Pretty nice for pin collecting

I'm using this to organize a Disney pin collection of about 200 pins. It's nice to be able to use any number of custom category fields with separate display and sorting options. The app can be a bit tedious to use, though, because of all the options. Also, there are a few anomalous display bugs - a number "1" shows up in front of the lowest "tier" category, apparently trying to count the number of items. Since I have no duplicates, every single item has a "1" in front of it. There are two display format options - both sort of list formats. I wish there was a collage-type display option with minimal text details. Still, one of the best collector apps that I've found.

Love this app but..

So far this app does nearly everything I want this type of app to do. I love being able to create my own fields for a collection. I have over 700 pc games and NEED to be able to see what I have so I don’t buy doubles. One thing that could be make this better is the ability to choose a default image compression percentage. Right now it’s 20% but I like 10 better and I have to change it for EVERY entry. Being able to set a default to 10 would be awesome. I hope I don’t run into the same problems as some others have. So far so good.

Have shared

I showed the ap at a Scouting patch collectors event and many more were excited about flexibility. Only draw back observed is the loading time when searching collection. Would be great to search with images off and when search complete turn them on to view. Loading hundreds of images on a search is a challenge.
