When I changed from Note 4 to 8 I lost everything entered in this application. I had spent months moving things just to get to the books. The application is difficult when there are no authors. I have installed around 7 other apps and then deleted. I have also installed one other application. If it is not as good as this I will need to change this to 5 stars. If better I will leave at 4. This application has fields I require that are basic. Price is entered which I am able to increase or decrease. When looking at the same book I know that what I have is hard or soft cover or spiral. I will know the edition and condition. It also has shelf identification. Adding or changing photos is simple. It is common to have an already entered cover that does not match mine. I had a purchased inventory program that gave inventory value but this is free and even if having a purchase price would not detract from the excellence of this application. There is nothing missing that is available in other book collection/ inventory application. I went through every Play store offering. I read hundreds of reviews.
This app nailed it where other similar ones didn't. First and foremost, when you search , it picks up words in the description and not just the title. Secondly, it tells me exactly what shelf the book is on. The admin preferences were also more flexible here than other apps. The app tells you what bar code scanner apps to download. It worked like a charm. And if the book didn't have a bar code, you can put in the ISBN number yourself, or enter author/title and it finds it all for you. Worst comes to worst, you just manually enter the data. It asked me if I wanted to save to my SD card, which was good, too. I'm not sure, but maybe there is a cloud option, too. And this was free?! I loved it so much I donated $ to the developer.
This is not just a great app but a great free no ads app. If nothing else that would be great but the app really does do everything I want. Though be warned. If you automatically update fields it will take whatever it's reference source says and you can end up with some strange languages populating fields.
A few kinks but otherwise excellent. Has tremendously simplified cataloging. Avoided doing it for years, due to 3500-volumes, but now I pull out my phone at random and catalogue a few more books at a time. Often the details are already available. Editing of existing descriptions could be improved.
I may or may have exhausted all features of this app but it's serving me well, in what I need. However, for a very fickle minded person, would absolutely love to have/choose and personalize themes. Nevertheless, still love it. Thumbs up!
Good app but needs update. Need to be able to turn sound of scanning off rather than making people open the barcode app. It needs backup to cloud rather than phone like Movie Collection. Also option to scan 20 barcodes in a row like Movie Collection allows. Display of my books could be nicer. Search option should not be hidden in options but obvious. How do I delete the old backups of the databases sitting there? No option for it. Now I have 3 old backups Inwant to delete. Please UPDATE.
The application scan barcode and read all types of barcodes free
