  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Works better than expected Mar 6, 2020

    By epsmith4
    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.

  • Can't seem to work offline May 6, 2018

    By charloch
    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.

  • Outrageous Pricing Mar 28, 2019

    By Kakcpw
    First let me say that app functions quite well. The one huge feature missing is when you have several folders nested and then an item in the final folder. When you are actually in the item it does not show you the path of how to find the item. For example: Attic > Back Shelves > Middle Shelf > Box 1 > Video Camera. It does show this path (albeit very small font) in the Search function. But it should be inside the detailed view as well. Otherwise it kind of defeats the whole purpose of the app. But it doesn’t matter if this is the greatest app in the world because the price is so far out of bounds. Developer’s have gone crazy lately with this subscription based pricing. This app is basically used to inventory your household or business items. So it stands to reason that people will be using this app for a long period of time. But if I want to use this app to inventory my house over a 10 year period it will cost me $500. That is crazy!!! $500 for an app on my iPhone? That is almost as much as the phone itself. Absolute insanity and greed. Luckily there are other great options out there with flat fee pricing so I can actually own my data. I don’t like the fact that I am only “renting” my data with this app and they can change the pricing plan on me anytime they choose.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Pretty easy and useful, a little young Mar 23, 2020

    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.

    I love the idea of the app, and I want to use it as an individual owner taking care of my home items. The sum every month is simply too heavy to pay. I wish there was something similar for home inventory. I'm afraid I will have to stop using it. Would appreciate anyone recommend a home inventory app though!

  • 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.

    Wishful thinking. I've been watching reviews of this app on YouTube and was really exited to use for organizing my crafts. In the middle of adding folders and getting excited about it, I decided to read more recent reviews. Seems like the home version (all the reviews I had watched) is no longer avl and the app has moved to a consumer version at much higher prices. Even with the current discount $25 a month, its just too much for me. Guess going back to excel or paper. Really too bad.

  • Easy app for the tech-impaired! Very handy Mar 15, 2018

    By Designfolly
    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 like this app and it does what it claims. One thing I’m using it for is keep track of my wine inventory and none of the barcodes are recognized, which I can live with, BUT once I drink the bottle and delete it from inventory, I can’t scan the barcode for the same wine, the next time I buy it, and have it recognize the barcode. I have to re-enter all the info again. P.I.A. To the developer—Please allow the app to save these manually entered barcode descriptions for future use.

    Great concept, but flawed program. 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.

    Not worth $10 to $40 a month unless you run a good sized business. May want to research what your potential customer base WILL spend...especially with coronavirus affecting incomes and the potential to lose so much data and time input if one becomes laid off.

    This app has so much potential for people who want to do home Inventory the problem is they give you up to so many free entries but if you have a lot of items to inventory at home you going to need more than that and the prices for this or outrageous they need a non business price.

    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.

  • Very confusing and lacking very basic features! Nov 11, 2017

    By Beth1390
    There are no real instructions in the app. I had to go to a review on You Tube to figure out how to get to a screen to enter the purchase price. There’s no place to enter where you purchased the item, which makes it no good for insurance inventory. So I created tags for the stores to get around this. There’s no place for additional notes. No way to attach documents like manuals or warranties and no place to save links to them online. The PDF export samples provided in the Support page are a ridiculous waste of space and show almost no data such as purchase date, tags, etc., but I don’t know if that’s a flaw in the report design or if the developer just didn’t do a good job with the sample data - you’d have to purchase the Plus version just to find out what would actually show up on the reports.

  • Has potential but.... Sep 2, 2018

    By Mark Bordeos
    1. In search. Theres no quick action to change quantity. Only move function. 2. Moving is complicated. When i move to different folder one quantity at a time in same folder. It will not merge. Items are separated like they are different item. 3. No alert for stock or item that has zero value. Or below 3 qty. and export it as list in pdf form. 4. Pro is super expensive. With a not so pro-ish value, its not worth the money.
