What's New in Version 3.3.5
Delicious Library 3.3 has been redesigned for OS X 10.10 “Yosemite”—it's now the hootinest tootinest shootinest library program in the west! In fact, this build ONLY runs on Yosemite. (Don't fret if you have 10.8 or 10.9—it's a free upgrade to 10.10, and your machine can handle it.)
• To fit in with Yosemite, we've “flattened” out the look of the app, because people love flat. It's where it's at. The titlebar is now flat, the footer is flat, the source list is flat, even our shelves are flat. We're so flat if you lived in London you could live in our app with your mates.
• If you want slightly fancier shelves, we've added simple painted ones in all the cool Ikea colors. And, if you liked the 3D wood shelves (and who can blame you, you handsome devil) they're all still there, too.
• Our Yosemite support is a work in progress! Please give us your feedback. We have ideas on how to make our app prettier, as well, but strangely Apple wasn't willing to delay the release of Yosemite for us to do everything we wanted to. The nerve!
• In 3.3.5 we've worked around a Yosemite crasher on 2009-ish Macs with NVIDIA graphics cards. But if you have one you don't get transparent title bars. Zut alors! C'est la vie! Vois tu les castors?
• Also in 3.3.5 we made publishing shelves useful again. Useful shelves are useful!
Although the primary focus of this version was to fully support Yosemite, we fixed some other bugs:
• There was a bug when you scanned too many items without a license, where we'd prompt you to buy the app and then crash. Not really a good sales technique!
• We fixed a bug with the custom fields we added in the last release, so they work a lot better with smart shelves.
• We made it so you can drag around the details panel by clicking anywhere in it and dragging, because duh, we should have done that a long time ago.
• We also made it so you can end editing in the details editor by clicking anywhere in it that's not a field. Also duh.
Unfortunately there's a bug we didn't get a chance to fix before Yosemite came out:
• We know some items loaded from the net are drawing as an inch high when they are, like, not. We have finally figured a clever way to fix this but we didn't have time to get it into this release, since we're trying to support Yosemite as soon as possible. Don't panic! Or do. I mean, it's your life.
Great library app
I have tons of books, movies, & music. I have moved three times in the last 5 years. This app is the only way I have any idea what I own or where it is. It’s also pretty and fun to organize but if you’re one of those anti-skeumorphic people, you’ll probably hate the wooden bookshelves.
It is easy to add titles to the collection, although I’m really glad they added the iPhone app because I don’t need to haul my titles to the computer anymore. I’ve found pairing my iPhone relatively easy but I have had trouble re-connecting after I’ve disconnected. I end up deleting the pairing and starting over.
There are some issues with this app, largely due to the fact that it’s supported by a three-person shop. The help and instruction documentation is rudimentary to say the least so a lot of useful features can be undiscovered.
I don’t particularly want my entire library on my phone but I would really like a searchable title/author list so I can avoid re-buying the same title.
Been using this app since it was an application
Keeps getting easier to use; the free iOS scanner app is much more reliable (and uses a lot fewer batteries) than the Bluetooth scanner I bought way back when. I use this mostly to keep a record for insurance purposes, so I don’t refer to it much (just keep adding to it), but it does seem to be flexible in how you view and navigate your library’s contents.
Way overpriced and not enough features!!
Boy, did I waste my money on this app! It is definitely not worth $25 and I’m mad at myself for even buying it. For such an expensive app, it is very bland with no syncing or iCloud support. I was able to scan barcodes in from my iPhone with their app for that, but the syncing to the computer was spotty, at best. I’m very disappointed in this app! Also, there is very little in the way of documentation or help. You sure don’t get much for your money! I won’t be using this and wish I could get my money back!
