Whenever I checked to read the comments to gain a better insight into what this program did I found absolutely no comments (16 hours into the start of the 'day'). I thought no-one was interested in it or couldn't work out what it was for, so I decided not to bother.

Now, the day after, I find all the comments. Why, like several others, was I not able to see any of the comments?

Installed easily on XP. I really like this giveaway! It works flawlessly and easy to use and easy to customize! Great interface just the program I've been looking for! I was really disappointed I couldn't get it to work with Ubuntu/Wine though as I've switched all my other computers to Ubuntu. I'm thinking it's the registration process that fowled it up, or not... So question for developer Will your Pro version work with Ubuntu/Wine?

Wow... i feel like the only kid in the playground. Less than 2 hours to go and NO comments. So i should leave it be... but, then the vendor would get very little feedback. Not that my meager remark will be of much help. This looks like a nice product - that in the past (as i recall) mainly got flagged because of the name (LignUp vs LineUp (go figure)).

Even though i downloaded it March 2012, i really have not used it (not all of us have the time needed to test everything offered and downloaded) So.. Sadly, the only thing i can offer is that unless they have offered this since then (and i missed it) it has JUMPED quite a few version numbers... from 2.7.8 (3/12) to 5.1.5 (12/13) without any intervening offerings. (IOW - i would have expected a larger list of improvements...)

Well, regards to all of those for the holidays, (including the GOTD team),

How can they claim it costs $29.95 when they have it for sale on their website for $9.95?

Like so many of these cataloging programmes, they really do not cater for most collections, just the very common ones. I'm still looking for somerthing useful that can handle plant collections and this isn't it!

Thanks to LignUp + GOTD.
Tested it.

Quite good.
I think this is a flat field database; as opposed to a relational database.

The database design + formatting grunge work has been done for you in Lign Multi-Collector.

(Those who like old style from the ground up relational databases can still use DBase 2 with its dot prompt to Dbase 5. Ashton Tate's Dbase 2 was tremendously powerful and could be used on a vintage Apple 2 PC with a PC/M card.)

The Help section of Lign Multi-Collector is missing a very important part.
It does not immediately tell user - how to add new item to the database.
I had to find out on my own. This is done by clicking the big green Plus icon on the bottom left corner.

The software has pre-made templates for typical collection databases.
e.g. watches, wine, etc...

You can create your own templates, of course.
Has a flexible user interface that you can re-arrange columns and sort on any column.
Allows an image accompanying the item that you record. This is very important for any collector.
As with any database, has an important backup function.
You can redesign the card to your custom preference.

***If you plan to use it a lot, you better buy the software. Because if after you had invested 3,000 man-hours inputting database items, a PC glitch can wipe out the software (your data is still intact but cannot be accessed). You cannot re-install the software because GOTD one day expiry is over.***

It is fun.

But because I did not buy the software, I will stick to a simple Microsoft Excel worksheet as a flat field database. I had Microsoft Access for more than a decade but find it a pain to use. Excel is much more intuitive with its built-in row and column layout.

I actually bought File Maker but never bothered to use it, preferring instead to use the highly user customisable Excel worksheet as a database.

If I had a Mac, I would prefer to buy an easy to use database like Bento (discontinued since 30 September 2013 by the software developer, in favour of FileMaker Pro)

The most important aspects of any database are Control and Reliability.

Hmmm - I think it's strange that @ 8:55 PM there are no comments??? Anyway, I'm hoping to be able to use this to kee track of items other than "collectables," so I downloaded and installed.

Install was easy enough, although in the regustration process they do ask for your name and email (no biggie for me). I'm still going through the program and trying to figure it out. It does look like the help file is very good - opens to online video files that have a video walk-through.

On their web site they offer a free, standard, and pro edition, although I'm not sure which version this is.

Haven't tried anything else yet, but so far so good.

Seems to be a fair program so far.

This program appears to keep track of things mainly by pictures of them. It's probably not practical for a record or video collection but it could be useful for other things, particularly for the hoarder who has so much in their collection they forget what they have.

It doesn't appear to have any import or export features.

Program doesn't seem to change in any way to indicate that it has been registered. It will let you go through the registration process over and over without ever saying that the product was already registered. This means it's possible that after the trial period ends the program will stop working. I've never come across a program that was set-up like this and I don't really feel that it's safe to take the time to create a database and enter data if there is no way to verify that you are actually using a registered version of the program that won't stop working rather than the trial version. Otherwise this appears to be a fairly straightforward database program that allows you to download templates for common types of collectibles or create your own custom template. The sample entries show pictures for the items that were downloaded from the internet but I don't know where the database is getting these images from or how often it is likely to provide images when you enter new items. I would be careful with this one because you might spend a lot of time creating a database for your collectibles and then find that you need to buy a license in order to continue using it.

Installed and registered without Problems on a Win 8.1 64 Bit System.

Easy to handle and simple Front End to a simple database. You can whatever define, what you want and create your own templates.

A disadvantage for this database entry system is, that you cannot create plausibility in your entry, you cannot define ranges (input price from 1 to 99$, if buying date was 2.2.2014, the entry date cannot have been 1.5.2002. The plausibility in the data entry system or more complex dependencies make database systems strong and usefull.

On the other hand it really is a cheap system in any sense.

A good start for a beginner in defining an own collection of e.g. Hummel Figures....

WOW ! What a great program for people with collections who like to be organized. There is a wonderful demo video available to show people all of the many options available for being specific to that particular collection. Tons of options. It is a big job to get a collection properly organized and into a data base, but this program will give one all of the tools they could possibly want for the purpose. Definitely a keeper for me ! Thank you lineup.com, and GAOTD, and a merry Christmas to all !!

I e-mailed the company and they responded almost immediately. The discussion board they have on their web site DOES work, I needed to switch browsers. This is probably the fault of my browser add-ons as I do have problems occasionally.

I was told via the e-mail that they are a team of developers all over the world and that the English site is the only one they have. They do have a Facebook page so that is one place to look for comments/reviews from people.

If you look at their discussions, when customers request a template or other feature, they get it done almost immediately.

Overall, I don't understand the negative thumbs down rating. It's a good looking program with many customizable features and the customer service appears very good.

System: HP Pavilion / Windows 8.0 / fast AMD multi-core processor, AMD graphics Program installed flawlessly with no nagging registration hassles at all. You can register it under your own name/email in seconds without having to wait for confirmation emails or double-opt-in confirmations using the simple code in the READ-ME.

This (for me) will be a very useful program for cataloging things. I really like the thoughtful assortment of pre-made templates that get you started. True, you could do all this with spreadsheets or other programs, but this is MUCH simpler way to do it. Myself, I'd rather have the time savings of not having to do all of this manually.

On install it loaded a video tutorial on install which made it very easy to understand how to use the program. Not just some 2-minute quickie, either - the video was almost 14 minutes and very good. Thanks so much LignUp and GOTD for sharing this program. Its a welcome addition to my Toolbox.. :)

Downloaded, installed and ran flawlessly.
Then I asked myself - what did I want this for?

AS far I can see - everything looked good, I just don't at this point in time, see the necessity for re-creating a different database for 4000 items that I've already got catalogues.

If you were just starting out with a new collection, of haven't catalogued an existing collection, then this one might do the trick, I haven't invested enough time in it to make an y criticisms.

Thank you GOTD and Thank You LignUp for the offer.

I think I must be missing something obvious, but how does it register? I have entered the serial from the readme file at least twenty times and then another box comes up asking for name and email, although it doesn't seem to make a difference whether I put those in or not - it doesn't DO anything. It doesn't go any further, and it still has the little box at the bottom right corner that says Demo - Upgrade to Full. Closing and reopening the program doesn't help either. Any suggestions? Thank you.

I believe this was given away a few years ago. I had it on my machine and haven't used it. I don't know why as it looks fairly nice. Anyway, I've installed this version. This company does give away a free version of their software. This is the "standard" version and will do just fine for most people. They are also running a special price today.

Three times, when trying to use this, the program froze and I had to go through the task manager to kill it. To be fair, my computer is a bit old and strained, but this may be why I never got around to using the software from the previous give away.

The interface looks very nice and professional. As soon as the program opens it checks for updates and there is a button for "Add-ons" but I haven't really found anything to add onto it except templates. You can create your own database or use one of theirs. They have a templates for the standard: books, software, etc. but no template for movies.

The site has links to user discussion forums, but when following the links, there are no discussions AT ALL. On the site they have a link to "other catalogs" and when I saw the titles ("Underwater Museum", "World's 10 most expensive dresses")I thought these would be downloadable databases with pictures for these collections. The museum ones interested me because I thought it would be an interesting way to see highlights from museums I will never get a chance to visit. What they linked to was basically an article and nothing more. Under support, there is not much for the software, but an entire page of general computer tips & tricks ("choosing the right mouse").

English is obviously not their first language, but the site is hosted on American servers. Visiting a "partner" site (delcampe.com) shows that to come from Belgium. They don't have any contact info or company info listed except a single e-mail address. I'm just saying this site looks rough, but it may be because they concentrate on their main site where ever they are located. Obviously, the software is updated, since my older version is 2.5 and this is 5.1.5

Sooo, is it worth it? I don't know. I wish I could find the main forums page but without knowing the name of this software in its native country, there is no way to find it. However, the general feel and look of the program is very nice.

I've not used inventory software before, but recently thought about doing an inventory of my home Firearms for insurance purposes. Installation on my Windows 7 64-bit PC was without incident, and registration went well also. Added a database using a Firearms template, and the first thing I noticed, was that they weren't using the NRA grading scale. Fortunately, they allow you not only to create custom fields, but modify existing ones so I modified their choices to my own, which was fast, and intuitive. Based on these quick tests, it looks like a solid product, that could be a reasonable choice for others who want a flexible, and reasonably inexpensive inventory product. As always, your mileage may vary.

On watching the video, this looks like it's very, very good! Highly customisable, good GUI, it seems more flexible to the other, similar softwares that I've encountered.
Might be worth buying, the offers, today, are generous.

Downloaded and installed on Win 7 64bit. Altho I already have a cataloger program this one allows me the ability to post pictures and assign value to each item I have. I deal alot with rare coins and old antique items I find and this program is great because I can now put all of my collectibles in one program. I give it a 5 out of 5 for functionality and ease of use.

As a hoarder of templates (for web design) and images/"textures" my whimsical approach to naming folders and storing graphics or notes in temp desktop folders means I'm always putting off til tomorrow with the end result being 2, 3 or 14 folders, 1 on the desktop, one in pictures, others elsewhere with similar titles and often some duplicate textures. Color me scattered.
LignUp installed okay on Visat-64. Register claimed it was successful but the ABOUT doesn't display GOTD and while the Help pop up shows the key the next popup doesn't display the name and email I entered so I can't be sure I'm really registered.
This appears to be a very flexible inventory control manager and image viewer but the GUI uses soft pastel colors and skinny fonts, nice to look at but between the tiny fonts and low contrast font colors, too difficult to read on my wide screen monitor. e.g., white text on light grey background, or light blue text on white background. I don't see any way to change the (skin?) so my foundation is rubbing off on the monitor as I squint.
When browsing their many online templates, the skinny black font used against a white background is extremely difficult to read. My bad eyes are the problem, but I hope they consider that by changing the style sheet defaults.
The company web site seems new. I saw no way to join a forum, no entries under the discussion board. Didn't see an input field or way to join and start a topic. I certainly don't want to post something and discover my name and email address were pulled from registration and displayed instead of being able to use a pen name. I don't do Facebook if that's a requisite, I even block Facebook cookies.
IMHO, it has a lot of potential but I'd have trouble using it on a daily basis which is what I need.

Had to check this out....107 thumbs down vs 53 thumbs up and no comments!!
Downloaded and installed OK. Opened to find a nice clean interface to a fairly simple database. Simultaneously a webpage seemed to open with a introductory help video.
Entered GOTD reg key, name and email and......nothing happened!! Restarted program to see if that made a difference....nope, still Demo mode.
If it activates, then it seems ok as a freebie, but hardly worth the $29.95 regular price tag.

Can't imagine that this will appeal to many people -- you'd have to be a collector to bother to keep an inventory of all your stuff: It is SO much trouble. You'd end up spending all day entering all the things into the database, wondering if you'll ever really need it....

And then, when you're done, if for some reason the programme no longer works, or the database got corrupted, you'll realise you just wasted your time....

Or what if the company no longer exists or doesn't support the programme when you really need help?

Seems to me you might just as well use a document creation programme like Word or similar, and use the search facilities within that to find relevant stuff.

Well, it's not for me, anyway. Thanks, but no thanks.

Keep trying though....

Despite its current ridiculous and senseless LOW rating I found this GAOTD pretty GOOD and very handy as well.

In short it enables you to create a custom collection database in order to keep any items of yours organized into different and very well tagged categories, giving users the ability to add images and details about each item.

Supports webcam and graphic editing function, with the ability to password protect your database as well as search online information about a certain item (for instance a book or a movie).

It also sports a cool report generator hich can be easily about your collection which can be easily exported to PDF, Excel CSV and HTML format.

When you install it is necessary to give an e-mail address and your name for it to register, neither need to be valid.
When you open you are greeted by a program that appears to allow you to create databases of whatever takes your fancy.
The interface did not make it easy on my old eyes, fonts too small and not aided by the background colour choices.
For those who enjoy making lists of their collections of whatever, music, wine and books etc it could be a useful tool, personally I'd rather watch paint dry.
If you like making lists and keeping records it's right up your street, but it is not for me.

So is this the Standard, Pro, or Ultimate version? Their website gives a comparison of all these, plus the Free version, but nowhere does it tell us which version this is.
