The LibraryThing app allows LibraryThing members to catalog and browse their collections. LibraryThing is focused on books, but you can add most media, including books, DVDs and CDs. LibraryThing relies on data from Amazon, and over 65 million library records.

Add books by searching for them or scanning their ISBN barcode with the camera.

Add high-resolution cover photos of your books with the cover editor and browse your books by cover type to find copies that need better covers.

Really like it!!

Love that I can keep track of all the books I own, especially because I don’t have the space to keep them all displayed!! The only thing I wish you could do was rename or add a category and also delete some if you don’t want them. Otherwise it’s great and so easy to use. Love all I have to do is scan the barcode and there it is, and also the light feature is great as well!! I just added 20 books in less than 5 minutes!!!!

Not complete

I just got this but can't use it. Without an ability to create non-default collects (such as "ordered"), the app is useless to me. And based on reviews (which I should have read first), there is an unknown limit to the number of books stored. The moment you exceed this limit, you have wasted every minute of time you spent entering books. A warning would help, or a notification that a book will be deleted (with a title), or even an archive function would be better than whatever they're using (I suspect FIFO). I will keep it around a little while longer to see if these 2 issues are addressed.

There is no limit to the number of books that you can catalog. Every user of the app gets a free lifetime account on LibraryThing.

Easy to use and invaluable

Anyone with a large collection of books should use this app. It is simple to use but powerful. It easily catalogs all your books and you can then make use of more powerful features on the website to explore your library. Most importantly, you can carry a database of your library so you don’t buy books you already own.
