Warrybook 2.1 Review

Track all of your warranties in a single app with this useful mobile tool.

There are two types of people in the world -- those who keep all their old warranty receipts stored in one place and those who couldn't find those old receipts for all the replacements in the world. That's why an app like Warrybook is so enticing. Promising a solution for lost or expired warranties, WarryBook digitizes the warranty and receipt tracking process for your big purchases right on your phone.

The app's interface is crowded with nine buttons on the home page. However, as you dig deeper, you'll find that it is anything but cluttered. While the basic functions are nothing new -- photograph your receipts and save them to your Photo Library -- the other functions are. Once you photograph a receipt, you can set an expiration date and category, add a title, and make notes. The fields may take some time to fill out, but the organization of warranty receipts by age and category is helpful in many ways. The app requires an online registration where photos are presumably stored for cloud access and load times are fairly slow, which is cumbersome because there is no real reason for mandatory cloud storage, but being able to access them on another device is a nice touch.

Warrybook is a very good idea in an underdeveloped package. The features are useful and the ability to review and find old warranty receipts on your phone is incredibly well thought out, but the app itself and the site to which it connects could use some work. With a cleaner interface, faster communication, and an option to not register for the online service, this could be an incredibly useful app for almost any homeowner.
