    Would give it a 5 but I have had to type alot of comics in. Barcode reader works great but out of 75 comics I have scanned so far only 1 was recognized. Still bar far the best app just needs a tweet or 2

    Love it, does what I need it to do, still hard to get it to find certain comics ( id say mid 90s and older, so have manual input) but still love what it does, im able to keep track seprate and catalog what I have so makes digging thri back issues at the comic shop easier

    Love this... Does pretty decent job... For barcode scanning I do the two part barcode scan but always type it in and usually works best in good lighting. Lot of customizing required to get parts of it to display how I prefer but compared to the other options this is the best out there
