Brilliant. iOS 8.x no issues - exactly what I needed for my App, and so many uses as well. With a little playing with the XiB files was able to tune it just a little to suit my needs. Well worth the $$

Allow your app users to create and manage their own databases so they can catalog their collections of music, movies, video games, baseball cards, comic books, coins, or anything else that they want to keep track of.

Collector allows your users to create and manage a database of any type of objects they like, complete with photos, youtube videos, sliding rating systems and more. You can also choose from pre-installed collection themes and backgrounds. This is perfect for any type of database that you would like to add to your app and allow the end user to manage themselves.

You can of course create any type of collection template that you wish, or use the pre-installed templates, which include a Movie Collection, Music Collection, and Video Game Collection. You can also use your own backgrounds, or choose from any of the pre-installed ones such as wood grain, blue carbon, or brushed steel. All of this is selectable right from your control panel, with no code modification needed. You can also set the opening home screen slogan, and change all of the sliders to suit your own collection, right from your Buzztouch control panel.

All data is stored locally on the users device, and is tested and proven safe from updates, so no worries about your users losing their data if you upgrade your app. The only time the data will be removed is if the user deletes the app entirely from their device.

Full photo and youtube integration allows the user to add photos from their camera roll, take and add a live photo, and add youtube videos directly to the items screen. A single tap on the auto generated video thumbnail launches the video in full screen mode. This is perfect for movie trailers, music videos, or game demos.

We also incorporated a lending system, so users can keep track of their stuff if they loan it out to someone. They can also track the suggested MSRP versus what they actually paid for the item. This is great in collections where prices fluctuate, for example if you are collecting coins, baseball cards, comic book or other items where the value changes on a regular basis.

Collector is optimized for iOS of all sizes, including iPhone 3.5”, iPhone 4”, iPad, iPad Retina, and iPad Mini.

If you are getting “The JSON data for this app is invalid” error message, it’s because you didn’t go into the control panel of the Collector screen and select your options under “Rating Slider Configuration” & “Theme Selection”. Both of these save buttons must be pressed after selecting your options BEFORE downloading the source code, even if you want the default selected items.
