Compartments is a fast, beautiful, easy-to-use app to organize your stuff and do a home inventory. Now enhanced for Yosemite.
Retina-ready, with over 100 beautiful icons to represent your rooms, collections and items, Compartments is more beautiful than ever.
It's great for hobbyists, collectors, and anyone wanting to do a home inventory.
Check out a few of the great things you can do with Compartments:
* Organize Information With Collections *
Match items by specific criteria, and create an auto-updating smart collection that collects all items matching that criteria (for example: all books, or all movies rated G, or all funny t-shirts).
* Track Details About Your Stuff *
Create Item Types for different items you collect, like Stamps, Books or Wine. Set the attributes you want to track (like tracking condition of stamps, authors of books, year of wines). You can even search for those attributes or create smart collections based on them.
* Search For Anything Quickly *
As you search, items automatically filter as you type, so you can find something quickly and learn details about it. Lost something? Search for it in Compartments to find where you left it.
What's New in Version 2.1.2
This is a minor bug fix release:
First, an issue that caused Compartments to lose track of what location you were working on when adding items is fixed. Now, after adding a new item, the current location will be remembered when you add another new item.
Second: images dragged in could result in slowing down Compartments over time in the previous version. To fix this if Compartments is sluggish, just edit and re-save the images you've already added. Images added from here on out will not have this problem.
I'm still hard at work on the iOS version, which will be a full featured app that syncs with the Mac app. Thanks for your patience.
Review update: I would recommend this app now
With the latest update 2.1.2, the developer fixed the issue with the sluggishness of the app. Seems like it had to do with the way the app was storing image files. After going in and edit each item in my lists (I opened the item listing, edited the images just by zooming in a little bit, and then saving the new zoomed in image.) After saving, all of my lists load much more quickly now. Thanks to the developer for listenting to feedback and updating their app. Only reason that’s keeping me from giivng a full 5 stars is the design. Wish it had a more sleek look. The still think the icons and overall look of the app seems outdated.
Below is my previous review:
My first experience with this product is with version 2.1.1. Running this on my Macbook Air 2011. For me, this program is feels pretty sluggish. When I changes views from one list to another, it takes SEVERAL seconds for the new list to load, even though I may only have only 5 items in the list. Feature-wise it has what I need and I find the product useful. The design could use a makeover. The icons look very outdated and boring, although I can live with it since the functionality is there. However, until the speed issue is fixed, I can’t really recommend this product.
Updated review - Slow Slow SLOW!!!
Updated Review - I have downgraded my rating to 2 stars as the speed issue has still not been dealt with. I see another review that indicates if I (why I should have to do this is beyond me!) go in and modify all the images I have posted with my entries the speed of the app will improve dramatically. Thats great if you don’t have a few hundred items already entered in the app. The speed of this app is a serious problem. If you are really going to use this app to catalog your belongings be prepared for the frustration that comes with it’s serious lack of speed.
I have been using this program for about a year trying to put together a complete home inventory. It works well but is slow to load and seems to get bogged down. If the speed increases I would give it a higher rating. Also would love to see some sort of barcode scanning ability added to simplify entering new items purchased. Just about everything comes with a barcode these days so why not utilize the technology.
Pretty easy to use, search function is useful. Wish you could put qty in as a field. There are some items that i have to put in more then once just to say there are two of them located in one room. These are items that do not have serial numbers on them but they are something I want to keep track to see if i need to get more or not (stock pile), and others is just duplicate furniture that is in the same room. But for what i need it for is why it got 4 out of five stars, the one last star is being able to hold qty of an item(s), everything else is pretty useful for some basic inventory for items of value.
