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!
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.
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.
It almost meets all my needs... I was so happy to find this app! As a elementary teacher, I have a lot of my personal books mixed in with the classroom library and this app makes it easier to track where and who has what. The only downside is that the app doesn't have a way to track multiple copies. If this feature could be added, it would be perfect! *Update: it would also be great if we could link this to an email in case a device crashes like mine did. Now I have to completely reenter all of my data.
Great powerful and useful app! This is a great application, very intuitive to use and withwell designed functions for sorting my books, like custom categories and filters. The scanner is very fast, and it permits to continue scanning and collecting multiple books while it download data in background (other barcode scanners don't permit that). The uploading feature is useful for importing books on anobii or similar sites, now the only thing I need is an import function to do the opposite. Anyway, I find this app really useful.
