Media Collection Management Software Explorer Plus

31 Gen/10

Explorer Plus sounds like a replacement for Windows Explorer but it is in fact a media collection management software that makes use of Amazon’s vast inventory to offer a semi-automated process of adding collection items to the software’s database.

The program needs to be run with administrative privileges, at least under Windows 7, as the data cannot be saved otherwise. But that is the only complication that users will encounter with this collection management software.

Explorer Plus provides the four media categories books, movies, music and games each with their own database. Each category is divided into descriptors like author, category and publisher for books or category, manufacturer and platform for games.

The program provides the option to either add items manually to a collection or to perform an online search to find the product. The online search uses keywords, e.g. Team Fortress 2, The Art of Seo or Bioware, to find the items in Amazon’s inventory.

Each matching item will be displayed in a listing with the option to use the information from the selected items to fill out the new item form in the program. The selection can be problematic at times for items that exist multiple times, think of games that have been published for multiple systems. The program will only list the title, manufacturer and asin in the listing.

The data will be added to the form giving the user the option to edit if necessary. A click on the Save link will add the item to the collection-

The program comes with a separate bulk importer which can be used to import multiple items at once to the collection. The importer works similar to the online search option in the main program with the difference that multiple result items can be selected.

Explorer Plus is in an early development stage and it would be nice if the developer would sort out the identification problem in the online search results listing.

The program is available for download at the program’s Codeplex page
