I am pleased to announce the release of Home Inventory 2.6.0, Home Inventory Mobile Backup 1.1.0, and Home Inventory Photo Remote 1.4.1.
Home Inventory 2.6.0
A while back I posted a poll in this blog asking everyone to pick the features they would most like to see in a future update. Support for native PDF receipts topped the list with nearly a quarter of the votes. Well, I’m happy to say this feature is now available in Home Inventory 2.6.0. Here is a complete list of features and fixes in this update:
- You can now add native PDF receipts to Home Inventory. The pages of receipts added from a PDF file are no longer converted to bitmapped images as in previous versions.
- A built-in PDF viewer lets you view and print PDF receipts. Support for viewing PDF receipts is also included in version 1.1.0 of the Home Inventory Mobile Backup companion app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
- When adding a new item to a collection using the Home Inventory Photo Remote companion app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, the item is automatically seeded with the default category and location associated with the collection. Home Inventory Photo Remote version 1.4.1 is required for this feature.
- Fixed a bug where barcode lookups were not searching Google Products if an item could not be found on Amazon.
How you get the update depends on where you purchased Home Inventory. If you purchased Home Inventory from the Mac App Store, please follow these instructions to install the Home Inventory 2.6.0 update:
- Launch the Mac App Store.
- Click the Updates button at the top of the Mac App Store window.
- In the list of applications with updates available, click the Update button to the right of Home Inventory.
If you purchased Home Inventory directly from us or from another source outside of the Mac App Store, you can download the latest update here:
Photo Remote 1.4.1
This update to Home Inventory Photo Remote 1.4.1 is a relatively minor one. It adds support for seeding items added to a collection with the default location and category associated with that collection. This feature requires Home Inventory 2.6.0. More substantial updates to the Photo Remote app will be coming later this year.
