    Is ok as far as it goes, but is not ready for prime time. A search by ISBN, sorting alphabetically, condition field, first edition check box, all would be appreciated.

    The application works just as it should but [1] It's not easy to enter the information on books not in the system (since I cannot edit in bulk, it's very time consuming to use: entering the summary, series, authors) [2] most books don't have covers (makes the lists I've made very ugly). [3] I cannot add the book automatically to my wishlist as I have to save the book first then go to the wishlist

    There is no way to download this list to save and/or print. Also the scanning doesn't always bring up a picture of the book, even recent books, so I had to take pictures of each cover. It then stored those pictures on my phone and when I needed more space I found those pix, deleted them and now all my books have different covers.... goodbye codex hello BETTER app
