Collections is an inventory application for organize, find and share virtually everything you own. Imagine all of your collections into a single application, a realistic representation of your tastes and passions.

Adding items into your library couldn't be simplest.

The item finder allows to search by EAN, UPC, ASIN and/or any other keyword, for example title, author, director, actor and a huge etc.

With your iSight, place the product bar code in front of the camera and that's it, simple as that.

For an application like this, it absolutely essential to have a trial version available from the developer's web site. Oh wait...there isn't a web site. Hmmmm.

The only way to evaluate the lofty claims made in the description is via a trial, or to pay the MAS $20. That's a pretty expensive way to see if the app really performs as stated, and if the app really meets your needs.

If you look on the MAS, the reviews aren't very favorable. Worse yet, if you click the developer's web site and support links it takes you to an iCloud sign on page in your browser! What? How did this even make it to the MAS?

Maybe this app is all that is stated, but I for one am not about to plunk down $20 to find out, especially when there no--as in NONE--developer support.

I honestly can not understand why there is no e-mail or contact the developer website. I would like to make a proposal to translate the app into my language, but how? The developer does not want to disclose the email or website? Why? Zero star for this! Inform the e-mail or website and give 5 stars.

Hello! I have tried every way possible to get my hands on this app. It seems to be exactly what I need! Problem is I live in sweden, and the appstore link only tells me that the item isn't available in the swedish appstore! And the link to the developers site doesn't work. I appreciate all help! Many thanks, Moa

I really like the Collections app so far. I am very new to MAC and still learning my way around. Entering my books, music and DVD's into the app is pretty fast and easy. Is there a way to fully edit the add blank item features? I would like to be able to add the book, cd or DVD cover and also edit the publisher and publish dates. I have searched the help file and google and haven't found anyway to accomplish this.

Hello, I received an email about a week ago with a very similar question to yours. If you made the question​​, I hope my response has been good. But, just in case.

You can use the Creators field to assign the author and/or the editor.

There are several ways to assign a cover to an item. To assign a cover image to your item.

Select an item.
Drag and drop an image from Finder to the item's preview in the properties inspector, if the properties inspector is not visible, select, View > Show Info.
Select Item > Cover > Assign.
Select (the menu item) Item > Cover > Find, if that does not work Select, Edit > Find Cover, enter some keywords and hit return.

Unfortunately, this software is basically just like iTunes with a different look and a "borrowed" feature. It is limited to the exact same formats for files that iTunes is limited to. It only lists items in your iTunes library. You can not drag a folder with various formatted files in it (.avi, .mp4, .flv, .m4v) and have those items added. You must add items ONE FiLE AT A TIME. And remember, they must be iTunes supported formats so many files simply can't be added.

Honestly, use iTunes. Collections is merely iTunes + a "borrowed" feature and it is ABSOLUTELY not worth $30.

Oh boy, based on your "review"… I think I need to extend the app description…

Firstly, the app was created to catalog, browse, import and share your music, movies, TV shows and books, so you can keep a digital record of your actual items, retrieves all the information from the internet.

Secondly, this app is not a media player, was not created to list items on your hard disk. The app allows you to create tracks, and if you want you can also assign an URL to those tracks, but (I must be clear on this) the app was not created for this, this functionality is just a bonus.

The library (or content) of iTunes, is loaded by a plug-in (there are three types of plug-ins for now, exporters, importers and libraries), so you can compare the items in Collections agains the iTunes library (for whatever reason you can imagine) and/or to copy items from iTunes. These plug-ins are called "Collections Library", and they can load basically anything, photos, movies, PDF files from folders and/or from other applications, etc (by the way, if someone has any idea for a plug-in please let me know). If you or someone else wants the contents of the folder "Movies" (for example) is shown by the application, a plug-in is the answer, again these functionalities are just an extra bonus.

All the best,
Dante.

I meant "your real items"… "so you can keep a digital record of your real items".

Wow! Quite the price jump from version 1.0 (FREE), I wish I was able to download it from the Apple Store then... That way it would recognize it as already purchased!

It's a nice little piece of software but a little too pricey for me to continue with its growth. :(

Hi, Dumond,

The free version of the app works exactly as the pay version, but limited to 50 items.

All the best,

Doesn't seem to work on 10.6.8. EXTREMELY buggy! Covers not appearing from itunes collections, nothing happens when I add from amazon, nothing happens when I add blank.

Looks nice, just wish I could use it!

Also, "View as" icon, search field and scale slider is unclickable. And when the app is opened, it opens in the background... I need to click on the dock icon a second time to bring it to front.
