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.

Valuable App

Home Inventory 3.6 is a great app for organizing and keeping track of the items in the home. The overall design of the app is excellent and using the app is very intuitive. I used to itemize my inventory on a spreadsheet and Home Inventory is a tremendous upgrade and worth the money. Home Inventory allows you to track as much information as you care to about individual items and store info on the purchases. The latest version allows tracking and storage of general information and files regarding the home which is a great update feature. Home Inventory is also available as a mobile app so your inventory and item records are always with you and in sync with desktop with the backup process. Numberous reports are available to print home inventory records. Valuable record keeping system in the event you need to provide a listing of the items and their valiue on an insurance claim.

Great application

I just bought this application a few days ago. Home inventory is something we’ve been “meaning” to do for a long time. While not exactly painless this application takes a lot of the pain out of the process. It’s very intuitive, very quick, pretty flexible and kind of fun. My only real complaint is that it insists on filling in a full date under “purchase date”, so if I want to simply specify a year it defaults to the current calendar date with the year I entered. Somewhat of a pain, but the rest of the application makes up for it. What I like best is the photo editing tools. I can take a picture, drag it into the application and with a quick couple of clicks it’s cropped perfectly. Nice piece of work!

New version (3.6) is Awesome!!! Love the new Heir tracking feature

I love the new version's (3.6) ability to keep track and manage heirs. I preveously had added a custom field for “Heir” and created my own reports for that purpose, but now it’s built right into the application! Love it! I’ve had this software for over 4 years now and have enjoyed bug-free, rock solid performance as well as great support, not to mention FREE updates that ALWAYS contain new inovative features that I find myself using. Recommend this software to anyone needing a solid performing and intuitive home inventory system.
