Ratings and Reviews
Good, for the most part
I really do like this app. It’s a really handy way to keep track of your collection of media in an easy-to-find manner. I can also leave notes on certain items that let me know who is borrowing what. The ability to scan items instantly into my inventory saves a ton of time.
Some suggestions would be the ability to upload a picture to books that are entered manually, or so old they don’t have an ISBN and can’t be found in the database. Another thing that’s really annoying is whenever I change the content of something, after I do so, it scrolls all the way back up to the top of the list, making it so I have to scroll alllll the way down and find where I left off.
Just a few suggestions
I have been through several apps trying to find the perfect one for keeping track of my growing library. This app offers that and more with the option for music and movies as well. However, I do have a few suggestions:
1) Ability to add pictures to the books I do have to add myself
2) More than just two ways of sorting each library I make.
For example, to have the overall sorting be by author (creator as your have it) but then to be able to manually move titles so that I may place my book series in order underneath each author. Most of my books are series and many of my authors have multiple series but the title are all mixed together. I'd rather not have different libraries for each author (I'd have way to many).
Probably something similar to the movies to ensure series stay together as well since not all are just Title, Title 2, Title 3, etc.
That's really all! I do love this app and it's one of the better ones I've used! It's really more like 4.5 stars!
Potential to be great
A few things need serious change. Search categories, or even just the ability to jump to a certain letter without scrolling through the whole thing, are necessary. Image view as opposed to list view option would be good also.
As for the social, this has big potential if much improved. Allow friends to view one another's collections more simply, and to search our collective libraries (for example, I want to be able to search within mine and my friends' collections to see if one of us has something - with a single search). Also, why can I not view friend's collection in the app (takes to web)? A few updates could make this a really good app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
