    I was wondering if anyone knew about any apps in the app store that you can use to catalog what games you own, for say like the nintendo ds, and/or what up coming games you want?
    I have tried searching, but to no avail. I thought i saw one a while ago but i cant remeber the name.

    It's called Notepad. :p
    Just kidding. I also fancy something that could automatically log down what I downloaded, when, and for how much. Then allow 'reports' to be viewed like # downloads per month, $ per month which could help us budget our spending.
    But then again, this could only be done with direct authentication into YOUR App Store account (something Apple might consider as privacy violation), or by monitoring what's installed onto your iPhone (which cannot be done as apps are sandboxed).

    Any devs that could provide some insight into whether these barriers are surpassable?

    Edit: LOL!!! I guess I'm not the only one who thought that, haha! I'm getting old... can't get First Post anymore... :p

    Abut time to write one? Say, you manually enter the apps you have d/l and like Appsniper which get all the info from Apps Store. Tracking update would be, hey, causes "duplicates in current functionalities"...

    Just an idea.

    DVD Dashboard - $1.99 @ The AppStore

    You can use DVD Dashboard ($1.99 @ AppStore) to keep track of movies and video games. That's the app I've been using since it came out. It also gives you different Genres that can be apply to games, as well as Alphabetical Order. I will make a review about it, check my YouTube Channel: http://youtube.com/keybcoder for a lot of iPhone/iPod touch useful videos, games and apps reviews! See ya' and I hope you like it if you get it.

    Get a different app to track tracking app number 1, and use tracking app number 2 to track tracking app number 1. That way both tracking apps are being tracked by at least 1 tracker. :D

    Not apps, video games. Like for the DS, Wii, PSP, PS3. So I can share it with my friends at school.

    Thank you for actually understanding the question, unlike so many others, and thank you for the info. That's what I was looking for.

    Gotta love how some people can be when you just need a little help. There's another program called iOwn. It was on sale over the holidays for $2.99 but I don't know the cost now. You can inventory basically anything electronic you own. The nice thing about it is that you can get as detailed as you want regarding info for each item you enter and you can use your own images for each item whether you download them from google or use your iPhone camera.

    I tried pocketpedia but it was too basic. It also depends upon Amazon for item descriptions and images. I have a few games that didn't come up as a result of this. Haven't tried DVD dashboard yet, might have to look that one up.

    Or you could try Itemshelf. It's free and works well! I use it to keep track of my VAST library of books.

    If you've got a Mac you need to sync Pocketpedia with the DVDpedia app and it's very comprehensive:) - $18
