Description

The top ranked book database in the app store!! Books Category Top Paid 20 in 20 countries! Ranked in the iPad Books Category Top Paid 10 in 36 countries! iBookshelf is your personal portable library reference. A comprehensive book database, created and continuously maintained through extensive feedback from readers like you. Follow iBookshelf on Twitter to keep updated with new features and random thoughts from the developer.

** NEW ** Watch the demonstration video on YouTube! Search for iBookshelf.

iBookshelf is NOT an eReader. You do not load actual books into this app. Instead, iBookshelf is designed to help you keep track of your personal book collection, whether your books are physical or digital copies.

Books are displayed sorted by your preference. You can search for books in your library, and enter a "loan status" to remember who you loaned the book to or borrowed it from. A new book can be entered automatically (enter ISBN and remaining data is loaded from the internet) or manually. It will even tell you where you can buy the book and how much it costs and where you can find a library with the book!

Customer Reviews

So so app

Does not work great consistently. One day things scan I quickly and then the next I have to sit forever waiting to add multiple books. Freezes often. Sometime can't see the title to change it when it comes up wrong. If the wrong author comes up, you can't change it before you save the book or it won't save. Gotta save it then go back and fix the mistakes. If you scan multiple books and one of them is a duplicate, no matter what answer you give, it doesn't go back and let you save the other titles you scan. I always have to find something else to scan before it will ask me to save the rest.

works sometimes

I did finally finish entering all 583 of my books. It has functionality in that you can scan the ISBN barcode on the back of your books. Or you can enter in the barcode independently. However, after I got my books all entered it stopped working and I have not been able to get any response from the author. I can scan books but it won't save them.

It does have the ability to back up the entire thing to an XL file which is great.

Not what I expected

The scanner sometimes scans a total different book. Not being able to sync with other devices will make me look for another app that can make the same things but with the sync. Another thing I don't like is that you can't see the title while entering it manually and editing it is very annoying.
Not what I expected.
