"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."

Verdict still out
I purchased this app to help me manage my class library after the first few scans you find out you have to pay more to scan unlimited. Hen after I get that paid for I start scanning and learn to purchase unlimited slots in my library I have to pay again. It sure would be better to just make it all inclusive since the app is no good without those two features. You have to pay one price to try it anyway so who wants to spend money on a trial. Heat should be the free light version. After paying for all the hidden pieces I have scanned a lot of books and it does look like I can export them. I would like to have more than just scan and save though since I am using it to track my classroom library
I downloaded the app this afternoon because it suggests it will sync with Zotero. I couldn't see a free trial so I paid $3.99 for the app. But now I'm only getting free trial functionality--limited books, limited scans. And by the way, scans that don't work still count against the limited number. Really? Still hoping, I then paid another $1.99 for the ability to export to Zotero but even though it says it installed successfully, I'm not getting it as an option. So far, I've spent $6 for an app I'll likely end up deleting anyway because it doesn't seem to work. I only gave it 2 stars rather than 1 because I'm still hoping something will magically fix itself somewhere. But the nickel and diming is ridiculous and I shouldn't have to work this hard to use the app on top of it.
Very useful app
Using this app to catalogue our library of about 1,000 books. It is both cost effective and has every possible feature you could need. I couldn't figure out how to do a certain feature and the developer emailed me back within 10 mins with an answer to my question. Great app!
