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,

Version 1.4 is finished: What's new:

That's it, more or less. If you have any request, comment or idea please do not hesitate to drop a line or two here. Thank you for your comments, support and app ratings on PlayStore / AppStore.
