Is it getting to the point where your amiibo collection is becoming a little unwieldy?

If these are the sorts of problems you are starting to deal with, then it may be time to consider a tracking app. Tracking apps can make the life of a collector so much easier. You can view your entire collection, want lists, values, and more.

Colliibo is the amiibo tracking app that we found to be best overall. It has just about everything you could want out of a collection-tracking app and it's designed specifically for amiibo collectors. There are plenty of other apps out there that are designed for multiple collections but this one is just for amiibo fans.
The interface is intuitive and easy to get a grip on quickly. It gets regular updates so you can be sure that the information you are seeing is current. It's incredibly simple to add your amiibo to your collection and they are all sorted by series. They recently added Animal Crossing Card support, in addition to a compatibility tool, so you can see which games your amiibo work with.
Another thing we love about the app is its whimsical and colorful design. Sometimes apps with a cartoon visual style can sacrifice user experience for the goofy visuals. This is not true with Coliibo. It is fun and colorful while still maintain a solid and approachable user interface.
The great news is that Colliibo is available for both Android and iPhone users, although in the Google Play Store it can be found under the name Collector – amiibo edition.
Hopefully this app will help keep your amiibo collection organized. While you are out in the world, you can always have a digital record of your collection that you can reference or even show off to your friends. Happy amiibo hunting!

It has a comprehensive record keeping system that helps you keep track of what games you have and its accessories (example: manuals, boxes, special cables). What condition these are in - if they're sealed, open or that you only have the table.You can also track it by price, so if you bought it at a particular price point, you could keep an eye on how much these items will be valued in later years. These are all details available to log. What's even more impressive is that it has an export feature which allows you to export it as a list or a spreadsheet so you can have backups whenever you need them.
The things that make unique is that this tool is community driven, users will regularly keep the databases up to date so you'll always find the right entries at the right time.
