[prMac.com] Kent, Washington - iCollect Movies from Hooked In Motion, a UPC barcode scanning iPhone/iPod Touch application on the App Store, has reached #33 in the Reference category in just a matter of 4 days. It's also cataloging movies from users at an incredible rate, with over 3000 new UPC barcodes with pictures and information being added to the central database daily, and increasing.
"iCollect Movies has taken off, growing faster than we ever imagined it would" said Ethan C. Allen, Hooked In Motion's founder and CEO. "We're cataloging movies and associating them directly with their barcodes, with great meta information such as cover art and resolution, region codes and ratings, from all over the world. We've got people in Germany submitting movies by the second. The amount of North American movies we've already put together is incredible. Never before, not on Amazon.com or IMDB, has barcode information been linked directly to verified meta information in such a way at such a rapid pace. And thanks to the iPhone, it's all possible in the palms of our users hands."
Hooked In Motion has teamed up with Occipital, the creators of Red Laser, the #1 selling app on the iPhone/iPod App Store, to release iCollect Movies. Utilizing UPC barcode scanning technology from Occipital, iCollect Movies allows home movie watchers to scan in their movies using the barcode on the back of the case and obtain detailed information about each movie. iCollect Movies also features a detailed search feature, as well as wishlist and preorder features.
iCollect Movies, an iPhone/iPod application, supports barcodes worldwide from formats like Blu-ray, DVD, HD DVD, UMD, VHS, Betamax, and Laserdisc. Simply by scanning in a movie they own or a movie at a store, users can see details like never before. Each movie record contains more information than IMDB, and includes details such as regions, subtitles, aspect ratios, and pictures of the actual case that the UPC barcode belongs to. With the simple touch of a button, users can add the movie to their collection and manage it from within the app.
The application features a number of unique features beyond just barcode scanning. Using the wishlist and preorder features, users can keep track of which movies to buy in the future quickly and easily. They'll also be able to easily switch between DVDs and Blu-rays on their main catalog screen. Searching is in depth and allows users to see all movies that they own starring a specific actor, or all movies under 90 minutes, for example.
* iPhone or iPod Touch 3.1 or later
