  • Excellent for Book Organization

    By Abcd28!
    Very functional, flexible and versatile. Thank you for making such a helpful app. Thank you for the recent update! Very helpful/functional. I would love to see an app like this for recipes. Something simple and straightforward to organize my favorite recipes no matter where I get them from. UPDATE: Still loving this app over a year later!
  • Great

    By Sryan223
    This app is amazing. Would definitely recommend to anyone with a big home library. This app has already saved me a few time from buying a duplicate book. My only complaint about this app is that you can’t sort by authors last name, and that there isn’t an android version.
  • Extremely helpful. Only a few minor complaints.

    I used to use a spreadsheet in Dropbox to keep track of my book collection, but that only works when I remember to update it when I get something, which I couldn’t do from my phone while shopping. After ending up with some duplicates I went looking for an app to keep better track of my collection, and found this one. PRO: 1. I really like being able to use my own pictures for certain books, or search online. It’s helpful when you have an older edition or one that’s been released with different covers. 2. You’re not stuck with whatever title or description it gives you when you scan or otherwise add a book to the collection. If something doesn’t look right, you can change anything that comes up to make it accurate to what you have. CON: 1. Chances are if you need an app to keep track of your collection, you probably have a LOT of books. If you want to enter more than 50, that’ll be $5 to unlock. It seems a bit pricey for what it is. 2. The interface could use some streamlining. It’s something of a chore to correct mistakes or manually add information. There’s no mass edit function, so to have to individually add books to categories or series. (It’s incredibly tedious when you have two shelves of Star Wars books that you want to organize by series and canon status.) 3. The scanner doesn’t work roughly 75% of the time. It mostly seems to have trouble figuring out older books, but directly entering the ISBN found the right one more often than not. On the rare occasion THAT failed, it’s easy to search for the book and add it to your collection. Overall it’s great and handy to have to refer to whenever I come across something and I don’t know if I already have it.
  • Great app

    By Kingssix
    This app is fantastic! I love that it keeps track of everything that I have and have loaned out! The only complaint I have is that you have to pay if you have not than 50 books in your library, other than that I love it!

    Limited number of books in the free version! Limited fields that can be changed
  • So excited for the possibilities!

    By Jlshimab
    I work in an elementary school and I have a pretty big collection of children’s books. When I learned about this app, I tried the free version and was very impressed! It was easy to scan multiple books at a time. I wish it were a little easier to add/erase tags. I know once I get my books cataloged, this will be such a huge time saver!
  • Love this app!!!

    By Bb4349
    This app is so easy to use. The best part is that it can be linked over multiple devices. Would recommend for anyone with their own personal library.
  • Exporting

    I love the app. But I am unable to export through email. Also is there account type thing you can make so if you delete the app on accident or get a new phone your books stay in it?
  • Very good

    By Reviewer 70
    Tracks books in all your formats. Would be a 5 but the search does not always find what is saved.
  • Just What I Needed

    By GreenVariety
    Very pleased, only thing that would make it better would be batch editing and if it populated from and synced with Goodreads.
