What about the Mac editions?

August 25th, 2011

Here’s a question we get a lot lately, in our support inbox,
on the Forum, on our Facebook page and on Twitter:

"What about the Mac editions?"

Or: when will there finally be an update for my Mac software?

Of course, the question is fully justified. The Mac editions of Music, Movie and Book Collector haven’t had a serious update for a long time.
Also, the new Comic Collector for Mac has not yet received the features left out of the 5.0 release.

Well, I am happy to announce that this is all going to change. Read on for our Mac OS X plans.

Mickie knows how to use her clapperboard

May 16th, 2011

When we started on the Collectorz.com character project, we had a completely different idea for the Movie Collector mascotte.
The first draft was for a James Bond kinda like a guy, the second rough was for an actress winning an Oscar.
This was the toughest hero to bring to life and we went back to the drawing board and came up with something completely different.

April 29th, 2011

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.

April 14th, 2011

Movie Collector got reviewed by George Norman for FindMySoft.com:

“I know it sounds dumb now, but back in the day I would keep track of my movie collection by using a pen and paper. I had a paper notebook and I would write down in it. But now I know better; I know that there are software applications out there that can do a way better job than that.

After turning to software for help, I found a properly good application out there to help me keep track of my movie collection. The application I am talking about is Collectorz.com Movie Collector. Here are the things I liked the most about this application: … “
