About this app

The Book Retriever Scanning App is the companion app for use with the web-based Book Retriever application. You must have a Book Retriever account to use this app. Note that if you have the original Book Retriever app, that account will not work with this new app. Visit for more information.

The Scanning App allows for easy entry of books into your Book Retriever account by scanning the standard EAN barcode for the 13 digit ISBN. It includes a Normal Mode and Quick Mode.

- Normal Mode allows you to set the number of copies you have for a particular book
- Quick Mode adds 1 copy and resets itself to be ready for the next barcode scan.

Important - Requires a device with an autofocus camera.

I like its ease of use but really dont like that i have to scan it in here and then go to the website to assign to a library. Wish i could see what i was doing while i was doing it or if you could scan through the website app

I understand some of the complaints, however, I thought it was clear that it's a companion to the web based program. We use it for our school. If you want to add locations you must have a school account. Ken at book retriever was very helpful in getting our school started.

I find this app better than book wizard as I can add books from different publishers. I find that it is difficult to assign books to a library. The app has an option to switch libraries but does not show the libraries associated with my account.
