Great app

This is a great app to get an accurate count for inventory and check counts on delivery trucks, just wished it would save photos for future reference.

Developer Response ,

After counting, tap “Save” to save photos for future reference. You can control the “what will be saved” and “where to save” in the settings "Settings-> Saving & Integration”. For more help Contact

Frustrating for a Professor

I am an accounting professor who teaches auditing, and was planning to use this in my class with a case from Ernst and Young (EY Foundation). This would be amazing software to teach my students. The only issue is there is no educational trial or plan that would allow students to try this in any meaningful way. The case has a picture of over 3,000 sheep in an aerial view from a drone picture for an inventory count. The free trial allows you to count “up to 10 items.” It would be unconscionable to require my students to purchase an $80 software application that they will likely never need again (their firm would have access). So, unfortunately, while the software is likely great, the accessibility is not. It would be more effective to allow the free trial to count any number of things but limit it to 5 (or some number of) separate counts. This is immensely disappointing, as I’m missing out on being able to deliver a great learning opportunity to my students.

All around great

We were looking for an app to count metal pipe for our business and stumbled upon countthings. We tried the free trial and it worked great. The customer service department was excellent and worked with us to develop a customized plan to fit our business needs. We highly recommend this app if you’re looking for an app to count product. Know that their CS will take care of you and any concerns you man have. Thanks Cristian, and the Count Things team!
