The barcode reader is fantastic!
A friend just referred me to your app and I thought I would try it out. It’s pretty awesome. Entering all of my comics is a pretty laborious task, but it’s much easier for n this app then it would be any other way. The barcode reader feature is fantastic!
I had issues trying to figure out a way to mark comics as “signed by X” but I figured it out! This is a great app! — Rusty Baily (USA) on CLZ Comics

Love this app
A real time saver. Scan your barcode and you have your collection on file. Now you know what you and what you need right at your fingertips. It gives you a picture of the cover as well. — turbotony E-3 on CLZ Comics

Best App Ever
CLZ is the Premier comic book Inventory App!! The Barcode Reader option is a huge time saver and when I do run across a Golden Oldy, the Manual Input option is complete and easy to use.
This is the Only Collection App that I recommend to my friends!!! — David Wolfe (USA) on CLZ Comics

CLZ is the best
CLZ is the perfect tool for comic collectors. It gives you a breath of information and even notes if an issue is a Key Issue and why it is, if it is. The golden ability is the bar code scanner. It knows just about every issue I run into, including collected editions and trades. Even when the scanner can't tell what issue it is it still tends to get the series correct. If anything I'd say if you're into tracking down comics CLZ is the best. — Devon Steward (USA) on CLZ Comics

Easy to use
I have been using CLZ to catalog my comics for a few days now. It’s great!! It’s easy to use, can search by series, issue and barcode. I have yet to uncover all of the features but so far I’m very happy with this app. — Kent 11 (Australia) on CLZ Comics

So many great features
I was sold by the barcode scanner and was blown away by the various sorting features. — Loren Fleming on CLZ Comics

Worth it
When I first heard I had to pay for this app I was apprehensive. Paying for an app doesn't always mean it's worth it. But the payment each month is low and very worth it. Being able to scan my comic collection in and find it in the database is great. I forgot how many I actually had before looking for them all here. — Reb Gates on CLZ Comics

CLZ is a great organization
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. — Mark Locascio (USA) on CLZ Comics

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

Barcode scanner

June 24, 2023
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
