Love the new features

The loan history feature is tremendous. Now I know who borrowed each album in the past, and I can also see who my most frequent borrowers are.
And I appreciate that it’s much easier to automatically scan all my bar codes now.
This app is packed with surprising features. Someone really thought this through. I can’t get over that the developers try to fulfill every suggestion they get. Good job!

Just purchased the app today...

Just purchased the app today and already having issues. Was hoping to scan all my movies today but halfway through, I keep getting a cannot connect to server error over and over. If this gets resolved, I will definitely give 5 stars.

Do NOT upgrade this app to MovieBuddy+ or MovieBuddy pro

Upgrading through the app is an “in app purchase,” so family sharing will not apply to your MovieBuddy purchase. You will have to buy the app again to put it on another device. Then you will have MovieBuddy+ on one device and MovieBuddy on the other device. MovieBuddy will NOT sync if you have different names for the apps, and you cannot change the app name. So you have to uninstall the upgraded version of MovieBuddy and install MovieBuddy+ to be able to sync your library, on an app that you paid for twice. Save yourself from buying the app twice and do NOT upgrade this app.

Developer Response ,

We are truly sorry about this issue! In-App Purchases are not supported in Family Sharing due to Apple limitation. (see This limitation is not related to our apps and there is no way we can target it... In general, when intending to use any paid app in Family Sharing, users should always prefer purchasing the app directly on the App Store rather than via In-App Purchase (when this is possible). We are sorry again for this inconvenience. Note that you can ask Apple for a refund, and we assume they will approve it if you'll provide them your use case. See
