What's New in Version 3.5.0

• The new Home Inventory Inbox makes maintaining your inventory a snap. Use the free print plugin (download instructions are in the app) to add digital receipts to the Inbox as you make your purchases without having to open Home Inventory. When you're ready to add your purchases to your inventory, the Inbox's streamlined interface makes it easy to quickly add new items associated with the receipts in your inbox all from within a single view. Tutorial video available at

• A badge next to the Inbox button tells you how many receipts are waiting in your Inbox.

• In addition to creating new items from receipts in the Inbox, you can also add a receipt from the Inbox to an existing item through the Item view Receipts section.

• Add file attachments from the Inbox to existing items through the Item View Files section.

• You can also drag and drop files straight into the Inbox view without going through the print plugin.

• Support for the new Photo Entry mode in Home Inventory Remote Entry for quickly entering items with just a photo and a name in rapid succession. Tutorial video at

• You can now add new categories, collections, conditions, and locations straight from the add/edit item panel.

Customer Reviews

Support is excellent!

Attesting to Excellent support— should you actually need it. I had set up this app several years ago, just to be responsible about organizing my assets, and to help with remembering maintenance/replacement dates. And then with the bad New England 2015 winter damage, it really came to my rescue for providing ready backup to support claims to my insurance company. It is such a good feeling to know everything is in one place and easily maintained. However, the real test of any essential app is the level of support when you most need it. I am glad to report that support here is EXCELLENT. Beyond my expectations. Last Thursday I opened my file to find it lost. Took me till Friday late afternoon I get up energy to finally fill out that dreaded form explaining my problem, expecting --as experience with so many other software companies--at least a week of robo replies before getting a real person. However I was so wrong!. That evening I received a personal response from the owner, who actually had read my details. Within a couple more email exchanges, with him giving me clear instructions on tests, he had my solution and it was all recovered. Record time. I am so glad I chose this app, this company. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Home Inventory 3.5.0

I’ve had this wonderful app for about a year and a half, and find that it’s one of the best I have - if not *the* best. And while the app is terrific, the online support is even better. I’ve had to contact them twice, with a problem that was caused by a computer issue unrelated to the app itself. Both times, the response was quick, helpful and friendly (directly from one of the two owners of the company - a husband/wife team)… and the easy solution corrected the situation.
If you value your home and possessions, and love the feeling of having everything cleanly organized, please get this app.

Saved my bacon!

This application was indispensible in helping me file an insurance claim after a significant water damage event at my house. I would never have been able to create a report of the lost items so quickly. I went through my inventory, added a tag to each lost item, and generated a comprehensive report based on that tag. It couldn’t have been easier. The new Inbox feature is great. I also love the Remote Entry feature.
