I like it but it is buggy.
I like this app a lot but it has always been buggy. I had a problem with it replacing comic book covers with other comic book covers in my collection. The only solution was to erase both books and re-enter them. And if you had notes for a book, you had to re-type them in. The app still crashes repeatedly; sometimes four or five times in arrow. Since the last two updates, now it crashes when I try to upload my comic book covers to the cloud. Like I said, I like it but really it is very unreliable.
Good but with a few caveats
If you're cataloging older comics, this thing is invaluable. Also, the latest version makes uploading and downloading to/from a cloud back-up near instantaneous.
On the other hand, the barcode scanner can be hit or miss. It can take literally years for them to update covers and info for more recent books; not just small press but the Big 2, as well. Food for thought for a $15 app.
Getting comics documented
The initial set up was a bit obscure as I wanted to sync it with a PC version. Now it is pretty much scan, review, add, sync. I do some additional editing to record which box they're in and about 1 in 30 has to be adjusted but it's faster than doing it by hand.
