    Add books to LibraryThing quickly using your phone camera.

    LibraryThingScanner uses the Barcode Scanner app to read the ISBN barcode from a book. Your web browser then opens at the LibraryThing add book page.

    Maybe it's user error but "bulk scan mode" doesn't work. Another reviewer praised the app for allowing him to login​ a book a minute: scan, webpage, search, add, back to app. That's a few hours for anyone with a large collection; I realize it'll take time no matter what, but I would rather be able to quicky scan all the books and then later use the universal importer.

    This requires you to download a scanner app that requires invasive unneeded permissions, like tracking you browser and device history and access to your contacts. Didn't even bother. Uninstalled.

    This app works quickly and flawlessly on my Nexus 5 phone.

    I'd love an official app from LT, but I would have been fine just having a scanner -- if it worked. Crashed instead of opening on my LG G5 :-(

    I've used other scanners with LT over the years and this is the easiest by far. I love it.

    It does what I need it to do, in that it finds the DDS number by scanning the barcode. Unfortunately the process requires so many steps and the Library Thing website is so mobiles unfriendly that it's practically unusable as a tool for organising books.
