I've been using Readerware on my PC forever and the mobile apps are a godsend for checking whether I already own a book, video, or recording. Email support is quick, helpful, and open to suggestions for improvement. In short, the cataloging software I've seen. A great feature is the ability, on the PC, to drag and drop Amazon and Audible URLs, especially for eBooks and audiobooks where there is no ISBN or ASIN to scan.

I am a Readerware user for a great many years however this app needs to be upgraded especially when it comes to scanning and search. I recently upgraded my phone and it came with Android version 10 and I can upgrade it to 11 but the scanning properties will not work with this phone at this time, I can however use the search and scan manually and that works just fine all bit a little bit slower to see if I have a duplicate in my library before I buy a book.

Any time my screen times turns, or I change screens from the Readerware, the list I was uploading vanishes and I have to rescan everything.
