Mobile Application: My Fountain Pens (Ios & Android)


Anes

Recommended Posts

I don't know why, but thread about my mobile application "My fountain pens" was deleted. Let's try again:


This app lets you manage your fountain pen collection. Data fields: Manufacturer, Model, Color, Filling system, Year of production, Pen length, Nib material, Nib size, Nib stroke, Personal rating, Description, Notes, Images, buy & sell info: name, date, price, notes


Mandatory fields for pen data: manufacturer, model and filling system. Everything else is up to you.


Make backup (XLSX format) and share file via Dropbox, Google drive... Use Microsoft Excel or Apple Numbers to edit backup file, then import backup data on one or several devices.



You can find app here (Android) and here (iPhone):

I've been using your app since shortly after you originally released it. Very straight forward and easy to use, I definitely like it and would recommend others to try it out.

It's time to implement ink data and I need your help with data fields:

- Manufacturer
- ink name
- color description
- package (bottle, cartridge)
- Notes
If you have anything else to add, please give me some feedback.
Thank you,
Anes

Characteristics like sheen, shading, glitter?

Dry vs wet?

 

 

The type of ink like dye based, pigment based, iron gall.

 

Is it water/chemical resistant? yes or no

 

Thank you for your inputs and thoughts, homework in progress:

Could you please add the newest colors of the Montverde Regatta Sport? It's missing Abalone and I know Mother Of Pearl just came out or is Coming out.

Theoretically, for making the backup you must have:

 

- write permissions

- enough memory

 

Practically: I am going to release a new Android version in a week (or two), with more details in error messages. Hope this will solve the mystery.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

    • A Smug Dill
      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
