Default Key Collector App for your phone!

This is a handy, free tool you can use to look up KEY ISSUE information. No more trying to remember WHY that Hulk Annual #6 is important while staggering around long boxes in the back of the store, now you can quickly look up KEY ISSUE information. This is a vital tool to use, I highly suggest you download it to your iPhern or Anderd immediately.

The creator has gotten a lot of grief over this app but it's not his fault At least from what I saw. The app is a great tool he just underestimated the animousitjy between dealers and flippers. Education in the market is a constant battle.

Just for the record I don't like it either because it takes away my advantage I have had for years when going to shows.

one of several reasons flipping and hunting have gone by the wayside for me. Knowledge used to be a huge advantage. Now, all the hot news sites and blogs try to pump/dump and spec., and be a knowledge base, which is really the fun i used to have.

Prices have gotten out of hand due to the constant barrage of comic movies and such. Now, i am happy selling my books for large profits. My resulting graded grabs ....avengers 44, ff53, avengers 100, avengers ann 5, ff93, inhumans 1, cap america 138, ff special 1, detective #? 3rd harley, avengers 116, ff, moon knight 60, etc.

I think you guys are overreacting a bit hehe..
People still won't be able to keep track of all the info, even w/ an app for it and I'm betting most folks who use it will already be in the know.

It's cool. I DL'ed it and I've started to add some of my collection.
I noticed that the NM prices for some of the bigger Keys are a lil conservative/low.
I mostly like it for the want list function, but trying to keep that to my Top 10 wants.

The market has been pretty competitive even without app, but you can still find good books out there at shows not so much stores.

Some stores just don't care to look stuff up, unless it's gold/silver age superheroes -
especially second hand stores like Half Price books. Most of my major finds are at stores like that. I found I Kill Giants #1 and 2 yesterday for a $1 each there, plus #1 & 2 of Mouse Guard. My LCS still uses a printed price guide, so it takes them forever to be in touch with hot books.
