Mobile Applications Support

IMPORTANT NOTE TO USERS OF OUR MOBILE APPLICATIONS - We have recently discontinued support for the original Collector's Assistant Mobile on the iPhone/iPad. The business limitations imposed by the app store, price expectations, and lack of adequate iCloud support for database apps makes offering a standalone coin inventory program impractical. As a result our iOS offerings will be limited to viewing only. We have released a new product Collector's Assistant Mobile Viewer which provides an enhanced viewing experience alowing you to view coin collection data on an iPad or iPhone which has been transferred from a desktop version of Collector's Assistant. Also as we are not made aware of customers purchasing at the app store we have no way of reaching out to you for feedback unless you contact us. Please email us at so that we can respond to your needs.

Technical support for our mobile applications is provided via e-mail and this website. If calling our tech support phone number, please leave an e-mail address for our response.

This website provides additional information about issues you may encounter and how to resolve them as well as additional user instruction

User Instructions - Importing data from a Windows PC or Mac OS/X version of Collector's Assistant

Users of Collector's Assistant MobileViewer have their primary coin data stored on a PC version of Collector's Assistant and wish to use their iOS device for viewing their data. This requires transfer of the current collection data to the iOS device, which is accomplished via emailing a csv file.

Transferring data to the iOS device. The Collector's Assistant Version 10 (Service Pack 2) and above have a function on its menu (Mobile Synchronization->Export All Collection to CA Mac and CA Mobile 1.0.3) - this generates a file c:\CollectorAssistant\Transfer\CAAllCollectionsFromWindows.csv. This file must be eMailed to your email address using the account that is enabled on your iOS device. Once the file has been mailed, you use the Mail app on your device to open the mail and after downloading the attached file, hover on it and a list of apps that can accept it will be presented. Touch the CA Mobile Viewer app which will transfer the file to CA Mobile Viewer and open CA Mobile Viewer. 

To complete the transfer:

  • Touch Import Collections on the right controls section
  • Touch Import All Collections  (the button will change color until  the operation is complete


Detailed instructions are avaialble with iillstrations in the manual for which a link is provided at the top of this email.
