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.
* Create a personal library of books
* Information is retrieved directly from Amazon and iBooks Store
* Add manually (not via search), or SCAN BARCODE
* Snap picture of cover when manually adding book
* Includes charts of top books for all genres
* Book Genius feature (find similar titles)
* Touch link to view details for each book (and easily purchase)
* Entire library is locally saved/cached
* 2 different library views (grid and list)
* ability to sort the list
* share features
* export features
It's also a great help when friends and family suggest books to you and you never know where to write them down and eventually forget.
"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."
Improved register/login process so there will be no hiccups with your database.

Ratings and Reviews
The free *trial* of this app that allows you to scan a limited number of barcodes to show you how everything works, worked perfectly. So, I decided to pay the $.99 for the app. THEN once I did that, I was prompted to pay another $.99 for the barcode scanner. So, I did that too. THEN when I opened the app again to scan more books, the ones I’d already scanned disappeared. It gets worse. You see a list of tabs in the settings section but the only one you can click on is the one that takes you to literally pay for every single feature the app offers, which should’ve been included in the $2 I already paid. $5 for a CSV export, and $5 for auto input of the books details, etc. This is literally a rip-off app that baits you with a perfectly working demo, but then SURPRISE nothing works unless you pay nearly $20 for all the standard features.
Run, don't walk away from this app!
I purchased this app to keep track of my ever-growing book collection. It seemed like a great solution. I ordered most of the in-app purchases which was stupid on my part. In order for the app to be useful the database sync/backup in-app purchase would be essential. Here's where the problem began. In order to do this you need to authorize thru Facebook. I tried to do this repeatedly but the process went into an endless loop and wasn't able to be completed. There was supposed to be an alternate way to set-up the sync if you didn't want to or couldn't use Facebook but in actual practice this was never offered to me. I sent the author two emails and made one phone call to explain my problem without any response. Save your money and stay away from this program.
I tried to use the “Remote Sync” function to keep my booklist on both my iPad and my iPhone. It promptly deleted the books from each. I thought I had made some kind of backup by exporting the books as a CSV file before syncing. But then when I tried to open the CSV file that the app emailed me when I shared my library, I got an error message. So it apparently can’t import files that it exports. After purchasing a great many in-app purchases, it just doesn’t work. Amazingly disappointing.
I'm sorry to hear you're having issues.
