Customer Reviews

Great App!


I’ve had both the mobile and Mac versions of this app for several years. When I retired in 2013, I decided my first project would be to document all our stuff, room by room. I was worried that our homeowner’s insurance was under-estimating our valuable possessions. I took pictures of everything (furniture, appliances, electronics, etc) with my iPhone, and uploaded them, along with any receipts, creating a database so detailed that our insurance company was very impressed. Edits are also a breeze. It’s comforting to know that we have this all documented and on file with our agent. I recently had a question about the app, and emailed customer service. I received an answer the same day. It’s hard to find such prompt service anymore. Kudos!

It does not get any better than this!


Functionality is great
Integration with latest Mac-features
Very intuitive and easy to use
Friendly and helpful software support

Great update


I’ve been using HomeInventory for several years now, but the new Remote Entry has made the addition of photos an easy matter. I particularly like being able to add new entries from the App itself. One note: I originally had issues with my iPhone losing the network connection when making entries, but after finding my iPad had no problems using my network, I “restored” my iPhone thru iTunes, hoping the problem was with my phone. Evidently that was it, as that fixed the issue and it's working flawlessly!
