By Giacomo Balli
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Includes Barcode scanner to make adding books super fast!
"The ideal repository for book recommendations gathered from friends, reviews, and other sources, the app will locate the actual book cover and store it on its iBook-like shelf or as an entry on a list. The app can also access all the book titles, charts, covers, descriptions, and acquisition options in any of the iBookstores worldwide, Amazon, and the free texts at Google Books."
A simple and beautiful layout will help you keep track of the amazing books you come across.

"Every day you hear or read about a book that sounds interesting - and now there's an app designed to help track all those books recommendations," commented developer Giacomo Balli. "My Book List is the personalized book list of all the books you've been meaning to read, and those you've read."
What's New in Version 3.97
Many improvements requested by users in this update!
Offline support has finally been added. Now you will be able to see your books also when you have no internet connection.
Secondly, a feature to browse your book categories has been implemented. Simply change the category from the drop down, with an empty search filed and you will see all books in that category.
Finally, you can specify if you books you add should be marked as read or not, by default.
Exactly What I Was Looking For
I bought this app to manage my Kindle books. I really wish that when you hover over a book in Kindle that it would give you a quick plot of the book so I could be reminded why I purchased it in the first place. Though I had to start from scratch with this app and key in each book, I am proud to say that I love this app! I only have to click on a book in the library and I can get a complete synoposis of the book. Thank you guys! Would I change anything? Maybe one thing. I don't care for the fact that it marks everything as read and even when I change the setting, it automatically marks everything as read anyway! A small price to pay though.
I, too, have had problems with the scanner, but I find it easy to enter the author's name and then just select the book from the list that comes up. I wish there was a way to organize my books by either the Dewey Decimal system or the Library of Congress system so I could go to a topic instead of a specific book and could browse my own books as I browse in a library or book store. I don't always remember all of the books I have on a particular subject. Other improvements mentioned on prior reviews would also be good, but I still love this app even though it's not perfect. It sure beats trying to keep track of my books the old way!
Really this is pretty slick
I've really come to appreciate the book list app and I use it.
Sure there are a few improvements needed as listed elsewhere. But it does work as documented. I can enter my collection at home using my iPad. Then call it up for review on my phone while at the store. I've become very visual in my later years so having a picture of the book is great. Interfacing with websites is useful so I can read about what I've got.
A little clunky, maybe then write an app yourself. This is useful with responsive and conscientious support. Believe me I've paid more for less many times.
