I love the LibraryThing project. This app works reasonably well to scan barcodes to easily enter books into a collection. As others have stated, it's glitchy in that it sometimes enters the wrong book or enter duplicates. I also can't get it to add a cover image taken from my phone. It offers this feature but will not allow me to 'okay' the final image. It gets stuck there.

It does what it advertises that it does, as long as your book has an ISBN. As far a I can tell, you can't add a book old enough to have not been issued an ISBN, as they're is no option to add a book's information manually, at least through the app. There's also an issue of occasionally scanning a book's bar code and getting a different result, as well as adding multiple copies of the same book and having to delete them manually from your catalogue.

This app simply doesn't work. When creating an account it got hung so I closed the app and my account had been created when I reopened it. I'm not able to add even one book because it's displaying an "Error with authentication token combination" message. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app, I restarted my device, I wanted to like this app but it does nothing.
