MyGearVault is the best way to “Input • Organize • Protect” your gear!
MyGearVault is a FREE app designed to help photographers and videographers from professionals, to amateurs, to even hobbyists, know what they have and what it’s worth.
Quickly and securely input all of your gear into your personal vault. We’ve made it easy for you to store all the important information about your gear. Store and verify your serial number, picture of your receipt, date purchased and much more. Even if your item doesn’t have a serial number ,you can still add it to your vault.
We know you have a lot of gear, that’s why we help you organize it in a few unique and effective ways. First, each item can be saved into a specific category (i.e. Cameras, Lens, Computers, Data Storage, etc.). When you click on a category, you will see the total value of items based on the gear inside. Secondly, you can create custom kits of gear, like a wedding kit, travel kit, studio kit, video kit and more. This is a great way to know the value of gear you’re taking with you.
Protect your gear. Get piece of mind that your gear has a level of protection when it’s stored inside your vault. For example, if your camera is stolen, simply click the “stolen” button inside the app and your serial number will be entered into our stolen database. If someone tries to verify your lens as their own, we will be notified.
We at MyGearVault understand the importance of protecting your gear. That’s why we’re working with licensed professionals with access to top-rated insurance companies to find a solution that fits your needs. Right now inside MyGearVault you can take a short questionnaire to receive an insurance quote. And in about one business day, you can have full comprehensive coverage from one of our licensed insurance partners.

Ratings and Reviews
Meh so far.
This app would be slightly useful to "keep track of my gear" if I felt I had just so much stuff that I was always losing lenses or bodies. But that's only assuming that the search feature returned useable results. It simply seems to list everything EVER made from a manufacturer instead of smartly searching exactly what I'm typing. Let's say Fujifilm for example. I type "Fujifilm 16-55" and ht enter. The app should be narrowing the thousands of "Fujifilm" results to reflect the next entered data of "16*", however doesn't seem to. So you still have lots of scrolling to do with the app when searching for your gear. It simply takes far too much time when what you're seeing is just thousands of unrelated things in the list with no results that are close to what you wanted. Ended up just using my trusty excel spreadsheet in the end.
App works perfectly fine, these negative reviews are just silly.
App works totally fine. Does everything you need to catalog your gear (hence the name i suppose) and I can tell a lot of thought and consideration was put into its design. This app sort of has 2 other functions that you wouldnt immediately assume from what its being advertised for. One is a dedicated tab to helping you insure your gear, which depending on how you feel about that can go either way; and the other is two update users of videos and user info from the Fro himself. At best, if you are a fan of his content and need something to catalog your gear, this app is perfectly fine. However if you're not a fan of Jared, the app still works just as well for cataloguing gear. You just never have a reason to scroll past the first tab. I never really write reviews but I felt it was my obligation to say something after seeing how stupid and unnecessarily negative some of these reviews were. I almost didnt download this app because it was so bad. Its a shame, i see it as something well made and genuinely useful.
Simple straightforward app that seems to work well if you don't mind storing your data in the cloud. Two things I'd like to see:
1. iPad version: iPhone is convenient, but if I'm entering the data on a hundred items, the larger device is preferable. Since much of my gear is 20-30 years old, it doesn't show up in the list and has to be manually entered. This gets old on the iPhone.
2. Non-Photo Gear: I know Fro is a photo guy and this is targeted at photographers, but a little work adding the ability to customize categories would make this really useful for other users. As it is I have, maybe $3k in photo gear, but over $30k in music gear I'd like to manage as well.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
