    Great to have, especially for free (I sorta wish I could pay $5 for a fully-developed version, but I suspect the developer is restricted by the open-source licence of the source code). As others have commented, it lacks some key features; for me, the buzz-kill is the inability to add comments. A bummer as I use this to create databases of books while I'm reading them. A work-around is to add comments on your computer via SCID or any of its variants. I had to do the following: Copy the 3 files associated with the database to my local computer, change the permissions, edit them in SCID or any of its variants, copy them back onto the Android device, then reload the database (for effects to be seen, one must load any random database and then reload the edited database).
