Software and app updates related to 'movie collector' (page 2)
"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.

“I had bypassed upgrading my Movie Collector database software from version 6 to 7 because I didn’t see any point in it. The new features they were advertising weren’t necessary for my collection. But when they announced version 8 a few weeks ago, something caught my eye: the addition of trailers.
Not surprisingly, because the list of shiny new features is huge. However, the list is getting longer.

As said in yesterday’s post, we wanted to create a Comic Collector hero to feature in templates, banners and Comic Collector advertising in general. Her name is CeCe and she appears on our website and software templates. We like her so much that we asked the creator David Dunstan, aka Loopy Dave, to give her four siblings, one for each program.
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.
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: … “
