Most people have a collection of some sort. Whether it be fine art, faberge eggs, vintage comic books, or simply a bunch of childhood toys that one just can't bring themselves to throw out, collections are important. They add to our identity, regardless of monetary value, and often bring about some great memories. Various apps in the past have attempted to make it easy to organize collections but I think that Snupps has the right balance here.
It's the layout that works particularly well for Snupps. Designed like a series of shelves, users can arrange their collections just like they would on real units. All it requires is some brief set up, naming a shelf and collection, before uploading images of each item in the set. Then, as much or as little detail as the user wants to include can be provided. It even offers up space to snap photos of receipts or warranties, proving ideal for those with expensive items.
Snupps allows users to divide things up either privately or publicly. Therefore, it's possible to create a private collection just for one's own consultation or to share a bunch of things with other people, proving quite fun for those wanting to show off a particularly cool collection. It's simply done with a clearly laid out slider bar allowing for private or public. Those with no interest in the social side of Snupps can always opt to remain completely private. It's pretty interesting to look through what other people collect though, and it's possible to follow people to see what they're up to. For those trying to complete a collection, this could be an ideal way of hooking up.
It's also possible through the magic of syncing to check one's collection from different devices such as one's iPad, iPhone, or even PC or Mac. That's the kind of feature that's particularly handy when out and about.
Fairly clear to learn and extra useful for the collector fiends out there, Snupps is pretty handy and bound to be of use to many who want to be a bit more organized about what they own.
