Sofa has long been a great way to organize everything from your games to your books, but now it's better than ever after the version 2.13 update added support for apps, audiobooks, and even board games. That last one also represents the first time an analog activity has come to the app.

Already supporting books, movies, TV shows, podcasts, music albums, and video games, the new additions round out the majority of ways people will spend their downtime. Now that everything can be tracked inside one app you won't be dipping into other apps or emailing yourself links just to remember that awesome app or board game you heard about.
