My homegrown kluge google setup to keep track of models, their info, sizes, etc and when we shot together crashed and burned.

Anyone have any suggestions? I’m an Apple Fanboy so ideally it would work on MAC and IOS devices.

...if you've got the budget have a look at Filemaker.

I use it on a PC, but it was originally designed for the Mac and probably works better on the Mac, and Filemaker Go works on all IOS devices.

Its a relational database: so its very good at managing your data, but you have to set it up first. Fortunately that's relatively easy to do once you get your head around how relational databases work, and it is very very easy to make the "front end" look nice. Its completely customizable, so you can include whatever fields you like, you can create a model release that they can sign on location and snap their picture, and then email them a copy. But as I mentioned you have to set all this up first.

(Disclaimer, I've built my own filemaker database to run my business, and have been a happy filemaker user for nearly 8 years, but I haven't been paid to say this, bla bla)
