What's New in Version 10.0.0
Fixed issue with sorting by lastname not sorting correctly.
Few other minor performance improvements.
Works great for me
I personally have had a good experience so far with this app. I have the desktop app too and I love the UX design for both. I think it is intuitive and nice to look at. It is really nice to have the data stored in the cloud so I can sync it across my devices. Scanning barcodes has worked fine for me for mainstream books, and the Google search works for ones that don't scan. I've only had to manually input once. The valuation feature is nice too, and will be useful for insurance. Overall I am very pleased with this app.
It would be great, simple format and easy to use...IF it actually worked. So far it has only found about 2 or 3 books out of about 30 books, using the scan barcode. They're not obscure or hard to find books either. I'm having to enter all the books manually, and seeing as I have several hundred books, that's a real pain and very time consuming. I was hoping after having paid so much for this app that it would work well. It has potential but the database is ridiculously small apparently. It didn't even recognize my Game of Thrones book.
Terrible Crashing App
So I thought I would take a chance and get this app--huge mistake! Ever scan came up "unknown" and it is constantly crashing!!! Seriously, it crashed at least 10 times in a period of less than three minutes. Hopefully an update will fix these problems but until it does, stay AWAY from this app!!!
