Organize Your Movie Catalog

Surprisingly, there are actually quite a lot of apps in the movie catalog category. Many of them share the same sort of features, but MovieBuddy is definitely one of the better ones you’ll find in the App Store.

This app allows you to organize by all the major categories of movies, and it’s got a great user interface that makes it easy to sort and filter your movies however you like. It also has a few extra features that help it to stand out from the crowd, such as bar code scanning.

Although this app is extremely easy to use, it was still quite surprising to find that it didn’t include any sort of instructions. It’s not a hard app to figure out, but it has a fair number of different features that should be explained in a little bit of depth. The other drawback, at least in the free version, is that you’re catalog is limited to 50 movies.

If you want to upgrade to the full version and be able to catalog as many movies as you like, you can do so with and in-app purchase at a cost of $4.99. This app will require 9 MB of available space on your iOS device.

The Essentials

The main screen of MovieBuddy is divided into several different categories. You have the option of searching your movies in a complete list, you can search by genres, search for a movie that’s part of a series, or you can just search for an individual movie by name.

If you loan a movie out to a friend or family member you can record that inside the app so that you never lose track of where it’s gone, which can save you from a lot of misunderstandings.

Perhaps the coolest part of this app is the different option you have for adding a movie to your catalog. You can add a movie manually if you like, entering all the relevant information yourself but that’s not the only way to do it. You can search existing online movie databases and add your movie that way, or you can take the easy route and simply scan a movies barcode. This is a great feature that fills in all the movie information for you.

You can even export all or selected portions of your Movie manager library in standard file formats for colleagues and friends to view on their computer or any other device. Seamlessly sync your movie list organizer library across all your devices using iCloud or Dropbox.
