* Search Amazon, Google Books, goodreads and LibraryThing for data
* Searching
* Thumbnails (download, gallery or camera)
* Loaning books
* goodreads synchronization
* Export and Backup

Want a wishlist? Just create a bookshelf called 'Wishlist' and start adding books.

This has worked great for years for me. A couple months ago something changed and now when I scan a book - it will not put it in the series it belongs to. If I manually choose a series, it will either not save that information or not show that book grouped with the other books in the series. I can recommend this app, but would love help figuring out this recent glitch.

Very unuser friendly. Every book I take picture of it rotates automatically sides and won't allow me to change it. Even when it asks if I want to rotate it. Back ground pic is too much. Tends to make it hard to read. On addition, very confusing to edit and add on the appropriate information. There is a better book app but unfortunately after 100 books it charges. Oh the days when greed wasn't the motivator and things were free. Oh well, delete this one it will be.

Amazing app. Easy to use. I just wish there was a version for the computer as well as a version for movies. Would make my storage and shopping so much easier. I tell all my friends who have lots of books about this app. Only down side is since getting a new phone, the scanner options don't work because they are made for older phones. But I can still search for the isbn or manually input the books so I still love it.
