  • Not happy

    I have purchased this app, and found it severely wanting. Anytime I try to scan the comics that have a bar code with the barcode reader it just tells me the barcode is invalid, I then try to put the barcode in manually and it still tells me it's invalid. This forces me to have to do a database search and, if it finds nothing, which it has done for every book I have looked up, I have to manually fill out the data for everything on the book myself. This is a very tedious and annoying process. Not happy at all.
  • The biggest let down from an otherwise great collection of apps

    I really enjoy the other apps from the developer namely the Movie and Video Games collector apps. I had high hope for this app, unfortunately it does not live up to that. The app runs slow and does not sort as well as I would hope for a serious collector. Every issue has to be entered in separately, so each individual issue has is keep without an issue hierarchy, there is also value denomination. For long issue runs namely Spider-man it becomes a nightmare and the exact opposite of an organized collection. Worst yet you can't refund through iOS app purchases. $5.99 waste.
  • So close to being great!

    My only issue is that if you have issues 1-4 and issue 6, and later add issue 5 to your collection, it is sequenced in the order you added them and you can manually rearrange them. F only I could select and drag issue five to fit in its proper spot, I would love this app.
  • Ok I guess

    It's not quick to use. I always have to find my own covers for new issues. Search for CBI - Comic Book Inventory, it's a better app for storing your titles
  • I WANT A REFUND

    This is easily the worst app I have ever used! Everything it says it does in the description works; but in the worst way possible. You actually spend most of your time adding your own photos and information for your comics because they don't actually have them. I Honestly feel like Apple needs to look at how bad and unprofessional this app is and pull it from the store. It would actually be a better use of your time if you just catalogued your comics on a piece of paper; It would also be cheaper.
  • Unusable

    It takes the program far too long to OCR the barcode. It takes the program far too long to locate matches to the barcode, which may be many because these are not UPC codes. However it takes so long for the interface to respond in so many cases that the entire instrument locks up. There is no way that this app is ready for prime time, I would not wish it upon my worst enemy to have to use this app to catalog my comic book collection. A stabilizing release is needed ASAP.
  • Wish I could get a refund

    Horrible app when you scan a comic you have to look through all of them just to try to find the one you are entering.
  • Pretty Good App

    This is a pretty decent app for organizing and documenting your comic book collection. It does take a while to add your collection but once you do you will be happy. I wish that there was a better way to input more than one book at a time. Also, if you have multiple copies of a book there is no way to detail the personal information for each copy. One copy may be near mint but the other is only very good as an example. Still, this is a good app for its intended use. The developer does make updates to fix issues and add enhancements.
  • No support

    I purchased this app two weeks ago and I still haven't been able to use it. They have a "forgot password" link but they never respond to it. They don't appear to have any support at all. Not from the application or their web site. No way to call or send an e-mail. I had also purchased their movie collection app and now I can't get into it either. Very frustrating.
  • Exactly what I was looking for but...

    Needs serious work on organization, should be able to organize by series and then number and the duplicate titles should be removed from the selection process. Other than that its a great idea!
