A Mac App Store Editor’s Choice, Home Inventory has been helping people organize and store information about their home and its contents for over 11 years.

Called "Quick and easy to use" by the New York Times, Home Inventory is the ultimate tool for cataloging information about your home & belongings for insurance, home management, and estate planning purposes.

Home Inventory helps you organize the receipts, warranty information, product manuals, maintenance schedules, repair and improvement notes, and other important information about your home and its contents. With Home Inventory, all of this information is in one place, and easy to find.

Many do not realize they are underinsured until disaster strikes and they need to file a claim. Home Inventory can deal with the complex coverage rules and limits found in most insurance policies and its coverage analysis tools let you know exactly where you are under and over-insured.

Best of all, Home Inventory is completely private. Your inventory is stored on your Mac not on some company’s server, where it could be hacked or sold to other parties. And should something happen to your Mac, Home Inventory’s robust backup features can backup your data to your iPhone or iPad and elsewhere. You can also back it up in a cloud synced folder on your Mac such as Dropbox or iCloud Drive. You are always in control of how and where your inventory information is kept.

The only app that has ever made the process of making a home inventory seem feasible! - I've been using Home Inventory since 2009 and since the addition of the iOS Photo Remote app, it has become a very powerful and easy to use tool to keep track of the stuff that we purchase and things that we already own. I make sure to scan each new purchase before getting rid of the box, snap a few pictures, enter the serial number, choose category/location and we're good to go. Being able to attach scanned receipts and warranty info is very useful, and the reports that are generated are very comprehensive and easy to read. The new interface in version 3 is very nice. The developer has helped me with issues and gotten back to me via email extremely quickly, and is always pleasant and ever eager to implement fixes and listen to suggestions. One of my most highly recommended apps, both for the quality of the app itself and for my customer service experience.

Review by McQuady

Misleading ease of use - I've had this product over a month and havent even entered one item yet. Why would you advertise a compatibility with iphone/ipad that initially is only for backing up to look at items on the go? Then you add a photo remote to make adding items easier, but you physically need to have the connection going with the computer over wifi while entering. I purchased this software to speficially help my parents inventory their home, and link it to my MacAir, only to find out I need to be physically present with my laptop during the process. This is extremely time consuming and not easy to use, which is the exact opposite reason I purchased this product.

Makes inventory management fun... - My personal experience with this software is great. I’ve set my backup directory to iCloud and have it make a backup after each use. With the remote software for iOS, it’s been great.
