Shelf Life for iPad is an easy-to-use program for anyone that wants to manage information about books that they’re interested in.
Shelf Life allows you to keep books in three different categories: -
The Wanted list holds details of books that you don’t yet have access to (perhaps they haven’t even been written yet, but you know it’s on the way). The Reading List holds details of the books you’ve got queued up to read, you either own them, or have them on loan from the library, it doesn’t matter.
Finally, Finished books are those books that you’ve finished reading.
- Capture Title, Author, Genre, Series Number, Series Name, and Release Date information about your books
- Add books to one of three lists: Wanted, Reading List, Finished
- Flag books that you're currently reading
- Standard reports including a summary of your books and top 10 authors and genres that your books revolve around, as well as each list
- Search your lists for books based on a variety of criteria (Title, Author, Genre, Category, Notes)
- Produce a custom report based on your search criteria
Shelf Life for iPad is NOT a cataloguing application. It is designed for people who read books, and want to keep track perhaps of a series, especially where the series isn't complete, and so the title may not yet be available in online wishlists.
Shelf Life for iPad can import data from the Mac version of Shelf Life, but the two apps do NOT provide any regular syncing functionality. They are designed to be used individually.
Removed spellchecking on Title and Author fields
