[prMac.com] Columbus, Ohio - Minder Softworks today updated MYStuff to version 1.3, adding CSV import and one-click image and manual searching to the application. Designed to be the first "stuff manager" for OS X, MYStuff combines the best features of PDF managers and home inventory programs. MYStuff gives users an intuitive way of filing and finding their information.
MYStuff makes it easy to file and find information about the things you own. You simply make a new record, and key in what you bought, where you bought it, how much you paid and how you paid for it, warranty information, and other key data. Then you can add an unlimited number of files to the record: a scan of the receipt, photos of the item, a PDF of the manual, and anything else you would like to add. To make this process easier, MYStuff's MYInbox feature allows users to quickly add files to MYStuff from other applications.
MYStuff 1.3 adds a Search tab to the FileFinder palette. The Search tab takes Manufacturer and Model information you have already entered, formulates a Google query, and opens the search in your default web browser. This allows users to quickly find photos and user manuals for their Records, which can then be added quickly to existing records.
This release also adds CSV import from files created by MYStuff, and five other applications: Delicious Library, Home Inventory, Know Your Stuff, Paperless, and WarrantyHero. Users who already have a lot of records in one of these other applications who want to transition to MYStuff will be able to easily do so without re-entering all their data. In addition to these new features, MYStuff allows you to easily back up your data, print lists for insurance claims, and view your records as lists or as images.
MYStuff will immediately draw comparisons to popular PDF- and note-managing applications, home-inventory applications, receipt-tracking applications, and warranty-tracking applications. MYStuff is none of these things, and yet it is all of these things. PDF managers concentrate on allowing users to file and find documents, but provide no way of entering information about individual items. Home inventory programs allow tracking information about individual items, but provide little or no way to track the documents about the item. MYStuff has all the best features of each of these applications, and puts them in a simple, easy-to-use interface.
Every year, people throw away countless products that are still covered by a warranty. Most often, they are unaware that the product is still under warranty because they cannot find the receipt and warranty information from the time of purchase, which may have been a year ago or maybe ten years ago. As a result, they replace an item that could have been repaired for free, thus costing them money. Keeping important paperwork organized is a tremendous amount of work, which explains why so few people do it. MYStuff helps users file and find their information quickly and easily, saving them both time and money.
MYStuff will run on any Intel or PowerPC Mac running OS X 10.5.8 or later, including Snow Leopard.
