Three movie organizer solutions - what's the difference?
1. CLZ Movies: mobile app for iOS and Android:
CLZ Movies is our mobile movie organizer app, for our iPhone, iPad or Android phone or tablet. It stores your data and images on your device, so that you can always access your movie list, even when offline.
It comes with a built-in barcode scanner, for adding movies to the mobile app's database, by scanning their barcodes.
CLZ Movies can be used as a fully-stand-alone movie cataloging app, or as a mobile companion to the Movie Connect or Movie Collector software on your big screen desktop computer (the data syncing between them through our CLZ Cloud system).
2. Movie Connect: web-based software for any browser
Movie Connect is web-based software, running on our servers, with your movie database stored in our CLZ Cloud system. To use the software, just go to the Connect website with your internet browser and login.
Movie Connect is designed to be a lightweight cataloging tool, that is easy to use and easy to manage.
It is the better choice for users who :
- just need a simple way to keep track of their movie collection and wish list
- prefer not having to deal with files, folders, backups, firewalls, software updates, etc...
3. Movie Collector: downloadable software for Windows and macOS
Movie Collector is downloadable desktop software, that you install and run on your own computer, with your data and images stored locally, on your own hard-drive.
Movie Collector is our most advanced movie database solution, aimed at users who:
- are advanced computer users, comfortable with installing and updating software, dealing with folders, files, backups, firewall exceptions etc...
- need the most flexible cataloging solution, that can be fully customized in terms of fields, views and layouts.
Having problems deciding which one is best for you?
For most users, we recommend a combination of Movie Connect on the desktop side and CLZ Movies on the mobile side.
TIP: We offer a nice bundle discount for getting those two together.
