Yep...Online and IOs and Android apps. I thinks its great.
That's about it. Compounded with not wanting to manually re-build a 2000+ item database!
Have you taken a look at Bruji Software? They make DVDpedia (along with Bookpedia and CDpedia), and they also offer an iOS app called Pocketpedia that ties into them and has a bar scan reader.
FWIW, I used to use DVD Profiler but they were very late to support Android so I switched to MyMovies. Now the MyMovies app that I paid for will not allow me to catalog my UHD movies. I have to buy it again for $8. So now I am looking at DVD Profiler again. No way I'm paying that much for a catalog. I know MyMovies does much more, but I do not use those features and I have no desire to pay (again) for features I do not need. So I am also interested in this thread. DVD Profiler or???
Understandable. They used to have an iOS app, but it relied on some proprietary Amazon info that was too expensive for them to maintain and they had to pull the app. Which is a shame, because It would be really handy to have on my phone.
It does catalog books, CDs, gadgets, tools, toys, etc. Basically all sorts of stuff.
DVDPedia app has got a mobile solution; but reviews are sparse and have complaints about its scanning weaknesses. The desktop solution with four separate apps is not what'd we like but it's not a deal breaker.
The mobile app is only $3.99, so we could buy to try.
Do any of these apps have options to list your library online, so friends could browse your collection to pick a movie for a movie-watching party?
I'm trying trakt.com, but it's not a great solution to my problem.
DVD Profiler features an online list, it's a bit outdated looking but does the job (see my sig for an example of my collection on there). There's also a features in the app to filter by actor/crew. genre etc. to make choosing a film easier (I use it all the time) and a "lucky dip" option.
DVD Profiler has never let me down -- I highly recommend it.
I was discussing this over in a DVD Profiler thread. Unfortunately, its web view doesn't suit my needs. Too minimal, not useable by Muggles for browsing a movie library.
Ah, that's a shame!
My Movies does - I give out the link to friends who want to borrow from my collection so they can see what I have.
I was getting excited when I saw the MyMovies online demo. And then I discovered it's unusable on an iPad. so close...
The wife bought MovieBuddy.
MovieBuddy Pro - Movie Library Manager by Kimico, Ltd.
It's done a great job of scanning the movies. The database can be stored in Dropbox, so both of us can use the app on our devices and both access the same library. It's got an iPad and iPhone interface.
It doesn't do TV series, an unfortunate weakness. (And The book version is terrible at scanning books. )
There's no web interface. But I've got trakt.com working well enough for a public view when needed.
