I got this app as part of Setapp and I find it unstable and unreliable, For starters when I add images via Alfred, it just ignores the PNG files. The files that I have managed to add are impossible to find with the "Reveal in Finder" option as it just does nothing but freezes for a bit of time. I will try other alternatives as I need an image storage app for the project I am currently working on. But if someone is not using this app even though they have a license for it, it should give you an idea on the quality of the app. Oh, and the emails I have sent to developer have been ignored. Avoid like the plague!!

Actually installed and tried it. First of all, it is slow to add a mixture of 250 eps and photo files There is no progress bar, that I saw, so I didn't know if I did something wrong, I just had to leave it and come back. Plus it slow to load the tagged items. I think it needs an option to optimize its database and a progress bar at the very least to be worth my time. Nonetheless for image only tags it was pretty fast and the search seemed ok.

This app is in desperate need of an update. Pixave actually does more things than this app can do and on top of that reads photograph data. Just connecting to Dribbble isn't enough. Developers, you need to show people you're working on your app and actually add some features to it.

I used to love Inboard until the "upgrade" to 1.09. Now the menu bar icon no longer appears seriously diminishing it's value. I've been emailing them for weeks and they have been no help whatsoever.

With Ember having become abandonware (it's not even listed anymore on the Products menu on the Realmac site), I've been looking for alternative digital scrapbooks — not many pickings out there (I wonder why, no real demand? Do people largely rely on Pinterest?) — and I've been using trials of Pixave and Inboard. Pixave clearly seems to be taking on Pixa and Ember in terms of features, has a responsive developers, and quite a few bugs. Inboard has a fraction of the features of Pixave, costs twice as much, makes images easily accessible by storing them in its library a folder (not in a proprietary format like Pixave does), and is built by a very small development team (hence response time may vary).

I do like Inboard — I like its simplicity, its Pinterest-like layout, its performance (even with a few hundred images, scrolling is smooth and rendering is near immediate and I've seen a forum post where one users says he has thousands of images in the library and it still performs as it should). For whole page web snaps I've been using the ol' Paparazzi, but Inboard (and Pixave) handles full-page web snaps well and I like that these snaps are displayed in full length in the Inboard Library (rather than in a Finder folder), which makes for a nice browsing/(re)discovery experience.

Inboard has been designed with simplicity in mind (I don't think it will ever have close to the features that Ember had or Pixave currently has), but there certainly is room for improvement. For example, what would make it better (and help make workflows more efficient):

* Adding more options for screen grabs in the menu bar helper menu: Capture Area, Capture Window, Capture Fullscreen
* Putting the Tag group into its own tab (like Together does) so Folders and Tags are not on the same pane (which can get busy quickly)
* Adding Smart Folder and Live Folder options
* Making it so that one can drag one or more items from the Untagged folder (quasi Inbox) to an existing tag and that tag is then applied.
* Providing some basic annotation tools/features
* Letting users move the library to a (local) location of their choice
* Supporting multiple libraries (icing on the cake)
* MOST IMPORTANLY: Cloud sync (Davis, one of the developers, told me its their priority right now, but he couldn't provide an ETA yet).

Although not as ambitious in scope as Pixave, Inboard might get its place in my workflow, once the above—especially some form of cloud sync—are addressed. It’s a really great start for a simple digital scrapbook app that not only performs well but also lets users quickly work with their inspirational source captures. Four stars for what it does based on what it appears to be designed for (not for what it should be in my or other user's minds).

My only hesitation to buy: the price; having been burnt both by Pixa and Ember, I don't want to waste yet more money on an app that may become abandonware (I have no idea how committed the developer team of this app is, but I suspect their company - Regular SIA - may not be their only source of income and commitment). Still, my first impressions after working with this app for a little over a week are very favorable (I've been testing both Pixave and Inboard).

Thank you for such a detailed review! I'm looking for a replacement to the abandoned Ember.

I tried to use this app, but it instantly failed in many important tasks: - Right out of the gate, it was not possible to import multiple pictures. If I select a few hundred images from the "import" menu, it just sits there, doing nothing. When I came back to it later, there was still nothing, but on the second time I started it, it failed to start, instantly crashing. So I uninstalled it, and on that occasion I found it created a folder in a hidden system folder with a few gigabytes of data. No idea what happened. Okay, so I tried to import multiple pictures via drag and drop. I select a bunch, and it only imports the first. The first, not all, not two, nope, just one. I figured it would be tedious to import images and gave up on it. For what its worth, it seems to work okay. If you are okay with importing pics one by one...

I had to give this such a low rating because for whatever reason or whatever I did, it created multiple copies of the original image files inside the same folder without any warning, leaving me a nice mess to clean up. Maybe I imported the same folder twice or whatever but that is no reason to duplicate my files without any notice or warning. And as an extra it also sends your data to google-analytics. It does look nice, and is fairly snappy, but there is no way I can recomend using it.

Did you contact the developer about it? If I run into problems I always contact the developer, before posting here.

@mikokim: That seems to be the norm for most of the reviews I see here on MU. I see so many reviews of a 1/2 star or 1 star, and a lot of the times it's user error. And the vast majority of the problems could be solved by actually going to the developer's website, or even contacting their support. Because of reviews like this, I don't even rely on the star system on MU anymore.

I ran into the same problem. I got Inboard as part of a bundle, used it once to look at some pictures and it seemed a useful app. Now I discovered it probably stored not only the photos I looked at but apparently loaded and saved over 5,000 pictures. In ~/Library/Group Containers/AN5MJ93DEM.com.ideabits the Library has a size of 18 GB. No point contacting the developer, apparently this is the way Inboard works. Needless to say I removed it.
