Under My Roof version 1.5 is now available for download from the App Store and Mac App Store. This update brings the ability to designate items as container items. Container items are items that can also act as a location, such a bookcase, for instance, can contain books. We’ve also completely overhauled moving boxes and added other highly-requested enhancements, such as the ability to expand and collapse nested locations, categories, and moving boxes.
