Want to catalog my DVD collection and my Game collection and was wondering what are the best apps out there for the iPhone?

Hopefully there is something out there that you can add and edit directly from the iPhone. As opposed to, doing it all on a PC/Mac and importing it into an app.

Here's another suggestion

I have almost 3200 DVDs. I love Delicious Library 2. It does books, games, CDs and anything you want. It will even read the barcode on the item using the iSight and look up the item on Amazon. It is surely worth a look.

3200 is a good size collection. I have a whole room in my place just dedicated to movies and games. My collection is somewhere around 15,000 films between DVD, Blu-Ray & HD-DVD. I am a die hard film buff.

And here I thought my 300 DVD's was a bit excessive.

I use DVDPedia for my 500 films and can recommend it. It uses an iTunes like interface, connects with IMDB, Amazon, and a number of other sources to pull its information and it syncs with the iPhone Pocketpedia 2 app.

Other reasons why I really like this programme:
-it let's me export to HTML files, so that my friends can view my library on the internet and let me know what movies they want to borrow.
-I lets you link your films to digital files and integrates with Front Row (but using their own full screen interface with VLC might be better, as it supports more formats).

They also have other cataloguing programmes for games, books, and cds, but I haven't tried them...

I realise this is my first post, but I am not advertising for Bruji here :). Was just researching information on Blu Ray on Macs and came across this. Been idling on mac rumors for a few years...

Seems like most of these suggestions are not for the iPhone. I have tried iCollect Movies, and it works good. I was looking at Movies by Netwalk, it looks real nice but gets poor reviews. It would be nice to get the functionality of iCollect Movies, with the interface/looks of Movies.

I use handbase by ddhsoftware. There is a DVD catalog applet that is free on their website. You can customize it to fit your needs. Plus, you will get an app that you can use a lot more than just as a DVD catalog. I am sure it is something like Bento. It has a desktop app that you can sync via wifi as well.

I have always wanted Delicious Library. $40 seems like a lot though... it looks like an amazing application. Just $40 seems like a lot for cataloging.

Clz...

I have been using Clz Movies and Music for years. They also offer Books, Games and more. The app has just been recently put back on the app store because Amazon is pulling all of its services to third party developers. Clz now has its own internal database and is no longer Amazon reliant due Amazon's selfishness and greed.

The customer support is great with these guys and the sync between computer and iPhone is flawless. They update frequently making things better. You are also able to use a scanner to get all of your CD's and DVD's into your library quickly and efficiently.

Hope this helps...Good Luck

Wow.

Let's do some math.

Assume that your average movie is 105 minutes long (1 hour 45 minutes)

15,000 movies @ 105 minutes is 1,575,000 minutes

1,575,000 minutes equates to 26,250 hours (or 1,093 days or just short of 3 years)

Wow.

I know it is a lot of movies, but I have been collecting since day one when DVD's were introduced.

With CLZ can you add your own fields or is it a set template?

For the iphone it is a one way app...no customization. For the desk top software, it is customizable and you can enter tons of data and records. You can add your own cover info. Etc.

Sorry it took so long to answer, never got the email update in my mail box.

The above code is used...THANK YOU!!!

I will make a comparison to CLZ movies and post the results. Looking at the iTunes details, it is already offering more then the CLZ iPhone app but no desktop partner. I will definetly be seeing which one fulfills my needs the most.

I do have a question, CLZMovie Collector saves the backups in a .mvc file format. Would your app be able to import that onto the iPhone through the Backup/Recovery system and if not, what file format do you use for backup so I can see if I can use what I already have...Thank You

We just backup to a text file which you can modify. We don't yet import from other apps.

We will be releasing a website soon that will work hand-in-hand with the iPhone apps. We won't be making a desktop app. The advantage of a website is that you can access it from anywhere and get the same functionality that the desktop app would provide.

Ethan,

I dowloaded your app... Thank you for letting us try it out. I have been messing around with it and I do like the functionality. I do howver wish that there was a way to just enter a title, do a search and then have it populate the fields. Right now it seems that barcode/UPC is the only way to enter titles for auto populate.
