This program gives you a good overview of your model train collection. You can store all values (gauge, class…) of your models in xMoVe. But not only the information of the model can be stored. Also the dates of the original can be administered.
Normally only the actual information will be shown. With this program, you see also the history. For the model, this means that you can enter all changes (repair, modifications…). And for the original, the whole life-cycle can be shown.
This program is designed for the desktop computer. But with iMoVe you get a version for the iPhone and iPad, too. With the mobile app, you can manage the values on the road. And when you are at home, you are able to enter values very easy with your desktop computer. With the integrated synchronization, you are able to keep both systems always up to date.
In detail there are the following features:
- Several track gauges can be used.
- Up to four pictures can be stored for each model.
- The history (maintenance, repair, retrofit...) of each model is available.
- All spare parts are stored.
- Information about the original is recordable.
- The life cycle of the original is available.
- A graphical report of the entered values
- Synchronization between mobile app and desktop program.
When starting the first time only some example values are available. You are able to add or change these for your collection.
This version provides an additional synchronization option with iMoVe. You can now also create a synchronization file and send it to the mobile device by mail, for example. This file can then be read by iMoVe. In some cases this is faster than the already existing synchronisation via WLAN. Of course, the other opposite way is also possible.
In addition, some minor bugs have been fixed and the operation was improved.
Ratings and Reviews
Neat program with the ability to store alot of information. It allows for you to modify the way you want the info displayed and some of the parameters to suite your needs. But it does require a quick read of the help files if you are not familiar with the format. I have not used all of the features yet but so far it is the best program I have found for my needs. I believe that it could be more user friendly as far as adjusting to your specific needs and the main list screen could be made more attractive but overall I like the program.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
