  • Not good for long term.

    Can’t log on. Haven’t been able to for over a week. Changing password does not work. The app was good. I don’t what happened.
  • Wonderful App!

  • Great app, but needs some tweaks

    By Jedi Mike
    This is an excellent and easy-to-use app for cataloguing one’s library. The scan works well, and I like that the app recognizes that certain barcodes may not be unique to a particular book (as sometimes happens with mass-market paperbacks) and will warn you before just “guessing “ a title. Scanning is generally quick as well, as is the manual search by ISBN function (for items that don’t have a barcode). One cool feature I haven’t seen elsewhere (at least on a mobile library catalogue / database app) is the ability to add a back cover image in addition to the front cover image. It’s not an essential feature for every item or for every user, but it’s still great to have the option. There are a couple of quirks that could stand some improvement, however. If you scan a book in the app’s database that has an author listed with a middle initial, the app will sometimes think the middle initial is part of the author’s last name, which screws up alphabetical sorts by author. Yes, you can go in and fix this manually, but it’s a bit of an annoyance that one needs to do that— the program should recognize automatically that an initial with a period after it belongs within the “first name” field, not the “last name” field. Another quirk is that although multiple authors can be listed for an item, only a single editor can be listed in the “editor” field (unless you list them in the author field instead). A minor annoyance… but still unnecessary. Another oddity: although there is a field for publication date, it is impossible to enter only a year of publication without designating a month and day as well. That’s fine if one knows the actual date a book was published, but usually only the year appears on the copyright page, and since the original publication date isn’t in the database entry for any books I’ve scanned so far, I either have to falsify/ guess a book’s day & month of publication or I have to leave any date at all out of the item’s record. I’d like to be able to put in JUST the year! A few missing fields that would make the app better for me are: purchase / retail price, current value, Library of Congress catalog number, & current location of item. I have no objection to entering this info manually for the relevant item(s)— I just want a field in which to put the info! I hope the developer will incorporate some of the improvements or fixes I mentioned above because the “full version” app is not exactly inexpensive at $9.99— and at that price the quirks / annoyances really need to be fixed for the app to deserve a 5-Star rating. Nonetheless, this app is a worthwhile purchase, especially if you have a large collection you wish to catalogue and you want to have the info readily available on your mobile device.
  • Ugh

    By Hooch93
    I was so excited to have this app! Downloaded it an immediately started scanning. After scanning 9 books, it wanted me to pay for the pro just to scan more! $10 for the pro! No thanks! Maybe $2.99 at max I’d buy it but not $10. I’d much rather just hand write everything if that’s the case (and i have well over 600 books)
  • No Help

    By Hutchsreview
    The app advertised help with uploading a prior booklist in CVS format. No one ever writes back other than an automated response.
  • Not free unless you only want to save 11 book

    By LisaLisMom2016
    Don't let the "free" get you. 11 books and you are done unless you pay. I will just continue to use my Librarything account and Good Reads

    It helps me keep up with everything and I need all the help haha. I’ve only ran into two purchases that weren’t in their data banks but out of 300 that’s not bad
  • Unfortunate Execution

    By kickedthestairs
    Please don’t waste $10 on this. I’m very disappointed in my upgraded purchase. The app had trouble finding valid ISBNs, added wrong items to my collection on a constant basis when using the Bulk Camera Scan function, and required a large amount of manual data entry. The search function within the app is useless, and the website is even worse. I’ve written to request a refund as I gave up on it after a couple of hours and 120 books.
  • App is useless unless you want to pay $10

    By kaiser197
    The idea of this app is great. Was basically hoping to organize a list of a very large number of books my company has been keeping in storage, and scanning the ISBNs is an efficient and reliable way to do that. However, after about a dozen scans, the app forces you to pay for the "full" version, though you can continue to add the ISBNs manually. Adding any book to your "list" requires at minimum a title, author and photo of the front cover. So I was taking a lot of photos on top of having to manually add the ISBNs, and constantly adding data. However, once you've added a book, you cannot go back to edit any of the information unless you pay the $10 for the "full" version (and some of the information the app provides for a book is incorrect.) Overall was expecting a much more intelligent and efficient app for this purpose; and the $10 is just a bit too steep a price to pay.
