Latest software updates

I've been using the app since 2000 when I inherited my dad's 7000 book collection. Since then the app has had great upgrades, including a great scanner. I use the web based program on my computer, but I use the app when I'm out buying comics. It's easy to see which ones you need / have.
Also, the customer service is top notch: their staff knows the products, are extremely helpful and courteous and they continue to listen to their clients for improvement.

Super nice
So far, I'm loving CLZ. It's super nice to be able to see what I already have from a run and what I'm missing. Love the ability to use the barcode + ext to quickly scan all my comics into my collection. — Jacob Parker on CLZ Comics

Great for collecting!
I am loving this app! I’ve been adding books from my collection every chance I get. Let’s you keep track of single issues as well as trade paperbacks. Very user friendly. The barcode scanner is great, and adding issues manually is easy as well. — Thederv (USA) on CLZ Comics

Great experience
I have 12 long boxes that have just been moved from attic to basement for the last 20 years and I've now flown through boxes so I can know what I have. The key issue identifier is great so I know what to pull/bag/board before I eventually go through the list in more detail to look for any value. Super easy to use and intuitive, but really powerful. The bar code scanner is a game changer. — Brian Redfern (USA) on CLZ Comics

Would be lost without it!
Have had this app for a few years. Glad I paid for it. I can scan a barcode to see if I need it for my collection, it’s super easy to sort and organise and if I need help the customer service is brilliant!
A must have for any comic collector! — Tristo82 (Australia) on CLZ Comics

Best comic catalogue app
Best comic catalogue app/website I've found yet. Connects with CovrPrice for values and the barcode scabbing actually works. — Tim Woodruff on CLZ Comics
April 11, 2023
Wonderful support
I have had this app for several years without any issues. It’s very easy to enter to your comics, either by series or by scanning the barcode. I love checking the app when I’m shopping to see what I need or what I have. When I did run into an issue, I received help immediately and the issue was resolved quickly. I recommend this app to everyone who collects comics (and I’m probably also going to get the book one). — love cats (USA) on CLZ Comics

The Best Comic Storage App Ever
I have tried to maintain an accurate account of all my comics and have been very unsuccessful I’ve used tons of apps and none have work as well as this I could not believe how quickly I’m logging my collection and the scanning feature really makes the process very fast. Also is catalogue of comics makes it even more easy to type in titles and select the comics you have. I love this app. I hope they can move into the realm of toy collecting as well. — Frustrated Fans Comics (USA) on CLZ Comics

Barcode scanner works great
The app is very easy to use and can keep track of a large number of comics. The barcode scanner works great and support is very kind and prompt with replies. It's worth the money for sure! — Piper Null on CLZ Comics

The best Comic Collecting app out there
For years I spent hours cataloging comics on spread sheets. Time consuming is a polite word to use. NOW I scan and the program does the rest. — Dan Benway on CLZ Comics

I’ve used CLZ off and on for years but their partnership with Covrprice for comic values is the icing on the cake. I still occasionally run into issues with a barcode not scanning correctly but adding the comic manually works just fine. Best app out there. — Johntlogan1974 (USA) on CLZ Comics

A life changing app for comic fans
I was introduced to this app years ago by a friend and fellow comic fan. Like people for 50 years before me, I was keep track of issues I had and still wanted in a little notebook. Always wondering if I remembered to scratch something off or add the right volume in. Then I got this app. A simple scan every Wednesday and I’m always up to date on what I have and need. I even recently had a wonderful experience with their customer support after a new phone glitch. They followed up with me continuous until it was resolved. A must have app for every comic fan. — CHumphreys87 (USA) on CLZ Comics

Time and money saver! Excellent visual aid as well
I’m really pleased with this app. I started collecting again, as usual by stealth. In other words, I started with one or two titles that caught my eye, and the next thing I’m some sort of galactic expert in the field with nothing off the table when it comes to additional books. Idiot.
The app has basically taken over my limited brain space and is making this fool’s endeavour considerably more manageable. It was getting to the point where I was beginning to duplicate, being certain that I didn’t have issues here, and had issues there… That’s the problem when the list gets to a certain size.
Being able to instantly refer to my entire graphic media collection is awesome. I’m not using all of the features to their full extent, but it does what I need it to do right now with plenty of scope to add extra layers of detail as and when time and will permit.
The latest update claims to fix an iPhone 14 bar code scanning issue. Maybe it does, but truth be told it hasn’t really been a problem anyway, with good lighting and a steady hand. If it’s improved at all, Brucey Bonus!
So, if you want a brilliant visual guide to your collected books, with easy to use detailed fields and the ability to create custom fields, and the ability to import data in real-time using the book’s barcode (or manually entered reference). If you want to sync to cloud and to other devices, quickly, safely, and reliably, all for a really good subscription, this is the one.
I would normally avoid anything with a subscription model like this, but it’s such a reasonable price to support the developer and the data source maintenance etc. that I really can’t say it’s not massively good value for money.
Anyway. Hopefully if you’re hovering on the edge of going for it, do it. It really is worth it and it’s a joy to use. So impressed am I that I’ve plumped for the “Book” version and probably will go for the “Music” as well. — Cap'n Stevie (United Kingdom) on CLZ Comics

Amazing app!
The barcode feature makes searching easy. The way the app groups my collection and allows me to sort through it based on different criteria. — Chris Andreasen on CLZ Comics

Can't believe I just now tried this out. After a month of use, it's by far the best app for collectors. Haven't ran into any issues so far. Lots of great stuff in this app, my fav 2 are the barcode scanner and missing issues. So convenient. — Michael Pianella on CLZ Comics
September 26, 2022
Very good app
Pretty good so far, had trouble finding some series, but there is a manual entry and barcode entry for extra help. This app is good for not buying multiples at the shops and organizing what I have, it's been a great help. — Geoff Hewey on CLZ Comics
September 12, 2022
Highly recommend it
Definitely a must for anyone wanting an inventory of your collection. This app makes super easy to either scan the barcode or manually enter your comic into the database. Gives a description of writer, cover artists and interior artist name. Has pictures of all the covers, including the variants. Very through and detailed app. My experience with this app has been amazing. — David Pedroza on CLZ Comics

Does all the things I wanted!
I've scanned and organized over 500 comics since downloading this a few weeks ago. Easy to use, editable fields, and you can hide fields that you don't care about using. Also notes first character appearances and other notable elements. — Donna Reinhold on CLZ Comics

Worth it
I've been subscribed for years. Initially got it to index comics with the barcode scanner, now finding alot more interesting information through the newer stats and keys data. Filtering still needs a bit of work, but new features consistently continue to make it better. Well worth the cost of the subscription. — Andrew Succi on CLZ Comics

Outstanding app
The amount of info it provides with each issue is great, I love that you can just scan your comics to find them in the app, and the feature that tells you what issues you're missing is really handy. — Dustin Nichols on CLZ Comics
