    Absolutely love it However, I do wish it would show what book number it is in a series or at least in order.

    Didn't import ISBNs even though I created the import file exactly according to their specifications

    Just what I needed. The ability to synch between platforms is great and works well. Support has been friendly and helpful. If on multi platforms, you need to remember to set them up the same. Once that is done it synchs fine. I'm looking forward to future developments.

    Now that the app is revised, I can use the scanner I have installed. I suppose an app may specify ancillary apps. This app is excellent and easy to use. The export facilities seem OK; nice to have database stored in the cloud. One minor niggle: when a book cover cannot be downloaded and I manually take a picture of the cover, the photo may not be straight up and it cannot be rotated. Cover picture

    Having tried a few apps to scan my books, I found this one to be the best. It scans almost all books flawlessly.

    I really love this app! It has helped me so much in remembering which books I have or need so I don't get multiple copies. I do wish books starting with "The" like The Great Gatsby showed up under the the G (for "Gatsby") instead of T (for "the"). Overall it was definitely worth the $5 to buy the non-lite version!

    I've tried all the book catalogue apps but this one is the one that will be used for my collection. Beautiful UI. Easy to scan, good collating of information, very good customising. Syncs with dropbox perfectly. Downloaded to nexus7 as well, logged into dropbox and all the information was there instantly including the covers. Well worth the money if you have a substantial book collection.
