Library is now free and open source! You can get the source code via git:
git clone https://github.com/cgogolin/library.git
I manage my library of scientific papers on my PC. I use Mendeley, but any other software that exports to BibTeX, such as referencer would also do the job. I keep the BibTeX file containing all the bibliographic information and the file paths of the associated files (mostly pdf and djvu) in a version control repository (I use subversion, but git should work equally well). This can be checked out to my Android Tablet using for example OASVN or your favorite version control client. Library allows me to conveniently browse my scientific papers and open them in a pdf viewer. Changes made to the files, like annotations for example can then be commited to the repository again.
E voilà, you have a fully synchronized and automatically backed up library of all your scientific papers right at your finger tips!
- You can store your favourite books in your own shelf.

- How to use scanner ?
First time running, the application will ask you to install an external application calls "Barcode Scanner" from ZXing Team. Once you install the external app, then you can enjoy the full features of ISBN Scanner.
Most School Districts and school PTA's will reimburse the cost of this app.
Upon scanning the ISBN or entering the book title: the Grade Level Equivalent, Lexile Measure, DRA Level and Guided Reading Level are provided, along with a picture of the book cover. Our app also provides a listing of local public libraries in your area that have the book in stock. The database of books that are leveled consists of 850,000+books and counting.
As an additional benefit, this app is recommended to parents to allow them to make informed decisions when purchasing "just right books" for their children.
Most educators are always looking for ideas to save time. This app takes away the cumbersome task of typing in each book title to use many random sources to level books for students. Users need to download a free companion barcode scanner app in order to use the barcode scan option. Our voice/keyboard title input option is the preferred and fastest option based on Direct user feedback.
It is user friendly and saves the teachers, parents & non-profits many hours when leveling book libraries.
Save time when leveling books or book leveling, and your classroom leveled library will be the envy of other teachers and your students will be leveled readers who can read Leveled Books.
It's simple, free, light, intuitive and easy to use, but with many features, all customizable.

###### Version 2 ########
This version now includes support for downloading, annotating and uploading PDF attachments.
PDF attachments are stored on your SD card, make sure you have one in your phone/tablet.
This is an advance feature and I highly recommend that you create a BACKUP of your entire Zotero folder before you begin. I will NOT be responsible for any damage/loss of data.
The instructions are as follows .....
*** On your Desktop ***
1) Install Dropbox on your Desktop
2) Open a DOS prompt (with admin privilege) use the command "mklink /D full_path_to_zotero_storage_folder full_path_to_dropbox_folder/storage & pause"
This link from the zotero website provides additional details on how to find your zotero storage folder "https://www.zotero.org/support/zotero_data"
3) This will create a symbolic link to your storage folder and sync all your files in this folder.
There is a script written by Mikko Rönkkö for his app ZotPad that automates the whole process. It automates the symbolic link create. The link is http://zotpad.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/103395-what-is-a-symbolic-link-and-why-should-i-use-one-w
*** In the Zojo Android app ***
1) In the settings page click the "Link Dropbox (To view PDF attachments)
2) This will open a new page, click "Link with Dropbox"
3) Give Zojo permission to access Dropbox folder
Once all of this setup is complete, you will now see PDF attachments in the items.
There will be three buttons "Download", "Open" and "Upload"
"Download" --> Downloads the attachments to your SD card
"Open" --> Will open the folder in which the PDF file exists. You can use your favorite PDF viewer to open it.
*** Make sure you have an android app such as ES explorer to browse through your folders. ***
"Upload" --> Will upload the PDF file to Dropbox
I understand this can be a complex setup for some users. If you have any questions feel free to email me.
