Needs more work v1.14
I think this app has great potential. There are some needed features, my main gripe is that I can't see what type of media it is from the main list. I hate having to open the item to see what it is. I need to be able to see at a glance what the media is from the list. When I'm in a store and want to know if I have a movie or I maybe want it on Blue-Ray now becasue I have it on VHS, I don't want to have to open the item to see it. The genre is another thing, it would be nice if it self populated or at least had a list to choose from. I don't like having to look that info up. The app also tends to lock up and quit working in this version. It will sometimes just shut down for no reason and then take along time to start back up. I do like most of the current features, but it needs a lot of polish. Add these features and it would get 4 or 5 stars.

Didn't work
I was all for an app to keep my movie collection on my phone, but after spending over an hour on my computer downloading software and trying to import my collection, I gave up. Not user friendly. Now, I'm out a few dollars and at square one.

Exactly what I needed
I currently have 309 movies entered in this app and started the input effort in the previous version and ended with the new version. I liked the older version fine but the new version is fantastic. Many things have been tweaked to allow for a more streamlined data entry process that saves quite a bit of time. I consider the scan feature invaluable but was disappointed that it was an add-on to the initial purchase. The backup and email features are wonderful; however, I have never had to use the restore option. App has never crashed on me, erased data or behaved badly. I rarely go for paid applications, but I would recommend this one to even the most thrifty users.

Good start to an awesome app...
This app is pretty cool with the UPC and Title search options. The ability to use coverflow was an excellent idea, and being able to seperate movies by "own" and "want" was exactly what I was looking for. It really has potential, but there are some really annoying details that lead me to delete it from my iPhone. The fact that you have to pay an extra $.99 to use the UPC picture look-up was a let down. The kicker was the fact that when you look up a movie to add to your collection it does not bring genre data with it. I ended up looking the genres up on imDb. Then I noticed it can't handle multiple genres. After getting five movies in, I decided to give up.

Love it, but...
I was able to add about 98% of my movies. It didn't contain the information for the movies: 21, No Reservations, Mirrors, The Messengers, and the American version of Shutter. However, I was delightfully surprised when the data for even low budget movies came up. You can add a movie by title or code.

Not horrible
The app requires a UPC number to save your movies to your list. What a pain! Developer - please change the app to allow us to search and add movies to our lists by name, without requiring a UPC number. I have many movies without UPC's as we send in our proof of purchases. Also doesn't allow me to list my blu-Ray movies. I know you can fix this :) More stars would be given for updated search features.
