Recollector is a general-purpose collection management tool, and works well with data about collections of any kind (art, coins, books, maps, toys, etc.).
NOTE: The Recollector App is NOT a stand-alone program for cataloging and managing a collection. The cataloging/managing tool is Recollector, which runs on MS/Windows and Mac OS X. The Recollector App is for users of that program who also want the ability to take their collection (text and images) with them on an Android mobile device. For information about the main program, Recollector, please go to www.CollectingCatalog.com.
Recollector on the PC and Mac includes an “export for Recollector App” facility that prepares collection database for download to your Android smartphone or tablet. The Recollector App is a full-function viewer for all of your collection data. The viewing features available in the PC and Mac versions of Recollector (images, formatted text, hyperlinks, etc.) are also available in the Recollector App.
The Recollector App is a read-only viewer for your collection data. Updates and editing of your collection data are done on your PC or Mac (with the PC or Mac versions of Recollector). You can re-export your updated collection database at any time, to bring your Recollector App version of your collection data up-to-date with the PC or Mac version.
Like Recollector on the PC and Mac,the Recollector App supports having multiple collection databases. If you have more than one collection, you can easily switch from viewing one collection to viewing a different one.
Recollector user reviews :
So far so good. Trying this app with the demo of the desktop version. Really like it so far. Pros: * practically no learning curve * include multiple image per record * fully customisable collection fields * can have multiple collections * access using desktop or mobile app * mobile access – seamless if set up correctly, but without images * import and export to excel/csv * more options than i can explore right now Cons: * need to ‘export’ collections to access via mobile with images * mobile app connected with dropbox * URL entry if fiddly * a little confused with the number of places to change order of fields – can never remember which ones apply where.
I’ve tried a number of apps like this. Only one I’ve found that works across platforms, isn’t clonky, offers a ton of features and the dev responds quickly to support requests. Worth the premium pay features on the full desktop client too.
Excellent. Saves carrying around paper records of your collections. Excellent support from developer. Highly recommended.
A fantastic companion app to the Recollector program. Love always having a copy of my collection with me for reference and showing to fellow collectors.
Great companion app to the main pc program that I use to organize my collection of vintage cameras. Allows me to view my collection on my phone or tablet, which is very helpful when I’m out looking to add to my collection.
The app works in conjunction with the excellent Recollector database software for the PC/Mac. It gives collectors the ability to view full details of their collection in a conveniently searchable and navigable format on their phone or tablet. No longer will it be necessary to take bulky notebooks or scruffy lists along to the collectors’ fairs to check what you have against what you are considering buying. A visit to the publisher’s website for further details of both database and app is highly recommended.
Using Recollector for several years I have been using the core program for my map collection on my PC for several years, and was delighted to see this add-on so I can carry my information on my iPhone and Android Nexus 7 complete with images. Not sure that the other reviewer was thinking but this IS ONLY A READER. The author states that VERY clearly in this description. The frequently updated database program itself resides on my PC. I take the updated database data on my devices so when I go to an auction or store, I can see what I already own. Considering the cost/benefit ratio for me of the core program and this free viewer, I give it a 5.
