No Add by ISBN = Worthless App The only way to enter a book is by scanning a barcode and the barcode scanner is super unreliable. Out of the first 11 books I picked up off my shelf, one didn't have a barcode (old edition from the 70s) and only 3/10 that did would properly scan. Without a scanned barcode, your only option is to enter ALL of the information about a book by hand. There is NO way to search the database for your book. It's not worth my time to manually enter information for 70% of my collection. Without being connected to the database, I won't be able to use those books to gather recommendations anyway.
Great app Its the best app I could find. Tried others & didn't like them. I changed my rating because I found out you could search foe the book if scanning didn't work. All around really is best app.
Love this app but can suggest a few improvements. I have been able to keep track of all of my books with this app BUT I agree with the other woman who said that the app needs a way to keep track of multiple copies of books. My only issues are that you can't make changes to the order of the "Collections", you can't search for an ISBN number (if the book doesn't have a barcode or it has been covered, you have to enter EVERYTHING by hand), and that when I finally switch phones, there isn't a way to save all of the books to another phone or tablet.
Wonderful but could be better! I love this app. I appreciate that the app has its own scanner so I don't need to download a separate scanner app just to scan my books' barcodes. For books that have to be manually inputted, I wish there was an option to find/import the book's information & cover from the internet. Also, I haven't tried the lending feature yet but it looks like you can only lend to your phone's contacts? How about a manual name input option there? A version for the iPad to use in the classroom would be greatly appreciated!
Long Time User Loves This App! I have been using this app for several years and I have thousands of books organized through this free service. I couldn't be more grateful! I am a teacher, so whenever I am lesson planning, I refer to my books app to know what books I have available for the topic that I am teaching. Also, when I am book shopping, it is so easy to pull out my phone when I can't remember what books I have and don't have. Thank you!
Impressed I really like this app, is easy and quick however, I cannot make a "series". there is no logical way to create a series even though it is a feature!. There really isn't a help feature that has helpful information. I think it is in the right track and would love to see it becoming much better.
