Connect Sync & Share

Today, we have great news for our loyal Collectorz.com customers.
So don’t skip this blog post, it’s too important to miss. Here we go:

In July 2009, we launched Connect, our fully online cataloging and sharing software for movies, books, music, comics and video games. During the past 3 years, we have been continuously improving Connect, adding more features, improving performance and polishing the user interface.

By now, more and more new customers are opting for just Connect, using only the online software to catalog their collections.
On top of that, a lot of users of the desktop editions for PC & Mac, have added a Connect subscription, to share their collection list with friends and family and to manage their collection data from other computers and from mobile devices (e.g. their iPad).

However, we are so proud of Connect, that we want even more desktop users to enjoy Connect.
We want more users to experience the usefulness of accessing their database from anywhere, from any device and the joys of sharing their collection data online.

So we are going to make a big change (starting next week):

  • We will launch a new Connect subscription type, called Connect Sync & Share.
    Sync & Share is a basic Connect edition, created for desktop users who just
    want to sync their collection online and share it with friends, but wish to
    keep using their desktop software to manage (add/edit) their database.
    In short, Sync & Share is Connect without the adding and editing features.

  • Sync & Share will be FREE for PRO users of the *latest* desktop edition.
    That’s right, FREE! If you own a PRO license for the latest version of our
    desktop software you’re entitled to a FREE lifetime Sync & Share subscription!

This feature has proven to be very popular, so this week we added it to all Connect editions.

It’s epidemic

July 1st, 2011

On June 28 one of our customers tweeted “@collectorz I am loving the Comic software and scanner. Cannot find in the instructions how to catalog without re-reading old issues ;-)”
This resulted in comments like ” I have that problem myself – though I’m not complaining about it” and “It must be an epidemic. I’m suffering that disease as well”.

Being a collector too, I suffer from that illness as well.

Our home organizing software for CDs, DVDs, books, comics and video games comes in two flavors: Standard and Pro.
Apart from the obvious difference in price (Standard is half the price), how exactly do they compare in terms of features?

Are you procrastinating cataloging your DVDs and Blu-rays because you think it is way too much work? Well, don’t.
Let me share my experience cataloging our shelves when I finally decided to organize our own movie collection.

When I started on the task I did not know how many movies and series we had, nor how much time it would take me to list them all.
My set up: Movie Collector Pro for Windows on my Vaio laptop and the OPN-2001 laser scanner.
