Needs serious upgrades, including: * ability to add books by author and/or title without using barcode when barcode finds no results, which is more often than not *search/sort/filter by author and/or title *group by author, title and series *remove unused shelves *rename shelves so you don't have to create new ones *find more books & older books - it didn't find half of my JR Ward or James Rollins books, and found none of Shirlee Busbee or Rebecca Brandewyne *bulk add by author - find an author's list of books, and check all the ones you want to add to a specific shelf *add book club versions of books to results/db *refresh faster - I added books as quickly as it would let me, but it would only refresh when I closed app and reopened.
It's a good start but needs more. I like the idea, but it definitely needs more. I love that it can access my Google Books. I do wish that it was able to access my Kindle books as well. I'm finding that I have a copy of a book in both Google and Kindle which is not so good. If they could just access both then I wouldn't double purchased books.
Just What I Wanted I keep buying doubles of books I already own when I go to thrift shops and library sales. I have a literal home library so it's not hard to forget what I have and haven't got yet. So after making several dubious purchases "just in case" yesterday, I went looking for an app and found this. It isn't perfect, but it does what I want it to do. I had to download the barcode scanner--no problem--and then I was able to start scanning books. It was a bit of a pain to have to get into google to add a shelf for owned books, but nothing major. My biggest problem is just that so many of my books do not have barcodes or have ones that do not scan, so I end up having to type them in. I expected that though. So now once I get all of my books scanned I can take my phone with me and search my library if I'm not certain if I own a book or not. Just exactly what I needed! The barcode scanner needs improvement but I'm sure that's the fault of the scanner app.
Pretty Interface , but there's no way to add books besides scanning a barcode and you can't edit the book records.
Very nice if all your books have a barcode. Some books, even a few new ones don't have a barcode... There seems to be no way to add those manually.
Needs update I use to be able to search new books and add them. Now I can't add new books or switch which shelf they are on
