Star Wars Books Collector
By White Husky Software
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Are you into Star Wars? Do you like to read or collect Star Wars books, comics, graphic novels, or reference books? Want to know what Star Wars books are scheduled to be out in the future but don't know where to look? Need to track all the Star Wars titles that you own? Are your significant other or children into Star Wars? Then look no further!
If you like Star Wars, you NEED this application!
This app contains information on over 400 Star Wars books - that's just about every Star Wars novel, graphic novel, and children's book published, and also includes many reference titles regarding the Star Wars universe. And - it does much more than just list out each book - it includes cover images, book details, back cover blurbs, and links to purchase any you're missing.
To personalize the app to your own Star Wars Collection, you can mark books as Owned, Wanted, or Not Wanted, and individually rate each book using a 5 star rating so you'll know which ones you'd recommend or like to re-read! If you tag a book as Owned, it shows up on your own personal bookshelf right inside the app, so you always know which books you own, right at your fingertips! Now you'll never be standing in your local book store wondering if you should buy that great graphic novel that caught your eye - just check to see if you already own it or if it's on your Want list - no more guessing about your shopping list!
Here's yet another cool feature you'll love - You can sort the lists of novels, graphic novels, children's books, reference titles, and your own bookshelf by the year that the story takes place within the Star Wars universe! Books are categorized by the number of years Before the Battle of Yavin or After the Battle of Yavin, and then grouped within Star Wars eras (i.e., Rise of the Empire Era, New Republic Era, etc.). This lets you see the whole Star Wars universe timeline from the beginning of the Old Republic Era to the end of the Legacy Era! Other sorting options include, by series, by title, and by release date.
Want to know when new Star Wars books are scheduled to be out but don't know where to look? Sort by release date and all the books with publication dates in the future sort right to the top - perfect for identifying which ones you still need to pre-order! And use the built-in link to pre-order right from the application! And since we love Star Wars as much as you do, when new book titles are release by publishers, an update will be made to the app as soon as possible to include the new additions.

We've worked very hard to include as many novels, graphic novels, children's books, and reference books in this app as possible. It's possible, however, we may have missed one you own. If you find one we missed, please email us the title, author, and (if you can), the ISBN number, and we'll get it added in an update.
What's New in Version 2.21
Sorry this update took so long! Promise to keep them coming sooner from now on! This update added several new recently released books as well as some upcoming ones. I'm also re-writing the app from scratch to take advantage of new iOS features, so that I can bring you some of the requests you've all been waiting for... so don't worry, this app will continue to be updated and evolve, just as the Star Wars franchise is evolving right now!
Very good app for Star Wars readers!
If you read or listen to Star Wars audio books, or even comics this app is very cool. It helps to keep track of new books, and has a detailed area to check off whether you finished or just own, or which type of book you have. You can give it ratings and skim through your library to find the next series to read. There have been several old republic books I found on this app that I didn't know existed. If you are an avid Star Wars reader this is a great tool. For future updates it would be nice if there 2 things 1. an option for the tab to say owned-not read or something like that and 2. The back button when going into wookiepedia takes you all the way out rather than back a page. Thanks for such a great tool!
Good app, but needs finishing and editing
Unlike, the others who said they didn't like the app because they couldn't read the books, I actually read the description of what the app was and wasn't under the delusion I could read all these copyrighted books for 99 cents. I bought it because I do collect the physical books and this is a good list and easy way to keep track of what I have and what I need. My issue is that it needs to have all photos of the books and many of the dates (ie publish dates) are incorrect. This app is only as good as the data. Therefore it needs an exhaustive list of all books (lacks many reference books) and all data must be accurate and up to date. Currently this is not the case.
Love the app
I've been using this for a while and it is so easy to use. Whenever I go into a book store I always have by books with me and I also use it to organize my bookshelf at home.
One thing which would be cool would be if there was a way to total how many are on the have list and want list. That way I don't have to count all of them while scrolling.
But that's not really important. I really love this app.
