Comic Book Collecting Checklist?

Sorry this has nothing to do with George Perez, but I’m hoping some of you can help me out with suggestions.  I’m looking for an app on Android or iOS (preferably on Android) that will keep track of my comic books. Like some of you, I own a lot of comics and will occasionally buy duplicates, because I have poor memory. I’ve solved my DVD/Blu-Ray problem by using a $5 paid app called DVD Profiler that helped me many times.

As for the comic book checklist application, I’ve already tried out some trials / demos, but none of them are any good. I’ve refused to pay, especially if I’m not sure if it is going to be any good.  Right now I’m using Comic Geeks free app (see image), which is great for new comics... but kind of sucks at older comic books.

What I’m looking for:
  • Ad-free, willing to pay but not more than $5
  • Large database, from current to older titles
  • Ability to change cover artwork (especially if their database doesn’t have art)
  • Preferably to photo scan in the barcode, but also would like to search by titles (legacy comics doesn’t have barcodes)
  • Would like to see writers and artists credited
Please email me or comment in public and I will try out your suggestions. Thank you for your help.
