Wish I could give this app 5 stars.
First the good. This app is attractive, flexible and has the potential to be great. I've been using I for over a year. Despite crashes and freezes I have never lost an entry.
Now the bad. It does not scale well. I had about 850 books, a few CDs, and maybe 40 games nicely cataloged and categorized on my aging 64 GB iPad 3. The wait time from re-reading the entire database almost every time anything is changed is mind numbing.
Batch changes are limited to 200 entries. That means I can get at the 1st 200 if I sort ascending and the last 200 if I sort descending. The middle 450 entries are not accessible.
The next issue is the crashes. This. App just quits or freezes all the time - sometimes on start 4 or 5 times in a row, then it will work. I did find that working multiple small libraries and frequently quitting and restarting significantly reduces crashes and freezes.
Help, manual, usage hints? They do not appear to exist. Problem reporting is built in, but out of 5 or 6 reports I got zero responses. Were they received, I don't know, so why bother.
My attempted solution to the above problems has been to split my library into many smaller libraries, each with no more than 200 entries. Ex. Books - authors A-G, Books - authors H-N, etc.
It does run a bit better on my wife's iPad Air 2 but still fails to scale well. All the great features are of no use without the ability to scale and stability.
I really wanted to like this app. I thought a long while before posting this as I know the developer has put a lot of work into the app.
I really do not want to scan all my books into another app, but it is time to move on.
