product and well worth the price.

The search functionality that you requested was added in version 1.2. We hope that you enjoy it!
