Every home needs this

This is a wonderful inventory app. I purchased Nest Egg many years ago after discovering that home insurance may not cover stolen or destroyed belongings if you can’t provide an itemized list with details (serial numbers, model numbers, cost, etc.) so they ‘know for sure’ you actually lost those things.

This app is easy to use and has fields for just about everything possible. It will scan barcodes so you don’t have to manually input every little piece of information. You can take pictures of receipts, items, barcodes, whatever to prove you purchased and owned something. You can back up to Dropbox or iCloud and export in HTML or CSV. The app will also track warranty expirations if you want.

I try to remember to open this app and add everything new I bring into the house. You’d be surprised how much the little things add up, like computer keyboards, toasters, picture frames… when you think about it, if you had to replace everything in your house or apartment, it’d cost thousands of dollars minimum. Make sure your home or renters insurance pitches in if something happens by inventorying EVERYTHING with Nest Egg.

Thank you for your review. We could not have said this any better! Times of loss are very stressful, and documentation is the biggest defense against denial of covered claims.

Really Great App!

I love this app! If I had a wish list for future updates, I would like to see the ability to add multiple locations and to add prices for those extra locations.

I currently use “location” for stores where I can buy that exact time. Then I use “purchase price” for the best regular (non-sale) price. When I find that exact item at another store, if the price is better than the first store, I put the first store’s name and their regular price in the “notes” field and move the new store to “location” and the new lower regular price to the purchase price.

Really, what would help even more would be to leave your currently fields as is and to add 1 permanent “group” of 3 more fields that would be “store”, “store price”, and “store notes” where store notes can be used to type in store sale price or other user requires information. Then add the ability to add more of this “group” where it will automatically give you those same 3 fields listed in the sale order under the first group anytime you click “add group”. This would make it a super awesome app to track and compare regular store prices and even their sale prices (which are usually on some sort of cycle that events repeats - like something at Winn Dixie that is BOGO this week will eventually be BOGO again in the future.)

Overall - a great app! I highly recommend it!!! 😊👍

Worth the easy to use!

WOW... a speedy support team to go with this great app. Within a few hours I had a reply from nest egg on the “BULK” editing feature. This has solved my issue with the app and now my copic markers are happily sitting with the rest of the marker families!

I love this App !!!! I just started using it to catalog my craft room. I have run into an issue that I’m hoping can be fixed in an upcoming update. Can you please add a drag and drop feature while in the editing functions? It would be nice to drag an entire sub category with all its items, and drop it into another category. Having to go into each item to edit the category is FRUSTRATING!


category ‘Copic markers’ with 316 individual items

3 days later you realize you have 2 more marker sets so you add a marker category........

Are you going to go back and edit each one of the 316 copic markers so that all of your markers are in one category? Ummmm, I think not!

I hope That I have been able to demonstrate to you the need for this new feature. My OCD just can’t tolerate a set of markers that are not sitting with their other marker family members.

This would be a perfect 5 star APP if it had drag and drop.
