April 7, 2021: Version 1.1.8 is out!

  • The barcode scanner now stores retrieved results in a local database for fast repeat recognition of those items. If an item is not found, entering a name for it will associate the item with the scanned barcode in the local database. Lastly, the local barcode database is included with the inventory data during sync operations, so all devices logged into that sync account will be able to quickly resolve those barcodes.

  • Added automated inventory backup and data synchronization across multiple devices
  • Added a simple Import option from the Inventory tab for backup and CSV files
  • Added a link to the Category Editor from the Inventory tab menu
  • Added a link to the Cache Editor from the Caches tab menu
  • Fixed a bug in the Category Editor that sometimes caused a crash when moving sub-categories
  • Added an option to upgrade to Unlimited from the Home page menu
  • UI polishing and improvements

January 16, 2021: Development update

We’re working on data sync across multiple devices, with backups to the cloud. We’re taking care to get it right and robust, but also cost efficient, ie, cheap. We’re evaluating swapping out our current push notifications service for one that will also allow for notifying the app when another user has updated a shared inventory, so we can sync more intelligently.

We’ll most likely do a beta test of the new data sync functionality to better work out any kinks before launching it for everyone. Stay tuned if you’d like to be a part of that.

The first iteration of data sync will be unencrypted. Once we release the first iteration, we’ll do a round of smaller improvements from our backlog, then work on encrypted data sync.

November 28, 2020: Added support article for barcode scanning

October 31, 2020: Version 1.0.20 is out!

  • Fixed Category editor bug that could cause the app to crash
