Ratings and Reviews
We bought this app to install on our staff cell phones as a way to track what books are in our small school (under 100 kids). I really like that we can scan them in quickly, can look at the covers when browsing, and that we can say in which they are stored via the storage option. Well worth $12 a year to finally have our collection managed.
Limit 10 books!
It gives a description that you can choose to have unlimited storage and pay $0.99 each month, but doesn't say that it's only 10 items before it wants to charge you this.
Waste of time
After ten books they expect you to pay .99 a month. Not worth it when I can buy another app for .99 flat rate that does the same thing except it doesn't have the bookshelf.
