Before I list my enhancement request, I must say that of all the inventory applications I looked at or down-loaded and tested - yours is by far the best. Having the option of containers, look-ups, auto-fill, actions and more, really set you application above the rest -Thank you!
Have you considered adding barcoding reading to the application? I have several barcode scanners that I use with my Delicious Library application and there are a number of free (or not free) 2-D/QR barcoding readers for the iPhone and free printing applications on the web. It would be cool to be able to turn barcode scanning on (i.e. turn camera on) from the application to read the QR (or other) barcode on an item or container and have the MyStuff application bring me to that item or container. Most of the QR readers I've seen let the user pre-select the desired action (open URL, SMS, Call, Email, Contact, Map, etc.), in this case it might be updating a selected field to an autofill. For example, I've created a 'Shipping Status' field that uses the 'status' lookup (unpacked, packed, shipped, received, missing) and if I was at the Post Office shipping the containers, I might want to scan the boxes with the action of setting the item to "Shipped" or if I was receiving a number of containers or a DVD I lent out, I might want the scan action to set the "Status" to "Received" or "Returned". I mention the QR barcodes because the iPhone can read them and they can hold a lot of information:
QR Code data capacity (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QR_Code
Numeric only Max. 7,089 characters
Alphanumeric Max. 4,296 characters
Binary (8 bits) Max. 2,953 bytes
A few of many iPhone QR examples on youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9pB-i0xQKs&feature=relatedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihdn8XDWebE&feature=related
I have 4 QR readers on my iPhone but one works much better and even auto takes the photo/scan when the QR code is in focus (vs manually clicking the photo button once you think you have the barcode in the box).
Thanks again for a very cool and extremely useful application,
