I use Qollector on the iPad to track all my rental properties. I customized my layouts so I can sort on many different requirements. It’s also easy share directly with prospective renters for easy web access. I can also keep my warranties, contracts and other documents with each property. Check it out:

I've been using Home Inventory fora few years now, and with the addition of the Photo Remote, it's amazing how much stuff I've been able to add quickly! Granted, a lot of things that we no longer have boxes (or barcodes) for take manual entry & loading pictures, it's still great to have in case of emergency.

We collect a lot of outsider art, and I've gotten used to taking pics & scanning receipts as soon as we get something new, since that's the kind of property that would be impossible to prove worth to an insurance company without documentation.

I didn't realize I could sync the database to my Dropbox too, or the creation of the Home Inventory Mobile Backup. That's great! These guys really respond to their user base, can't recommend their software enough!

I have been searching for an app like this for awhile that would simplify home inventory. However I go to buy it and I find out it's in the US App store only. Too bad I would have loved to have been able to buy/use this app :(

@Jesterace: We have had a couple of people write us about this. Home Inventory is available in all countries the Mac App Store operates. There seems to be a problem with the posted link. It also produces an error in the US region. The correct link is on our website (I tried to post it here, but it keeps triggering the spam filter for the post).

You can also find it in your country's store by launching the Mac App Store and typing Home Inventory in the search box.

Hello! I'm the developer of Home Inventory. Thanks very much to Mac|Life and Zack Stern for a very fair review.

I wanted to let everyone know that we've released an update to Home Inventory since this review was conducted. Among the new features, there are a few that directly address some of the very valid criticisms in this review:

1) We launched a second free mobile companion app, Home Inventory Mobile Backup, along with the release of Home Inventory 2.5. This lets you backup your inventory to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. You can also view your inventory using the app and do things like email receipts and photos.

2) Our new Backup Now feature lets you easily backup your inventory to locally attached storage or to a sync folder, such as Dropbox or SugarSync.

3) The Home Inventory Photo Remote app has been updated to the display the number of photos associated with each item when used with the latest version of Home Inventory (version 2.5), so you know which items have photos and which do not.
