    This app is a life-saver. Love the scanner and all the great sort fields!

    Barcode scanner will not auto focus. The "Barcode Scanner" app works just fine on its own and thru other apps that use it, so I suspect this to be an error between the scanner and this app. Without the scanner, this app is useless to me. (Update): Three updates later, the camera still won't focus, making barcode scanning impossible.

    I love this app. Scanning and custom fields work great. Only big complaint is that the auto lookup always pulls the wrong box art image. You need to manually search for the correct one.

    Love this app, but recovering the back up files doesn't work all that well, so I wind up having to rescan a lot of my items.... Which gets incredibly irritating.... Please fix this and you'll easily get a five star+

    My only issue is when I try to scan an item into the library it gives me an unexpected error. I'll give five stars if this is resolved.
