Welcome to MovieScanner - the ultimate iOS Movie inventory app!

Have you been collecting DVD's, Blu-rays, PS3/Xbox/Wii games and video tapes and always wanted to have a current catalog of what you own? Until now, this was a cumbersome job involving a PC, some kind of database program and LOTS of time... but not anymore!

MovieScanner lets you build a compehensive list of your movies in an automated and convenient way - without typing! And you can take it on the road, too!

You simply scan the bar codes on the back of your DVD, Blu-Ray or even your old VHS cases. On devices without camera, simply type in the codes and get the same amazing result!

Movie data is automatically pulled from the internet using our own web service that is constantly being updated to guarantee the best possible hit rate. As data gets stored on your iPhone for offline reference, each movie shows up in the list with it's title, genre and a cover image. A powerful search option lets you find any movie in just seconds.

In details view, you can see a short description of the movie, the genre, and in many cases a direct link to the movie trailer! What's more, you can simply add a personal note and choose from 4 user-defined flags that let you mark any movie as especially cool, given to someone, on your wishlist etc.

With the new bluetooth multi-user option, you can even share your movie list with other MovieScanner users (not on 1st generation devices) - or eMail the list as a CSV or XML file.

WAS a great app

I've been using this app for many years, and I have almost 700 movies catalogued in it. Lately, however, it's crashing every time I try to use it, won't allow me to edit entries, scanning barcode doesn't work at all anymore, and I can't add photos of the movie cover to the entry or even take my own photo. I put in HOURS to make this my complete movie inventory, and now I find it almost unusable. Developers, PLEASE get it back to the awesome app it was when I first downloaded it!

Back from the dead?


I had long ago given this app up as it hasn’t seen development in YEARS, but suddenly today I see an update! Hooray! The release noted even called out a big being fixed that was really bothering me.

However, sadly, the image picker still isn’t working on the American Gods Blu-ray (oddly, it seems to be working on some others).

Also, the ability to tag movies with “borrowing” and other labels is now broken (before, it would pretend to let you pick a tag from the list, but would only ever apply the first tag).

I love all the features this app has and I hope that today’s update means they plan to keep developing it and fixing the bugs.



Update: camera works much better in bright light.

Trying to get the scanner to work takes twice as much time as just typing in the barcode. On my iPhone 6s, the image is always focused on infinity. It would be nice if it defaulted to one foot instead. Hitting the info button in scanner mode opens a blank page.
