Best value and on it’s way to being excellent
I looked into many different softwares, mainly for inventorying high-end art collections. Most of the softwares specific to this need are truly expensive ($250-$5000) or only available as a subscription service (I try to avoid subscriptions like the plague). It came down to Binary Formations Home Inventory versus Blue Plum Software’s Home Inventory. Both excellent, versatile softwares, for more than a fair price. Honestly, I like Blue Plum's design a little better, aesthetically speaking, but ultimately they did not have enough customizable fields for me, and I ended up switching to Binary Formations.
There is a little bit of a learning curve involved. Not everything functions the way I would expect it to, especially in terms of shortcuts and workflows that one typically sees on the Mac. But overall, this is an excellent piece of software that is very versatile, can be customized, and includes all the major features that I’m looking for, including remote entry on iPad and a light version for viewing on iPad. I am still navigating my way through the interface, so I’m not completely versed in it yet, but I’m very pleased with what I have been able to do in a short time and the logic and versatility of the system.
I believe this software will only get better as the developers continue to work on it and add features. I have contacted them a few times now, and they are extremely responsive. This alone is well worth it.
Using for Years and Still Loving It
I have been a user of Home Inventory for many years. This program is straightforward, packed with functionality, and answers all my inventory needs. It’s not tied to a subscription (I don’t know how they can afford to offer this thing without one), and it’s very thoroughly and well-developed. This is, by far, the most useful third party app I have on any of my devices. I use both the mobile backup and the mobile entry apps that they offer as free tools to work in tandem with the Home Inventory. They both work easily and make inventorying enjoyable. I used this when all I wanted to do was to track all of my cool stuff plus be able to add photos. Now that I care about evidence in case of theft, insuring values, etc., Home Inventory allows for all of the reports and receipts that go along with that. Adding barcodes makes this app that much better. I also really appreciate the numerous ways to sort and look at my inventories. Good app. Always works. Easy to use. Full of features.
Great I’ve used since 2011
The thing about home inventory apps is you want it to last for the long haul as it is a big project to initially get it done and then it needs updating over the years. This app has been working and inproving for me since 2011. I recently reopened the inventory file and could not back it up as I had changed computers, changed where I stored the back up (different places on dropbox) etc etc. Yesterday I sent an email to customer service at 11:31pm to see how to get back updating and backing up. At 7:59am the next day I had simple instructions on how to resolve the issue. ("To fix this go to Preferences under the Home Inventory menu, then click Backups at the top of the preferences window. Either un-check and re-check the backup option or click Change Backup Folder and select the folder you wish to backup to and you should be okay from then on."- duh). Big thanks for continuing to improve the app so I can continue to create a more accurate inventory of my house.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
