Organizes my books
I love this app because it's great to have all my books organized by title in alphabetical order, at my fingertips!! Many times I'm ready to buy a book because it looks like a book I'd like to read, but this makes it easy to take a quick glance at this app to see if I already have it or not. Often I'm fooled by books when the book cover gets changed. All it takes is to remember to add all new books so I can take a few seconds of a glance to check if I have it or not. Saves me time returning books I already have saves me money by not buying books I already have :-)
After the first upgrade, things were different but after some time it came back almost as good as it originally started. There are still some tweaks that need to be done, but I'm happy the app still works for my needs!
It was great until I updated it. Then all the cover art I had was gone and now only have art for new books I add. Also, I emailed tech support with a question and NEVER received a response. I'm really sorry this isn't a better app as I really rely on my book database. I wish the owner would address these issues. Just recently found titles under author names who had nothing to do with the titles. Also had authors in foreign languages I never entered. Have written to the owner again, will see if any response. Love the app but if I can't rely on its integrity then it's of no use.
Worth every penny!
Love this app! I own and buy lots of books and this app keeps me organized. Love how you can scan barcodes to enter books into the app. Click on that title in your library and the app will automatically try to update missing info from Goodreads. You can also import your library directly from Goodreads with easy to follow directions. I recommend this to all book buyers/collectors.
