Have you ever said to yourself "I know I have one of those, but I can't remember where I put it" or "I've seen it recently in a box in the garage, but I can't remember which one." If so, "My Containers" can help you. You may have noticed that most items that you use every day can be thought of as a container. For example, your house is a container of rooms. The rooms are containers of furniture, shelves, bookcases, cabinets, boxes, file folders, etc. My Containers allows you to easily capture the relationships between those containers in a way that makes it easy to keep track of things you may not use very often and also find them when you need them.

My Containers is a powerful hierarchical database for iOS devices with a simple drill-down user interface. It is very easy to create containers and then add items to any container. It is also easy to search and find your items again. Once an item is located, you can tap a single button to quickly show the entire nesting hierarchy of containers to help pinpoint the exact physical location of the located item. In addition, it is very easy to bookmark frequently referenced items or containers and then recall them with a single button tap. My Containers is easy to keep up to date because it is very easy to move or copy items from one container to another or even rearrange items within a container.

In addition, each item that you are tracking can be associated with one or more categories and one or more attributes or groups of attributes. The names of the categories and attributes are completely flexible and can be easily customized to fit almost any specific need. Currently, the value of an attribute can be a text string, a numeric value (with our without a numeric units description), a date, an image, or one of a set of related types (e.g. a specific color from a user defined set of colors).

If desired, the complete container/item hierarchy can be imported from or exported to an XML file for backup purposes or exchanging with other iOS devices through eMail or iTunes Application File Sharing.

Great potential - multi-line text please

This application is very powerful and has tremendous potential and I haven't found anything like it in the app store even though it seems like there should be more apps like this. There are database apps but not hierarchical as well developed as this one.

Request for the developer: before I can begin to use this app, I need a multi-line text attribute type and ideally a rich text multi-line text field.
Thanks for the powerful potential in this app. Please continue working on it.

Best App for organizing your Stuff

This App is pretty amazing. It allows me to log and locate and move things to new locations easily. I admit there are a few elements missing still that keep it from being a perfect solution. Hopefully as the app evolves these elements will be addressed. BTW tech support has been great. Update. I have yet to find a better app for my storage and cataloging needs. The tracking possibility s are endless. I never lose track of my stuff anymore.
