I have about 400 DVDs. How do I keep track of them all? I used to use my brain. I still know every DVD that we have, but the other 5 members of the household have no clue what's on the shelf. To solve that issue, I downloaded iCollect Movies from Hooked In Motion, LLC. ($2.99)
Basically, grab your DVDs (or BluRays), Barcode Scan them, and Viola, you have a beautiful list of your collection.
Bottom Line: iCollect Movies is well worth $2.99 to keep your movie collection in order. Easy to use. Their customer support is excellent. I received an immediate answer to any question or suggestion. firstname.lastname@example.org
