The LibraryThing app allows LibraryThing members to catalog and browse their collections. LibraryThing is focused on books, but you can add most media, including books, DVDs and CDs. LibraryThing relies on data from Amazon, and over 65 million library records.

Add books by searching for them or scanning their ISBN barcode with the camera.

Add high-resolution cover photos of your books with the cover editor and browse your books by cover type to find copies that need better covers.

Library is too limited...

My personal home library consists of hardback books, paperback books, DVDs, VHS tapes, CDs, etc. I would like to see the ability to add different categories in this app.

The BIGGEST issue I have had so far is the app dropping off entries. I scan and save an item but when I look for it later, it isn't listed anymore. This is becoming a huge issue as my library grows and I depend on this app to know what I have and what I still need.

Update: I had to delete all of our (~2k) movies out of LT, because the list was never completely accurate. I have downloaded another app to track our collections of everything but books. The updates that this app DESPERATELY needs are: ability to personalize categories, a loaned to tracker, and the ability to see more detail, such as whether a book is a paperback, hardback or ebook. Developers — PLEASE listen to your customers! We are willing to pay for a PRO version with these features!

Excellent, if web-based

This is *the* catalogue app for book nerds; the amount of data that can be entered is insane. I have just enough old/rare books that entering them manually in something like Delicious Library is a hassle; LibraryThing handles them all with aplomb. Also users of the mobile app apparently get a free unlimited membership, which is also rockin (if a bit worrying about how they manage to stay in business). I wish it was a bit more touch friendly when editing metadata, and had the option to cache my catalog offline so I can check it without needing service, but it works excellently otherwise.

Really like it!!

Love that I can keep track of all the books I own, especially because I don’t have the space to keep them all displayed!! The only thing I wish you could do was rename or add a category and also delete some if you don’t want them. Otherwise it’s great and so easy to use. Love all I have to do is scan the barcode and there it is, and also the light feature is great as well!! I just added 20 books in less than 5 minutes!!!!
