What a great idea for an app! How many times have you been in a store, and can't remember if you HAVE that particular movie ?! The ability to have that info at your fingertips would be cool. This app has the POTENTIAL to be outstanding. I love the scanning ability (for an additional 99c, what the heck...) Be forewarned however... you've gotta hold that camera VERY steady, and be patient... but it did work most of the time. For movies where the UPC was particularly small, it was easy enough to type in name of the movie and get the same info. I have input about 80 movies so far and have found the following: Not all movies will be found on their database. Out of my 80, I only had 4 that didn't input well. Case in point: Superman, The Movie. As soon as I select it, the app crashes. The Dirty Dozen was problematic as well. These are pretty big movies, so I was surprised by the problem. (Not like I was looking for a foreign film from the 60's...) The fact that you can email yourself a copy of your database as a .csv file is pretty cool too. That would make it easy to import into a database program like Filemaker if you were so inclined. (I'm not). Would be nice if you could select a "default" setting while entering data. For example, "own or want". Would also be cool if the "genre" was automatically entered when you enter a movie. Perhaps a future version? For now, I don't bother with imdb, just typed in a few of my own. (comedy, action, drama, bond, etc.) Panorama view of blueray cases is cool, but acts a little "choppy" on my iPhone. (Not a 3GS phone, but only 1 1/2 yrs old). Sometimes the app will crash when I'm in this mode. My 3-star rating seems overly generous given the problems that I've outlined above. However, like any app... I'm hopeful that we'll all see improvements in the near future. With a little fine tuning, it could end up being a 5-star app in no time!

Worst App in App Store...
First, it keeps CRASHING...I searched for 26 movies so far, popular titles, and over half is not here...very small Data Base...wasn't worth the couple of dollars I spent!! Too bad I can't have my money back...please fix this...and developers, we would all appreciate it if you not rate yourself a FIVE and then give yourself a Great Review so suckers like myself won't buy into junk...

App okay. Need more refinement
Doesn't orientate for iPad well yet. We need an iPad fix. This is a good application...

Great app
This app gets better and better. I've got over 1500 movies logged and love how easy this app is to use and keep track of my movies

This app worked great..at first
This app was amazing when I first got it. I hav an enormous collection and had put 800+ movies into the database, but as the updates kept coming, the app worked less and less. After the first update, it would take forever for my database to load. Yet after the second update, my database won't load at all! This app jus stopped working for me wen it was supposed to work better. Very frusterating and disappointing. Forget about my $2, I want my wasted time back.
