    The barcode scanner doesn't work all the time, but it's generally my fault due to bad lighting or having barcodes that aren't the typical UPC. I would give it 5 stars but sometimes the information that is imported via barcode pulls up the wrong disc. I've already recommended it to others.

    Love how it quickly and accurately scans barcodes, adding the disk to the database, then searching later for the tracks, etc. I found that many of my CDs have no valid barcode (BMI; Reader's Digest), so those titles have to go in manually, a pain; app then does a pretty good job of finding and filling in the rest of the information. Maybe not giving 5 stars is unfair, because the problem is not
