    Great replacement for the native Goodreads app. It stores the database offline so you can check it when at the library or shopping. It would be even better if it offered a quick and easy way to mark a book as "I own it", which otherwise requires a lot of digging on the Goodreads website.

    I have an extremely large library as I read more genre of books than some people books in their personal library and now I can manage it VERY easily and prevent buying another copy of a book I already have....unless I want to in order to give copies to friends! With the barcode reader and the link to the UPC database, I can easily and quickly add a book to the book database in my CELLPHONE, so I will carry a checklist of what is in my physical library no matter where I go and it allows me to easily track who I lend my books out to and I have done that already and it is amazingly easy to do so! What a great app and kudos for open sourcing the code too!

    The best book library app out there! I have 1500+ books that I use with Goodreads. It's far easier to use then Goodreads so I prefer to use it and then sync it to Goodreads.

    Really nice app to hold library. What I'm missing: ISSN support, camera fails (on 7/Nougat), no synchronisation (just export/import)
