Numismatic Apps for mobile phones

#1 Unread post by Daniel » Mon Apr 12, 2010 5:04 pm

I would like for everyone to post a link to any numismatic related apps that you have found or use. Please tell us your opinion of the app from 1-5 stars. Here's an ebay app that I use to check my auctions via my Droid Ebay Mobile

I give this app 4.5 stars, and they offer this app for other phones as well.

Here are all the Mobile apps I was able to find available for Android and Apple. I have an older iTouch which does not support a lot of the Apple apps ...or they were more than they seemed worth by the reviews so I only tried a few ... but looked into them all. I noted the ones I have not tried. Android really had nothing until 'U.S. Coin Identifier' was released yesterday. :thumbsup:

Coin Apps for Android:
• Coin Collecting Glossary ($.99): http://www.androlib.com/android.applica ... -Cmqq.aspx
• U.S. Coin Identifier ($1.99): http://www.androlib.com/android.applica ... -FzEp.aspx

US Coins for iPhone (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/us-coin ... 22573?mt=8)
US Coins for Mac (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/us-coin ... 1359?mt=12)

Both of these App's work with the same data, sharing the data through Cloud based storage for the coin collection. I enter coins using the Mac version, then Backup to the Cloud, switch to my iPhone, Restore from the Cloud and then snap photos of my coins using my iPhone. It's very handy being able to have my collection with me on any Apple device.

This is an old list so I have no idea if all these apps still exists or not.

There's an android one I use, Fancy Cash. Simple and helps flag potentially interesting notes for further research.

I also am looking for other apps as well. I posted on a couple of other boards but it seems either people don't use apps/software or they are reluctant to reveal what they use like it is some kind of magical secret, so I appreciate this thread!!!!
