What's New in Version 2.3.7
This update we've decided to take a good, hard look at how you get ebooks and audiobooks through the app, and streamline that process. To that end:
• See which books are available as ebooks/audiobooks without having to tap the book cover to see book details.
• Skip the barcode scanner! If you hit the Claim button on a book, it doesn't make sense to have to rescan the barcode. Go straight to taking photos of the cover and copyright page to get your ebook and audiobook with just two steps!
• Book detail pages are now smarter and know what books you can buy, and which ones you can read or listen to right now!
Outside of claiming books, we've also done some design work:
• New, redesigned Navigation Drawer with pretty icons and 50% less reading required.
• New settings screen
• Added padding to all book cells in the app for a cleaner interface
And we added a super-secret way of downloading audiobooks to your device. Keep an eye out, this is coming soon!
Thank you to everyone who emailed in about bugs! The nasties we removed this update:
• Sometimes we would send you a notification saying you can get an ebook for free and then would insist you take a Shelfie. You don't have to take a Shelfie if you already have eligible books.
• Conversely, sometimes you'd try and buy an audiobook and we would keep pestering you to use your free book credit until you gave up. We value your right to spend money, so we've fixed the dialog to allow you to purchase audiobooks from your profile.
• We squashed a very rare bug that wouldn't allow you to buy an ebook or audiobook after claiming it. Go forth and read or listen to your heart's content.
• Pull-to-refresh now works correctly in the Activity tab, you can now obsessively pull on that view while you wait for something to happen.
As always, if you have any questions or feedback we would love to hear from you. Get in touch on twitter @getshelfie or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Awesome way to organize your library digitally within an app
This has got to be one of the best apps I've ever used! Not only can I use the pictures of all my bookcases that have shelves and shelves of books to know what I have in my library but the app can also scope out the books on my shelves and tell me if there is an Ebook for the book I own or an audiobook. I love to read but sometimes I buy books and never can finish them but with this app I can buy the audiobook of the same book at a low cost and listen to it in the day time when I'm in the car. I'm in the car a lot because I'm a sales rep so this app is great for helping me get caught up on my books that I've been meaning to read that are on my shelves but never got around to it. Genius idea to invent this cool app!
This app is just great for people who love reading. It can get your books into your phones and it has a really great networking system, so you can discover, share and discuss the books you've already read or would like to read. This app is tottaly worth it in my opinion.
Use it all the time
I won't read books without using this app. I find this is one of the best apps on the Appstore to find new books, it provides a wide selection of books to choose from.
