Suggestions for VG Collection software?
Posted 18 April 2012 - 05:43 PM
So my question is, do you collectors out there use any specific software/website to keep track of your collection? I'm really looking for something that's integrated with the iPhone or Android so I can quickly reference it.
It'd be really great if it keeps track of multiple editions of games, for instance Resident Evil: Directors Cut has a single case and double case variant for the PS1.

The best option I've found so far is:
However the price tag is rough. $50 for the software, plus another $10 for the iPhone app. And if i'm not mistaken, you have to pay more for an app that will do the barcode scanning for you. I didn't research it much after I saw the initial prices -- I'm not $60+ interested in cataloging my games.

Ugh, the apps have to be manually synced AND you can't add games using it. at $9.99 that's a ripoff.

It handles a variety of things including games, but I pretty much only use the games portion of it.
There's also a free, Lite version that you can use to try it out (limited to 15 items).

Also check out my blog. It's all video game related. I'll be talking about everything from experiences with collecting, to the state of the industry, and much more.

quite an old thread but i think you might still be interested.
I developed a software collection app, called : Coll'Them All. Available in the app store.
See my web site for more information about it -> http://tamedapps.com
Every detail about a game can ben handled (box, instructions, spine card, plastic case, bonus, ...), you can track how much you spend by month, create a wish list, access to a remote database to avoid filling extra information about a game etc...
A major version is about to be released including bar code scanning, arcade, computers and smartphone games management, advanced search, PDF print and email, collection statistics...

I use Mediaman to keep track of the things I own. Its only for PC though.
Collectorz has software that works on PC and Mac, they also have apps for android and iphone/ipad
collectorz.com makes the best tracking software out there. I use it for comics and my wife uses it for books and it is indispensable. Unless you are adding in batches (which I'm not even sure why/how you would with games) or want your collection visible online, there is no reason to buy the $50 version. The $30 has all core functionality that 90%+ of people would ever need. Personally, I have the $50 version and a 4 and a half year subscription to the online version and has revolutionized the way I handle my comic collection. It is literally the first change I have made to how I catalog comics since I bought my first computer back in 1987. There is a free trial version. Try it. It's worth it.
