Ratings and Reviews
I’ve had both the mobile and Mac versions of this app for several years. When I retired in 2013, I decided my first project would be to document all our stuff, room by room. I was worried that our homeowner’s insurance was under-estimating our valuable possessions. I took pictures of everything (furniture, appliances, electronics, etc) with my iPhone, and uploaded them, along with any receipts, creating a database so detailed that our insurance company was very impressed. Edits are also a breeze. It’s comforting to know that we have this all documented and on file with our agent. I recently had a question about the app, and emailed customer service. I received an answer the same day. It’s hard to find such prompt service anymore. Kudos!
Long, long overdue
I have been using this Home Inventory for many years. I use it to inventory my collections. It is the best! When I have had issues or questions I go to the developers and they offer beyond belief assistance. If you realize it can’t do everything, but it can do everything you need to record your assets you will be quite satisfied.
Great app but....
Great app that works well with the desktop application. The but is... unlike the desktop application, the iOS app don’t allow for scrolling between items. When viewing an item, you must close item or go back then open a different item. Also, unlike the desktop app, the iOS app don’t not support url hyperlinks- even though you’re able to create the Field in the desktop application.
