For years, I've been using MagicAssistant, because it worked both on linux and windows, but lately the interface for some reason became very buggy and also it has a major problem: it updates only from gatherer, so it does not know about FNM promos and other promo "sets"
I have an account on deckbox.org, but i'd rather use an actual windows/linux application or and app on android, than to do things trough my browser.
I downloaded the trial version of Deckedbuilder, but that one also gets updates from gatherer, so no promos there.
Does anyone know an application that is cross platform and knows ALL physically printed cards?
in the past few weeks i tried a few apps/applications for MTG inventory management, here are is a summary of the results:
MagicAssistant: as mentioned before, no promos of any kind, that is not on gatherer, but at least it runs also on linux
Deckedbuilder: no promos (takes database only from gatherer), the interface is really intuitive tho - windows only
MTG Studio: it's database contains all the cards from gatherer and (possibly) all of the promos, but it's a commercial software, possibly aimed at shops with large inventory? it's database at is seems is SQLite format, which is not really feasible for me to sync via dropbox, also i don't really trust non-text database for magic cards - windows only
MTG Album: it has a database with all the cards, it's also free. minor downside is, that it supports few import formats - windows only
Delver Lens: it's database has all the cards from magic. it would be the perfect app, but it's monthly subscription based, which i can understand, because it has a nice card scanner, but i would really rarely use that, and paying monthly fee just for an inventory application is not feasible for me
MTG Cards Info: only gatherer database
MTG Familiar: only gatherer database
MTG Frog: contains all the cards, but the application does not yet have an inventory feature, but may be added in a future update, according to it's menu
MTG Library: contains all the cards, but no inventory feature, only a favorites list
MTG Scanner/MTG Manager: contains all the cards, but i could not find any inventory feature, also it seems, that it's still in early stage, so that may be a future feature
MTG Unofficial: only gatherer database
MtgDeck: only gatherer database
so far it seems i'll be sticking with MTG Album for the PC and keep an eye on MTG Frog
thanks for reminding me.
i think i checked that one, but in the first round, i ignored wed-based collection managers.
on a sidenote there is also Deckbox.org, i used it a lot of times already for trading, it has a database with all the cards, but the export function has some problems, as some trivial sets are not recognized by other applications/sites
i like an inventory manager app, where i can syns the database via dropbox, so i don't risk the chance of losing the database if somehow the site goes down
