A Mac App Store Editor’s Choice, Home Inventory has been helping people organize and store information about their home and its contents for over 11 years.

Called "Quick and easy to use" by the New York Times, Home Inventory is the ultimate tool for cataloging information about your home & belongings for insurance, home management, and estate planning purposes.

Home Inventory helps you organize the receipts, warranty information, product manuals, maintenance schedules, repair and improvement notes, and other important information about your home and its contents. With Home Inventory, all of this information is in one place, and easy to find.

Many do not realize they are underinsured until disaster strikes and they need to file a claim. Home Inventory can deal with the complex coverage rules and limits found in most insurance policies and its coverage analysis tools let you know exactly where you are under and over-insured.

Best of all, Home Inventory is completely private. Your inventory is stored on your Mac not on some company’s server, where it could be hacked or sold to other parties. And should something happen to your Mac, Home Inventory’s robust backup features can backup your data to your iPhone or iPad and elsewhere. You can also back it up in a cloud synced folder on your Mac such as Dropbox or iCloud Drive. You are always in control of how and where your inventory information is kept.

It’s OK but..


We are now on version three of this app and it still has numerous things I call "Stuff in need of solving” Sins for short. There are too many little frustrations to enumerate but the really irritating thing is that they ought to be very easy to fix. If they are design decisions - then the developer needs to actually use his app or watch a few other folk struggling with it. On version 2 I deserted the app and and made my own in FileMaker. Mine still works but Home Inventory does have some nice features which my app doesn’t and frankly, I couldn’t really be bothered to update it, so I tried this updated professional app - diappointingly, it stll fails to make the grade in several ways - nothing major that I have found but numerous things that detract from a smooth, pleasant experience.

If you are prepared to put up with the things that bug you - it works and won’t let you down in a big way.

Great App, gets better with every update


Ive been using this app for years, after trying and failing, to create my own using spreadsheets and Bento (yes, I was the one that bought it!) I find that this app does exactly what I want in a very friendly and easy to use manner. They have superb support that I have used a couple of times. The complimentary IOS apps are also excellent for backing up and remote entry. The only thing I would like to see eventually would be using iCloud for backing up and syncing. But this is one of my go to apps that I really enjoy using, so a big thanks to the developers.

Does all I need very well!


This app is so logical and simple to use that I am sure it has made my job 100 times easier. It does just about everything I need.
The item lookup tools are very useful especially when trying to find current values for items.
Sure, there are a few minor niggles but what app doesn’t have those?
The folks at Binary Formations always listen to you when you make suggestions for improvements.
