What's New in Version 1.92
Fixed crash in the Book Listing By Author screen
Update 5/25/15: Still no easy ability to tell if I own a book from main list screens. PLEASE differentiate books I don't own and books I haven't read using different colors and bold. PLEASE!
Love the way this app allows adding books, reporting by series, author, etc.
I've had no problem scanning bar codes or looking up by author or title. Works very well!
But, it really needs some way to know what books I already own. When in a bookstore, I use this app to see what next books to buy. BUT, I HAVE TO OPEN EVERY BOOK TO SEE IF I OWN IT.
Please add COLOR font and or BOLD font in reports. E.g. show books I already own in Black, books I want in Blue. Also show books I have read in regular font, books I haven't read in Bold.
Do this and it's a 5 STAR app!!!
(Own vs not owned is MOST IMPORTANT)
