What's New in Version 7.5.4
iOS 9 improvements
I love this app but..
I love this app. It's fun and simple to use but it's a little harder to upload books then it seems. The process is easy but I have found that few if any of my books scan in using the isbn scanner, even with books that have come out in the last few years. I'd guess less then 1 in 30. So instead of a few hours to scan in my ~800 book collection I'll be at least a month manually looking up each book. 1/3 of it isn't the apps fault, some stores like to put their price tags over the isbn and it's quicker to enter the books using the online look up feature (which is nice and kind of interesting) then peeling off the tag especially with the low probability of the scan working. I am greatly enjoying this app and would recommend it but would definitely let them know to expect it to take QUITE awhile to get their collection in.
It takes me between one and two minutes to get each book in, but I do nit pick at them a bit. I enter series information and check the picture to match it to my book cover and confirm that I have the same publisher. It be quicker if I just did the basics.
Amazing Customer Support
My wife has been using this app for a couple of years and it really helps her keep track of the many books in her collection. When her iPhone was stolen, we had an issue getting her book database back onto her new phone. The customer support that I got from the developer was beyond excellent with email responses the fastest I've ever seen from anyone. Thanks to their rapid response, my wife has her data back and couldn't be happier. Thanks for an amazing customer experience.
I do love having all of my books documented so I don't accidentally buy one I already have, but getting them into the system has been way more time consuming than it seems. About half of my books don't register anything from the barcode scanner, so I end up manually putting it in. Since I have a kindergarten classroom of hundreds of books, it's taking forever. I do like that you have the option to do an online search for a book instead of typing all the info in.
