This App is the latest essential for the keen philatelist giving you a unique database for British stamps. You can record those you already own (mint or used) along with their cost and current estimated market value. You can enter a unique reference or catalogue number for each item. A summary page indicates how many stamps you have and their total cost and value. A handy link to the Internet allows you to search for those elusive stamps needed to complete your collection. All records have an accurate image for your reference.
The initial screen will show you a table containing thumbnail photos of stamps from the period indicated in the text to the right.
Tapping the disclosure chevron will take you to another table again with thumbnail photos of the stamps from the chosen period. It will also display your reference/catalogue number, the date of issue, and an indicator of whether you have the mint or used version of that particular stamp.

Very Good App
Very good app well thought out and easy to use, but a bit on the expensive side compaired to other apps, this may put other buyers off.
For the price I paid I would like to see it bought upto date on a regular basis please last stamps in the app are May 2011, it is now February 2012!!
This is not a bad app but I have a question what about the 2017 update or future releases it would be nice to have an update every year I hope the developers don't give up
This is the perfect app for collectors of UK Stamps. I have only recently started this fantastic hobby and have been waiting for an app like this. I would like to see in a possible update a field for notes and perhaps an area where you can store website addresses and dealers that you've dealt with. And possibly the facility to be able to take photos of own stamps.
Any chance of an update?
