Best of the book catalogs
I've tried several book cataloging programs, some of which I paid a lot for, but this is my favorite. I love the simple, clean interface, and I love the many features that you can customize. Yes, it's unstable once in a while, but I haven't found that it does any damage. I've even used the cvs backup to edit things easier on my computer and then reupload, and had success cleaning up the database. Note of these programs are perfect, but so far I'm very happy. I haven't tried uploading to goodreads yet, so that's the next big test. I'll come back and do an update when I get that done. 2500 books catalogued so far. I don't know how many yet to do...
Good Idea, Still a Bit Unstable
Been using this app for several days to catalog my 1,000 volume home library. I find I have to restart it about once an hour due to UI problems in the Authors section. Also experienced a small but fixable database corruption. I'm going to continue with it because it does what I want -- most of the time -- and I'm not in a hurry.
Some users have complained that their entries keep changing behind their backs. This is the work of the ongoing internet search function, which can be turned off in the Settings.
I love having book crawler. I read so much and forget what I have read. It comes in handy when I am at the library or the book store. I would highly recommend it.
