Tutorial Description

Home Inventory is an easy to use application that allows you to rapidly build a catalogue of all your possessions or keep track of your various collections of "stuff".

In conjunction with two free iOS helper apps, Home Inventory takes the friction out of building a personal database of all your belongings, to help you stay organised and give you peace of mind! Highly rated on the Mac App store, Home Inventory has previously been a Mac App Store Editors' Choice and a Mac App Store Best of 2013 pick.

In this week's show, guest ScreenCaster Allison Sheridan takes us on a tour of Home Inventory for Mac, demonstrating adding items, receipts and warranty information to the database. With full support for multiple images and other file types, it's simple to build a comprehensive database for insurance purposes or just to get organised. Home Inventory also includes standard reports with the capablility of creating and customising your own reports, as well as exporting and importing your data for use in other applications.

Home Inventory has a wealth of built in tools to help you organise your possessions into "collections" within the database, or create customised views using categories.

There are also two iOS helper apps available for free that fully integrate with Home Inventory - one to help you capture items and images using your iPhone or iPad, and one to allow you to backup your inventory to your iOS device and view it on the go. Both of these free apps are covered by Allison on this week's iOS show.
