A detailed home or office inventory is the best way to get what’s coming to you. Creating that inventory list is a tedious, time consuming exercise. Unless you have a Mac.
Your Stuff Goes Into MyStuff
There’s really nothing new to report about home or office inventory apps. No matter how you slice and dice it takes time and effort to get the details in a list.
MyStuff Pro is one of a few Mac inventory apps, but this one has a few options to take some of the pain out of the inventory gathering process.
When it comes to inventory keeping you want the app to do most of the work. MyStuff Pro lets you create categories, find product details on the web, capture important details such as model numbers, retail price, warranty and serial number information, as well as purchase date and method.
Photos? Did I mention photos. Use your Mac’s iSight camera to scan barcodes, capture photos of inventory, or grab items from the web and insert into the list.
MyStuff Pro is smart enough to display a list of products with expired warranties, itemize all your stuff in each category, and give you more places to put product information.
MyStuff Pro may be the most comprehensive of Mac inventory management apps for home or office.
Look at all the detail that can be captured for your automobile.
The web groups section of MyStuff Pro is a good place to start capturing your inventory items.
It’s also a good place to shop online.
MyStuff Pro uses the barcode scanner to gather product details over the internet. Other items can be found using the built-in browser and Web Groups.
There’s room for manufacturer information, vendor details, and tags to make searching for items much easier.
Of course, you can add custom fields, and it features multiple currency support so the total value of items will make your insurance agent cringe when you walk in the door.
MyStuff Pro even does labels for each item so you can put your OCD to good use and alphabetize canned goods or the spice rack.
Wander around the house and use your iPhone to take photos of your belongings, then drag the photos from iPhoto into MyStuff. The only negative is that MyStuff Pro absolutely screams the need for an iPhone version.
