When it works, it works great. But most of my mass market paperbacks won't scan AND can't be searched by ISBN. The "Add by Title/Author" feature and Add Manually feature are unreliable and time consuming, respectively. I don't quite regret spending money on the app, since it's a one-time fee, and I will, eventually, get all my books added, but I'm not as in love with it as I am the movie version.
I use the CLZ apps for my book, movie, and game collections and they are PHENOMENAL. I can't praise them highly enough! It has rescued me so many times from almost accidentally buying a book I already own. It's so easy to just scan the UPC to add to your collection (and you can scan a whole stack without stopping to hit "add" every time), or you can manually create an entry in the rare instance that it isn't in the database already, filling in as many or as few details as you care to. I love that you can mark when you've read the book, give it a rating, add a little note/review for yourself, and so many other things. The features are really thorough. You can even mark things "not in collection" (for example, a book you read but no longer own or had borrowed from someone else), or add them to a wishlist. You can backup your entries to the cloud for easy transfer if you get a new phone or whatever. The only downside is that you are limited to 100 items unless you pay to expand to unlimited storage, but I thought it was worth the price to compensate these developers for their great work.
I love this app. Before CLZ, many times I did not know what I had when I went out to buy books, comics, etc. Now I have the option of checking my collection instantly to prevent any purchasing mistakes. That is invaluable to me as a serious collector.
I really like this app. It's very helpful. I'm a teacher and this app is an easy way to keep track of the books in my classroom library. Sometimes scanner doesn't work and have to enter books manually. Would've been 5 stars if not for that problem.
I have had the desktop version for many years and now the mobile app and I love both. I don't know what I would do without them as I own thousands of books. This to be the best way to catalog them including ebooks.
Very simple. I just scan the book barcode and it's in my list, in alphabetical order by title. It doesn't have older versions of some books whose isbns have changed since the initial publishing but you can still find the book by author and title.
