Three music organizer solutions - what's the difference?
1. CLZ Music: mobile app for iOS and Android:
CLZ Music is our mobile music 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 music list, even when offline.
It comes with a built-in barcode scanner, for adding albums to the mobile app's database, by scanning their barcodes.
CLZ Music can be used as a fully-stand-alone music cataloging app, or as a mobile companion to the Music Connect or Music Collector software on your big screen desktop computer (the data syncing between them through our CLZ Cloud system).
2. Music Connect: web-based software for any browser
Music Connect is web-based software, running on our servers, with your music database stored in our CLZ Cloud system. To use the software, just go to the Connect website with your internet browser and login.
Music 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 music collection and wish list
- prefer not having to deal with files, folders, backups, firewalls, software updates, etc...
3. Music Collector: downloadable software for Windows and macOS
Music 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.
Music Collector is our most advanced music 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 Music Connect on the desktop side and CLZ Music on the mobile side.
TIP: We offer a nice bundle discount for getting those two together.
