5 Free Home Inventory Apps for Android:

This app packs all the features you expect in a home inventory app. In this app, you can add items with the item name, function, description, and photo. You can create categories within categories to create a well-sorted and organized inventory like Clothing -> Accessories -> Decorative Accessories.
In case, you have a large inventory collection, you can create custom sections in the inventory to easily sort out all the items. By default, the inventory contains the following sections and you can add more custom sections as well:
- Properties: Organize items by property/location like home, office, etc.
- Rooms: Lists of all the rooms with the inventory stored there.
- Lists: Create a list of inventory for trips and travels.
- Recents: Lists all the recently added items.
This app has a feature that creates a sunburst diagram of your inventory. The sunburst diagram visualizes all your inventory items on a pie chart (as shown in the screenshot above). You can create a sunburst diagram for any category, room, section, or items. To keep all your inventory data safe, this app lets you take a backup of the data to the phone storage. So, in case of any mishappening, you can import your data back to the app.
My Stuff Organizer
My Stuff Organizer is another free home inventory app for Android. This app has a more simple approach to organize home inventory with a modern design. Unlike having separate sections covering the same item again (like in the Magic Home Inventory), this app helps you organize all similar items under the same category.

For each item, you can add a name, description, price tag, warranty. and tags. This app calculates the remaining warranty periods on your items and shows that in the collection along with the price. It also gives you notifications to remind you of the items which are about to run out of warranty. On top of that, you can anytime take a backup of your data for safekeeping and restore it within a few clicks whenever needed.

Apart from manually adding items to the inventory, you can use barcodes and QR codes. You can simply scan the code of the item and add it to your inventory by typing details.
