Ratings and Reviews
For all modern collections, OK
I downloaded the Lite version as a way of checking out the full application. I own a lot of books without bar codes, or even ISBNs. But the search feature on Booxter seems limited to searching by ISBN or LCCN (Library of Congress Catalog number). As a result, 2 of the 3 books I tried to enter as a trial required me to manually enter title, author, etc. By contrast, Delicious Library allowed search by just title and got all three books correct immediately. Based on the fact that I have a lot of old used books, I couldn't really recommend this program very strongly. It would take me forever to enter my collection. What's nice is that it does search the Library of Congress (but again, only with numbers).
Very Nice App
Once I found the scan/video option to enter in my books, I filled the 30 book limit in a little over a minute. The flexibility in display, type of collection, items to search for, etc… all make this an easy to use and powerful personal cataloging system. If that is what you are looking for, you will NOT be disappointed.
Doesn't work or doesn't work well
I tried setting up a comic book library. After using the scan from camera funciton, I have 3 invisible comics in my library. All the same book. I can't see any books, but it assures me there are three in my library. Then I figured I'd give the program a fair chance and I also created a books library. It got the first book completely wrong. I was hoping this would be the app to finally help with my comics and was prepared to buy the full version if the Lite worked well. But it didn't. So… I'm done. Deleted. Moving on.
