How many times have you lost an item in the house somewhere, during a move, while packing, or any other time? The Sortly inventory app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is a productivity tool that can be used to keep you organized.
This home inventory app was formerly known as My Things - Where Are They and is dedicated to helping you with moving, inventory, finding your items, and organizing your stuff.
The app for sorting your items has so many practical purposes that the more you use it the more you’ll find additional uses for it. Continue reading our review to see if this is one of the best home inventory apps for your needs.
It’s great for storing information for insurance purposes of your belongings, for keeping a collection organized, for having a handy list of all the clothing items you own so while you’re out shopping you know whether or not you need a particular piece, and so many other uses.
What makes this app all the more useful is that you are able to put together a visual inventory with photos. You can add notes, tags, and even locations to your items.
The app is free to download and use but does have a number of in-app purchases that range in price from $0.99 to $39.99 depending on what features you want. The app currently has four out of five stars from users and requires iOS 7 to use.
Ways to Help You With Productivity
There are all kinds of ways in which this app makes productivity smoother and easier. First off there is the fact that you are creating a visual inventory, which tends to be a whole lot more useful than a written inventory.
This also helps show the physical state of an item in case you want to compare the current state of it at any time.
Additional features include such things as being able to backup, export, and restore your data. This means you'll never have to worry about losing your important information. Keep in mind if you want to store your information to the Sortly Cloud you'll need to pay for this feature.
You can add multiple photos (up to eight) for each item, highlight items, and even use arrows. As mentioned you can also go ahead and add notes and searchable tags.
