    it's only when you start packing that you realize you have about 100 more things to pack than you originally thought. To avoid wasting sometimes even 6 hours on figuring out where goes what, you can keep a moving checklist and easily avoid the troublesome chaos.

    When running a retail store, the last thing you want is your inventory is running short while you're 200 miles away from the store. You can easily keep an eye on the store's inventory and make important decisions no matter where you are.

    Watching your stamp collection grow is extremely rewarding, but once you have over 500 or even 1,000 stamps, it can get a little tricky to keep track of every single one. You can catalog and inventory your whole collection, and write detailed notes so you always have a reference to fall back on.

    If you want to get rid of 100s of CDs, DVDs, or books, the first step in getting rid of them is to know what you actually have. Here you can organize your inventory of stuff and decide what to keep and what to get rid of.

    Organizing your collection is easy when you only have a few pieces but once it goes beyond 100, things can get tricky. This inventory app offers a simple yet thorough solution, letting you catalog your entire collection and write detailed notes on each item.

    Controlling your stock is easy when you're around but, once you set out on a business trip, things can get tricky. This app will allow you to manage your inventory remotely and tag and file each item through an intuitive user interface - even if you're 500 miles away.

    If you're like me and you have 10 different collections, how do you keep them all straight? This app has helped with saving my sanity and money because I don't have to worry about buying anything I already have. I just look in my app to see whether it's on the list.

    Having a dozen pairs of shoes is perfectly manageable but once your collection grows beyond 50, you will need a good inventory to categorize your designer pieces.

  • Amazing!! Made organizing super easy and effortless. May 11, 2019

    By BrendaDoc
    For some context - I spent months trying and testing out almost 10 different apps to help me organize my office and home. After a comprehensive search I decided on Sortly. I have never given a review before but I think this was deserved. Each app had its flaws and advantages but with Sortly there was no compromise. I was amazed by how simple and visual it was. It took me almost no time to get started It’s incredibly intuitive and their folders based system makes it really easy to see/organize your stuff. I was able to catalog my items by location and then tag items based on type. In the last 2 weeks I have logged almost all stuff (over 300 items) and it saves me about 4-5 hours each week not having to manually search for items every time a client calls asking for them. I did have a couple of issues syncing between my sortly desktop and sortly mobile but I think it was temporary (maybe because of my bad rural internet) aside from that it’s been near perfect. My next step is to start using the qr labels feature to so that I can start searching for stuff by scanning to start saving myself more time. I have also sent their team suggestions to make the app work even better ( they are saying some of them are already in the works) If you are looking for an app to get your office organized, I could not be more confident to recommend Sortly.

  • It was all good until this last update, very disappointed! Nov 3, 2019

    By DestinedForGreatness4Ever
    I really enjoy this app, but now after this last update it has gone down hill. I used this app because I had the ability to keep my info secure if anyone was using my phone. You were able to have a security options to put a passcode or Face ID to open the app. Now anyone can open if anyone was using my phone in passing. So now someone who is using my phone in passing for some odd situation, they could accidentally open my app and see all my inventory. Why would you pay for a secure service that doesn’t let you keep your app secure. Also, you were able to choose stock images for your photos and they took that away as well. If you’re going to make an update, why would you make it worse, it was better before. Please give us back the features that make this app worth having, if this app doesn’t allow to have a passcode option anymore, I may have to go to a different app. May have to do the whole file & folder option in Dropbox, at least I can keep someone from opening my files encase I had my phone unlocked and they picked it up. This really is a downgrade, I’m so disappointed.

  • Great for collectibles, kids toys, books, or any list! Jun 19, 2018

    By Laceylace26
    I love this app! I'm still using the free version and its so easy to use that not only do I have a couple of my collections uploaded and organized, but I have started to use it for my kids toys and books too. Amelia Bedelia, fancy Nancy, and Skippy Jon Jones are some favorites. Because we go to the library to borrow books I can't always remember which titles we actually own, so when I'm at a second hand store I no longer end up buying duplicate copies of a book we already have. Same with their toys- trolls, my little pony, hatchamils, shopkins, etc. one of my kids loves to "check on their stuff" so I added folders for stuffed animals, super heroes, Lego sets, etc with just a picture of the item for them to scroll through & they love it. And because you can export and save the data, my spouse is considering using the app to keep track of all the household manuals, receipts, etc. Highly recommend this app!

    Update 6/11/21: contacted Sortly support as indicated by developer comment to find bulk editing feature. I was told that it is not offered in the mobile app and must be done through the desktop version. Bulk Editing in the mobile app would make the app so much more useful. Add Bulk Edit!!! You can bulk edit items in specific folders from the website but not from the mobile application. This would make it so much simpler to use at different points in the supply chain.

    Sortly is hands’ down the best app I’ve come across. It is so intuitive to learn and I continue to be amazed at the practical functionality. It does what I need without overdoing it (unlike most of the other apps I’ve come across). This is a real game changer for me as I am trying to get my inventory organized. I sell in different places and up until Sortly came along, honestly I didn’t really know where all my pots were! Now, I have a photo to go along with the listing so I know which piece is where and I can generate a .pdf that has the listing and photo to keep my books straight. I would love to upgrade to be able to generate barcodes but maybe on down the road I can do that. Thank you for a truly helpful app that made my life EASIER instead of HARDER! Hope you have lots of success with this. I think you will.

  • Not efficient. Look elsewhere Sep 24, 2021

    By SillyMe1020
    We’re a home stage business so we have quite a lot of inventory. This system’s theory is great but in reality, it’s a pain in the @&$. And yes, it’s expensive bc it doesn’t put out any value for the money we’re paying and investing our resources and manpower into. It lacks a drag and drop system. There are days when we can see quick snap shots of items in each subfolder, then there are days when it shows those folders are empty. It doesn’t track where the item’s been history if that job site gets deleted. We’re limited to listing out only 50 vendors when we need to track a lot more. You’re constantly needing to use more clicks than necessary. By the time we’re done creating a manifest/pull for each job, my arm and wrist is sore because the “next” and “save” buttons aren’t near each other. We can’t see the “Available” inventory without having to go out of the screen to go into a job site’s catalog and vice versa. We sent them a whole list of things that could use improving but barely anything has been done. The system’s always down. We reply on this every single day. I wish we had never gotten into this system to begin with. Now we’re stuck with an inferior product.

    I signed up because I need to get this off my chest. My employer used this to track his inventory. Whether you should use this app to inventory over 30,000 items is questionable. What isn't questionable is Sortly's terrible search algorithm and space-wasting UI. Search gave me different results depending on whether I used the iphone or laptop I was provided with. Using the "" operator was a total gamble. My supervisor hated it. My coworkers hated it. Sort your search out, Sortly.
  • Hook you in, then raise to ridiculous price May 24, 2020

    By KStough
    I subscribed to this app a year ago to inventory a small children’s book collection. At $4.99/month, I felt this was a reasonable price. For the last year, I’ve taken pictures and painstakingly entered books/details, up to over 700 entries. Two days ago, I receive notice that my subscription is no longer available and the only plans that are offered cost around $500/year. The only option I’m given is a free account with up to 100 entries or exporting my info within 3 days and canceling my subscription. I’ve looked over other complaints about their high pricing and see their excuse is that they’ve “transitioned to business plans” and see that they don’t offer smaller pricing to people like me, that were attracted by what it appeared an app with a name like “Sortly” would be meant to do (i.e. sort and inventory household items and collections). Now that I’ve entered everything and used it for the last year (and yes, it worked great for my needs) I guess they expect me to give in and pay the higher price. This is an awful way to treat people.
  • Sortly. No customer service Aug 10, 2021

    By Brianna Griffin 338
    Have had nothing but problems with this program. It is very simple programming errors that they seem not to care about or address at all. Every time we have had issues, we try to call, but there is no number they just make you email. However I receive a response saying they will get back to us and then never respond from there. We are basically just communicating with a computer system with no human interaction. Problems we have: (1) website doesn’t communicate with app and is severely delayed. (2) Items don’t update when you edit them. For instance, I change a quantity on an item, press save, and it doesn’t update. Have to do that about ten times or more for it to register. Causes major problems. (3) when you move like items back into a folder, they don’t merge. So if you have 2 of the same item, move one over to a stage, and then move it back, it duplicates the item instead of merging back with the original. OVERALL LOTS OF PROBLEM AND ABSOLUTELY NO HELP ON BEHALF OF SORTLY. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A BASIC INVENTORY SYSTEM WITH LOTS OF GLITCHES, THIS IS FOR YOU!
  • Ridiculously OVERPRICED! Feb 4, 2021

    By Dragonberry11
    I have been using this app since 2014 for moving. I have moved around 5 times since first using the app. I loved everything about it from taking photos and printing out QR labels. It really helped keep my move organized. I loved finding something that I had packed up in a moving box quickly and easily using the QR label. It sure did beat opening tons of boxes and throwing items around trying to find the one thing I needed. I am moving again here soon and I went to Sortly right away to start the tedious task of packing only to find to my dismay that the once free tools within the app are now priced. I’m not saying affordability priced, but RIDICULOUSLY OVERPRICED! Over $400 for a tool that used to be free! I’m seriously disappointed with the developers of Sortly. They definitely lost my recommendations to friends and family(which I have on numerous times)HIGHLY suggested they too use this app. Not any longer. I’m very sad to be parting ways with Sortly. Time to find another more affordable app to assist in making my move less stressful. -No longer a valued user for this once great app.

    i am a collector and wanted to be able to sort my collection, however I have more than 100 items, and the upgrade price is HUGE! $40-$100 a MONTH! It sucks because the platform and app was perfect for what I needed it for, and now I can't use it and I wasted all that time entering for nothing. I see that they are trying to move on from personal inventory to being a business platform, but it sucks that they are ignoring the needs of their original consumers by getting rid of the home option.

    I got the free version to try initially & loved it...easy to use, nice look, & allowed me to organize things well. After about a month photos & icons started disappearing. It wasn't because the photos synced to the cloud & were no longer on my device -when I moved them back they still wouldn't reset. I reached out to Sortly support, but they weren't helpful. The only way to get photos back seems to be to retake them. No thanks...I wouldn't pay for this. Without photos I have no use for this app.

    I'm sorry, but paying $5 a month just to have an inventory of items I own is freaking ridiculous. I was hoping to have am app I could keep track of items that arent books or movies so I know what I have before buying. It works well for free, but I have more than 100 items to sort in my life and the fact o have to manually input each one because the scanner is only available for the paid version makes me never want to use it. If it was one, SINGLE payment. Sure. Not yearly/monthly, though.
  • Worst app of all time! Jan 4, 2018

    By Davyator
    They have tried to turn this app into a money-making machine, and they have disabled core functions for long-term users. It is worse than extortion because you are not compensated for all the time you wasted using this app. I’m serious. My wife spent 5 hours uploading pictures to the app. They were only saved on the app and not her camera roll on her iPhone. Anyway, she couldn’t get the photos to synchronize for some reason. We tried everything to resolve it to no avail. So, we tried logging out and logging back in. All of her latest photos (like 250) were lost, and hours upon end of work was lost. I logout and login to systems all day, and I don’t expect to lose data and photos when I do so. Shame on you Sortly! My request for help has gone unanswered to my satisfaction. It is like they play run-around games when you try to find out what happened to your pictures.
  • Very Versatile Nov 29, 2019

    By Hineniyhvh
    Excellent app and very versatile. I was able to combine this app with my Collectorz apps and when I got tired of details, could just take a picture and give a general description. Only one quirk was discovered. I couldn't create sub-locations within other sub-locations. Other than that, it was great. I wrote this review before Sorty decided they wanted my money. I had everything in storage for years, and the program was helpful for me finding things in their specific boxes. Then Sorty wouldn’t let me update unless I purchased it. I started losing track of what I had and where it was. Now Sorty won’t even let me use what I had unless I create a login. I’m very unhappy at this moment because I can’t tell which of my boxes I should open to find specific items.

    By Ituyyrdgrdhg
    I’ve enjoyed using Sortly to get my team workshop inventory organized. The apps are very handy. Using the Advanced level. I imported around 700 items and missed fixing something before importing the data. So I am clicking on each item via their web interface and fixing each. So many clicks! I should have been more careful. I would really, really like it if they supported a wireless label printer, like the Dymo model. They only support the Dymo label writer 450 which connects to a PC via USB. So all those smartphones and iPads in the office can’t make a label. We end up making a label, sending it via email to the person with the label printer and then they print it. Yuck. Looking forward to this obvious need.

    Sortly is the perfect solution for me. I'm using the subscription (~$5) version of the app to organize a major move. I have temporary accommodation for the next 5 months before moving to another continent, I have things in storage, things for sale, things ready to be shipped - a lot to keep track of. With Sortly I know exactly what is in each box, and what I intend to do with each item. Couldn't be happier.

  • Update makes things harder Nov 7, 2019

    By NOLA Gurl
    I like this app. I use it to manage my supplement inventory so it’s easier to order more. Before the latest update that requires you to register, this was simple to use. Now, if I want to update the quantity of something, instead of just being able to touch one button and then a minus sign to decrease it, I have to do a bunch of keystrokes. I get that this is easier for business users who may be increasing or decreasing inventory by large quantities, but could you go back to having it all on one screen and maybe letting people have the option of just pressing a + or - to change in single increments and a second option for larger changes. Fewer strokes are better and now, doing something simple takes three times the strokes than it did before. There is a way to please everyone, I think.

    This is an awesome app to help organize & sort my stamps, inks, dies & supplies. I'd give it a 5 star if only within the app can the photos be edited. I tried taking the pics with the camera & editing there & adding it to the file. I didn't want to have all my craft supply pics on my phone. So, I deleted them from my phone's album & storage. Only to find my pics were also deleted from the file I created in the app. Using the camera within the app, the pics are not centered & no editing option.

    This app helps you get the most out of your iPhone - great for home inventory, or any hobby or small business. You don’t need fancy bookkeeping software to track your inventory. Softly will turn it into a spreadsheet. You can see the value of your items at a glance right in your phone too, so if you’re a reseller it’s a huge help. The perfect solution for anyone dealing with one-of-kind items. Use it for shopping lists, moving lists, or travel. Keep track of your home improvement and decorating projects with a couple of clicks. Save your stuff to your computer, online storage, or just email it to yourself. Super simple.

I use this for my company (we pay monthly) and at first it was great but now, after using this for more than 8 months, I am always having to login / out (even deleting/reinstalling) which prompts it to begin syncing (can take up to an hour). Many of our employees have similar issues. Items will either be missing or not sync properly and can be very frustrating... Like I said, the thought behind the program is great, but definitely needs a lot of bugs fixed.

    When accessing an already established database with thousands of pictures it wants to download and sync those thousands of photos, rather than downloading them as I try to access that item. This seems entirely backwards. The rest of the app seems to function as expected, but I'll be deleting it and sticking to the desktop version until that issue can be addressed.
  • Can't seem to work offline May 6, 2018

    My goods are located in a place with weak wifi. This app apparently requires updating in real time for every single adjustment? It's so tedious and time consuming to wait for it to reboot the entire catalog and all the photos after every entry that it makes pencil and paper look like a rocket ship. So you can't for example, do a count of all goods in a folder off line, and then sync it when you are done. It works offline, but as soon as you go on line you lose all the data you just entered (it reverts). Perhaps there is a work around, who knows? As far as I can tell from 30 minutes of looking, their customer service consist of a list of questions and answers, none of which mention off line adjustments. They don't seem to have interest in communicating/servicing customers. So if your goods are in a refer, or basement or anywhere that does not have smoking broadband, or if your wifi plunks out occasionally, good luck. Maybe I am wrong, who knows, no one to ask.

    Meh. Sortly Plus is better than most (and there aint too many options out there that actually works or is easy to work with or has flexibility in recording/sorting any information desired (Sortly fails on this point)). One thing to keep in mind, this is just an inventory app and as such excells, but as a collection database record, it sucks. go look elsewhere. I like that its cross-platform compatible (even tho the PC is only via web browser and doesnt have a dedicated app). HOWEVER, I collect guitars and Sortly Plus cannot record anything more than the most basic info (a name and a serial number, is pretty much it, aside from ONE pic/record). Cannot record any other info such as where/whom/when I bought it from, amount paid, color, setup info, any notes (<- note plural, i usually have more than one notes related to each item), web links to any resources/info, cannot attach files, etc. Methinks I may cancel subscription before trial ends... I know that Sortly Pro supposedly does that BUT at $25US/month, that is WAY too much out of pocket for a private individual to justify. I dont mind paying for functionality, but not that much.

    Enjoyed using app past few months. Started with free version. It is easy to understand and use. When I got serious about creating folders and photographing items I immediately realized I wanted more options and was willing to pay for them. Unfortunately Sortly has decided to go with big business at $50+/mo minimum. I am an at home cookier. This is out of my price range. Glad I found this out now b4 maxing out my allotted 100 entries. For this reason I rate it a 3 bc my business doesn't matter.

    Need a way to communicate trouble ticket details to development. Found several issues. We think the system is easy to use and the label system saves time. We did run across some development issues but there's does not seem to be any phone support to troubleshoot or advise of issues within the program. Great start to an easy to use system. Needs a little tweaking.

    I purchased this app as a home user for my extensive collections and belongings, such as books, toys, barbies, liquor, glass, china, etc... This app is very easy to use. As of Jan 2019, pictures still disappear and you cannot enter a book by scan or isbn (and yes, we know pro does, but I dont have a business). As an individual wanting to be more organized, I would give this app 4 stars if the pics didn't constantly disappear and it would be 5 stars if books could be entered by ISBN or scan.

    I signed up because I need to get this off my chest. My employer used this to track his inventory. Whether you should use this app to inventory over 30,000 items is questionable. What isn't questionable is Sortly's terrible search algorithm and space-wasting UI. Search gave me different results depending on whether I used the iphone or laptop I was provided with. Using the "" operator was a total gamble. My supervisor hated it. My coworkers hated it. Sort your search out, Sortly.

    I got the free version to try initially & loved it...easy to use, nice look, & allowed me to organize things well. After about a month photos & icons started disappearing. It wasn't because the photos synced to the cloud & were no longer on my device -when I moved them back they still wouldn't reset. I reached out to Sortly support, but they weren't helpful. The only way to get photos back seems to be to retake them. No thanks...I wouldn't pay for this. Without photos I have no use for this app.

    I'm sorry, but paying $5 a month just to have an inventory of items I own is freaking ridiculous. I was hoping to have am app I could keep track of items that arent books or movies so I know what I have before buying. It works well for free, but I have more than 100 items to sort in my life and the fact o have to manually input each one because the scanner is only available for the paid version makes me never want to use it. If it was one, SINGLE payment. Sure. Not yearly/monthly, though.
  • Not efficient. Look elsewhere Sep 24, 2021

    We’re a home stage business so we have quite a lot of inventory. This system’s theory is great but in reality, it’s a pain in the @&$. And yes, it’s expensive bc it doesn’t put out any value for the money we’re paying and investing our resources and manpower into. It lacks a drag and drop system. There are days when we can see quick snap shots of items in each subfolder, then there are days when it shows those folders are empty. It doesn’t track where the item’s been history if that job site gets deleted. We’re limited to listing out only 50 vendors when we need to track a lot more. You’re constantly needing to use more clicks than necessary. By the time we’re done creating a manifest/pull for each job, my arm and wrist is sore because the “next” and “save” buttons aren’t near each other. We can’t see the “Available” inventory without having to go out of the screen to go into a job site’s catalog and vice versa. We sent them a whole list of things that could use improving but barely anything has been done. The system’s always down. We reply on this every single day. I wish we had never gotten into this system to begin with. Now we’re stuck with an inferior product.
  • Hook you in, then raise to ridiculous price May 24, 2020

    By KStough
    I subscribed to this app a year ago to inventory a small children’s book collection. At $4.99/month, I felt this was a reasonable price. For the last year, I’ve taken pictures and painstakingly entered books/details, up to over 700 entries. Two days ago, I receive notice that my subscription is no longer available and the only plans that are offered cost around $500/year. The only option I’m given is a free account with up to 100 entries or exporting my info within 3 days and canceling my subscription. I’ve looked over other complaints about their high pricing and see their excuse is that they’ve “transitioned to business plans” and see that they don’t offer smaller pricing to people like me, that were attracted by what it appeared an app with a name like “Sortly” would be meant to do (i.e. sort and inventory household items and collections). Now that I’ve entered everything and used it for the last year (and yes, it worked great for my needs) I guess they expect me to give in and pay the higher price. This is an awful way to treat people.
  • Sortly. No customer service Aug 10, 2021

    By Brianna Griffin 338
    Have had nothing but problems with this program. It is very simple programming errors that they seem not to care about or address at all. Every time we have had issues, we try to call, but there is no number they just make you email. However I receive a response saying they will get back to us and then never respond from there. We are basically just communicating with a computer system with no human interaction. Problems we have: (1) website doesn’t communicate with app and is severely delayed. (2) Items don’t update when you edit them. For instance, I change a quantity on an item, press save, and it doesn’t update. Have to do that about ten times or more for it to register. Causes major problems. (3) when you move like items back into a folder, they don’t merge. So if you have 2 of the same item, move one over to a stage, and then move it back, it duplicates the item instead of merging back with the original. OVERALL LOTS OF PROBLEM AND ABSOLUTELY NO HELP ON BEHALF OF SORTLY. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A BASIC INVENTORY SYSTEM WITH LOTS OF GLITCHES, THIS IS FOR YOU!
  • Ridiculously OVERPRICED! Feb 4, 2021

    By Dragonberry11
    I have been using this app since 2014 for moving. I have moved around 5 times since first using the app. I loved everything about it from taking photos and printing out QR labels. It really helped keep my move organized. I loved finding something that I had packed up in a moving box quickly and easily using the QR label. It sure did beat opening tons of boxes and throwing items around trying to find the one thing I needed. I am moving again here soon and I went to Sortly right away to start the tedious task of packing only to find to my dismay that the once free tools within the app are now priced. I’m not saying affordability priced, but RIDICULOUSLY OVERPRICED! Over $400 for a tool that used to be free! I’m seriously disappointed with the developers of Sortly. They definitely lost my recommendations to friends and family(which I have on numerous times)HIGHLY suggested they too use this app. Not any longer. I’m very sad to be parting ways with Sortly. Time to find another more affordable app to assist in making my move less stressful. -No longer a valued user for this once great app.

    i am a collector and wanted to be able to sort my collection, however I have more than 100 items, and the upgrade price is HUGE! $40-$100 a MONTH! It sucks because the platform and app was perfect for what I needed it for, and now I can't use it and I wasted all that time entering for nothing. I see that they are trying to move on from personal inventory to being a business platform, but it sucks that they are ignoring the needs of their original consumers by getting rid of the home option.
  • Worst app of all time! Jan 4, 2018

    By Davyator
    They have tried to turn this app into a money-making machine, and they have disabled core functions for long-term users. It is worse than extortion because you are not compensated for all the time you wasted using this app. I’m serious. My wife spent 5 hours uploading pictures to the app. They were only saved on the app and not her camera roll on her iPhone. Anyway, she couldn’t get the photos to synchronize for some reason. We tried everything to resolve it to no avail. So, we tried logging out and logging back in. All of her latest photos (like 250) were lost, and hours upon end of work was lost. I logout and login to systems all day, and I don’t expect to lose data and photos when I do so. Shame on you Sortly! My request for help has gone unanswered to my satisfaction. It is like they play run-around games when you try to find out what happened to your pictures.
  • Very Versatile Nov 29, 2019

    By Hineniyhvh
    Excellent app and very versatile. I was able to combine this app with my Collectorz apps and when I got tired of details, could just take a picture and give a general description. Only one quirk was discovered. I couldn't create sub-locations within other sub-locations. Other than that, it was great. I wrote this review before Sorty decided they wanted my money. I had everything in storage for years, and the program was helpful for me finding things in their specific boxes. Then Sorty wouldn’t let me update unless I purchased it. I started losing track of what I had and where it was. Now Sorty won’t even let me use what I had unless I create a login. I’m very unhappy at this moment because I can’t tell which of my boxes I should open to find specific items.
