What you need to know

  • GameTrack just received a big version 3.0 update.
  • Gamers can now create custom lists, including ranked lists.
  • A new iPad layout, grouped wish lists, and more arrive in this update.

If you're anything like me you've got more games than you can name and half of them are 37% complete. But knowing that isn't easy, and nobody wants to use a spreadsheet, right? If there's one way to make gaming not fun, it's to add a spreadsheet to proceedings. But a cool app like GameTrack? That's a different kettle of fish and it just received a big version 3.0 update.

GameTrack has long been a great way to list the games you own and the games you want, but this version 3.0 update is better than ever. Data is still pulled from the IGDB, along with screenshots and whatnot, but things have been taken to the next level.

As an example of that, GameTrak can now pull your game data straight from PSN and Xbox Live, saving you the hassle of adding games manually. You can see your trophy and achievement process as well!

Available as an iPhone and iPad app, the latter has a new three-column layout and those who like the ultimate in customization can now create custom lists, including some that are ranked.

Introducing the biggest GameTrack update ever! This is a complete, from the ground up, remake, including a new design, new icons, new features and a new GameTrack account!
