Sortly, currently featured by Apple, just released version 5 of itself. The moving and inventory app added the ability to create videos and QR labels as part of their new release to make moving even more simple and seamless for users.
The video feature allows users to fabricate a 15 second video to document their items and easily remember where they have stored them. The brand new design offered by Sortly’s newest version has speed and ease of use as its main focus, allowing users to add a new item with just 2 taps.
Included in the new release is the ability to add QR labels to your items and boxes to quickly scan and search for their location. Not a bad deal for something that only costs $.99 per month or $9.99 for the entire year.
But if you only move once every five years or do not plan on moving for a long time again, is this extra cost worth it? Well, it could be. It is hard to find out about whether or not there is a cancellation fee. This information should be point blank but it is not, that is a little annoying. You can also purchase a lifetime package for $39.99 but why would do that, unless you are a professional mover or if you plan on moving every other year which is a total and complete pain. Your call though!
You could sign up for the $.99 monthly fee, use it once, then attempt to cancel your subscription. If you pay a cancellation fee for a few dollars then so be it.
In addition to that and moreover, users will be able to track their items with locations, photos, notes and tags, and creating visual records of every item they own, all of which are designed to make moving a breeze and save precious time when unpacking.
Sortly also assists in household management, wherein users may create records of their valuable items for insurance purposes, organize their stuff when they are packing for their next trip, and keep track of details when they are car shopping or house hunting.
While many seem to be shouting from the rooftops about the advantages of using Sortly, the only major disappointment comes in the form of not being able to use the automatic backup feature, which allows users to sync to multiple devices, unless they sign up to Sortly Premium Cloud.
