  • Great design, but there are issues...

    By LordMMaximus
    Pros: Overall, the design of the app is excellent. It is a great way to keep up the value of your collection. I like how you can keep track of boxes and manuals as well. Cons: The pie chart shows the percentages of the two largest collections and then has a third section for all other systems. I’d like to see a detailed breakdown. If you add games that are not listed in a system, the values never come up. No home brew game support. This app is great for Nintendo fans, but retro gaming actually starts ten years earlier. Other than the Atari 2600, there is no support for any other systems from the late 70s/early 80s. Despite promises over the past couple of years to add them in, we’re still waiting for this to happen.

    Early adopter. I have bought 8 platforms now and it's only gotten better with updates.
  • Worth every penny!

    By far, the BEST collecting app out there. The user interface, filters, and overall look are all top tier. Backs up your data to if you make a free account, which is huge if anything happens to the app. I’ve used several before that have been removed from the App Store and once they’re gone they’re gone! Cataloging can be tedious, and it’s rough to have to redo it all! My favorite feature is the ability to filter out the games you already have for a system, so you’re left with what you still need for a complete library. Customer support is great as well. I had an issue getting my account to sync to my new device and they were fast to respond, and fixed the issue even though it was my own fault! Keep up the great work!
  • Excellent for a Collector

    By panter2222
    I love this app! Bought each console collection prior to them making it a single app. Everything easily transferred to the new platform. With a collection around 1700+ games on available on the consoles shown (I have more games for other consoles not available), this makes sorting and keeping track of what I already have super easy. With cart/disk, manual, and case options I know at a glance what I have. I do find the pricing finicky, but I work the numbers through multiple sources anyways. I’ve emailed them with a few issues and missing games and they’ve always been very responsive. This is my first app review and have to give the original creator credit here.
  • Great Interface

    By angrychkn
    There are a few quirks, and it only includes North American titles. I have a massive amount of Japanese titles and a few European ones-- would be nice to include these. ** Configuring a new item in the list works, and it will update to the web site and maintain it in the overview, but when you return to that item in your collection, the word "Configure..." is present and not selected. ** Japanese games would make this awesome and I'd be willing to pay for an update.
