[prMac.com] Renton, Washington - Hooked In Motion today announce iCollect Movies HD 1.0 for iPad. iCollect Movies HD allows home movie watchers to catalog their movies using the barcode on the back of the case and obtain detailed information about each movie. The application supports barcodes worldwide from formats like Blu-ray, DVD, HD DVD, UMD, VHS, Betamax, and Laserdisc. iCollect Movies HD also features a detailed search feature, as well as wishlist, preorder features, and syncs directly with icollectmedia.com.
iCollect Movies HD, an iPad app and a companion to the iCollect set of iPhone apps, supports barcodes worldwide from formats like Blu-ray, DVD, HD DVD, UMD, VHS, Betamax, and Laserdisc. Simply by entering 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 entry. 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.
iCollect Movies HD also syncs directly with icollectmedia.com, allowing users to back up and share their collections via the web and other Apple devices, such as the iPhone and iPad touch.
