What's New in Version 1.0.6
Minor Bug Fixes
It's a beautiful app. The pains taken with data normalization really pays off. There are some things on my wish list for this app. Both concern the file browser. I would like to see an Open With option for txt files that would allow me to open them with Notes or Pages. I would also like for the web server's port number to not change constantly. This is a really sweet tool for producing bibliographies, and these features would ease that. HTML or rtf exports of citations would also be pretty cool.
Nice look and feel - but...
I really like the look and feel of this app. Scanning books in using barcodes is pretty fast, but it seems not to recognize a fair number of my books. In those cases, the search tool typically finds them, so now I have over 500 books in my database.
BUT: the only way I have to get them to somewhere else (e.g. my computer) is as a database backup, which is unreadable by anything else. I NEED to be able to export the book catalog as a CSV file, and I’m extremely disappointed that the feature doesn’t seem to exist. Pretty much useless, and a big waste of time, without that.
Great App but needs support for OS!
It's disappointing that I apparently wasted all the time I put into archiving my collection as it appears this app will not be updated. I'm sure many users like myself would even be willing to chip in to fund an update. Please consider it. Thank you.
