No export/import function, no update in over a year… probably dead. I liked it at first sight, but it has too many shortcomings. No field for manufacturer and store website… I reckon it's all going into the notes. What a mess. Potential, but sadly neglected by the developer.

I've been overwhelmed lately by things I have to do and get done, but I wanted to say a few things about Compartments. I'll write a thorough review in a few months. 1) Free upgrades for life. 2) With one license you can use Compartments on as many computers as you like so long as they are your (the buyer of the software) computers. 3) Compartments has been on sale for $10 during the entire month of December, and it’s not hard to find Compartments on sale for $10 with a little effort and patience. This software is well worth $10 for what it does. 4) Their web pages are well thought out and will tell/teach of many related things you can do with Compartments concerning home inventory. 5) The developer is working on ver. 2.0 and is open to suggestions, but please keep in mind he would like to keep the app simple and easy to use.

Since this software is basically being developed by just one man, he is working in a vacuum and could use our encouragement I’m sure. i think the simpleness of this software, as well as Chronicle, is great. I haven’t used it enough to give it a review just yet though.

Overall I'm pleased with Compartments. It is very easy to use. I like the notion of defining all the rooms in the house easily and then adding items in what order I choose. Adding photographs is a good idea for insurance purposes.

I also really like the capability to define define collections of items that are independent of specific locations. As an example, you could create a equipment of fishing equipment since it really is not permanent in just one room. It would be neat to map "Collections" objects to specific rooms.

I also discovered the quick item load which allows one to "batch" load a list of items at one time. Then you can go back and add details.

The reports are easy to read. I would like to see additional reports types or the ability to customize reports. I'd also like to see an expansed list of standard named items and to be able to add items and the resue them instead of rekeying.

I expect Compartments to grow in features (e.g. reporting) over time. But I hope they keep it simple. I admit I tend to experiment with a new tool pretty much without studying the help to see how intuitive it is. I found it pretty easy to learn but I did check a could of items in Help.

Developer-

There is no application such as this for gun collectors on the Mac platform. This application already does about 85% of would would be needed to be an excellent collections cataloging application.

I am an avid gun collector with a serious need for an elegant application to track my collection and the various pieces of information relevant to each particular weapon.

There's an untapped market out there and we gun owners are moving more and more to the Mac and away from windows.

Being European, the concept of a guns collection sounds a bit scary, but it did trigger the idea to use this for my fountain pens

Can't say enough good things about Little Fin and their products! I recently bought Compartments based on my experiences with their other product, Chronicle, which I've grown to depend on. The developer is very active and responsive to users, and maintains a democratic bug/feature/wishlist message board via UserVoice… All this plus "Free Upgrades for Life" makes this purchase a MUST!

Nice, but a bit too simplistic with this release. Needs to be much more comprehensive - as the previous poster said, warranty info is needed. Plus serials, insurance, and when warranties expire (like an alarm of some sort). Right now this doesn't offer up anything you can't do with an Excel spreadsheet.

Thanks for the feedback! We've added warranty info, serial numbers, and file attachments (such as receipts) now. We've also completely redone the reports system to make it more comprehensive and totally customizable.

I hope you find it more useful!
