  • [Top ten] Great Categories

    I used the app to catalog my collection of approximately 500 books. It's definitely worth the 2 dollars. I would actually pay more, especially if the developers were willing to address some minor glitches (See below). The app is linked to the ISBN catalog and you can import info either via barcode scan or entering the ISBN. Older books don't have an ISBN number though, and the title/author look-up does not always work, so for those manual entry is best.

  • Tips for using the product

    I can't always remember which books I have already read and this app is great for that. The barcode scan works great and 99% of the time it finds the book. Manually entering a new book, which I have to do for ebooks, is ok except it never finds the cover anymore. It used to find the cover a lot but in this new version it never finds a cover when searching by title and author.
