  • The best app of its kind!

    By UsborneAmy
    I just used BookBuddy for five minutes and I am in LOVE! It is so easy to use, and you can try it for free up to 50 books. I’ll definitely be going to Pro version when I get to book 51. It’s only five bucks! Plus, I can feel great that all my data will be safely backed up in my Dropbox. I am over the moon! Oh, and EVERYTHING can easily be done from my iPad or iPhone. I am seriously excited over entering just one book in there to try it. What took five minutes was trying to stand still long enough to show my family my new lovely thing!
  • Brings organization to something hard to organize.

    By NorthDakota999
    This app has been useful in organizing my reading collection. I mostly read professional or work-related books and lend to co-workers. I have a collection that’s half on my Kindle and half read books, with about 30% that overlap. I can track who has what, take notes/comments (especially useful for books not on Kindle). Having a better way to add Kindle items would be useful, as well as tracking those items. I’m using the tags feature. There is a format; however, for the 30% overlap, this was not working well.
  • Love this app

    By booknerd 2
    I really enjoy this app. It is truly a great way to organize my home library (I have over 1000) books. The only complaint I have is it doesn’t or I am not sure how to have this available in both my iPad and I phone with all of my book information. The app contains a way to log books with locations and list books in series which I find amazingly useful.
  • Couldn’t have done it without this app

    By volunteer librarian
    I live in a senior apartment building and am the volunteer librarian. I now have over 2,000 books and have been able to Inventory all of them by area of the library where they can be found. For example, they are divided by large print, paperback, hard back, biographies etc. I couldn’t have done it without this wonderful app.
  • Works like a charm!

    By WanderMisr
    This app fits by needs by far. It can catagorize books by, name, price, publisher, etc. The app gives you unlimited amount of books in you personal library. The best benefit of this app is the barcode scanner. It can always find the name and other information about your book just by scanning the barcode! If your book can't be scanned, they even give you a little internet to search for your book. If it isn't on the internet or it can't scan on the barcode scanner, you can add it manually. I only had to do this once for a local book I bought. As you might see, I did take off a star. I took of this star just because it costs money. I don't think it is necessary to cost money. Newsflash, you're not going to make a lot of money with this app! They even have a free one that I originally had, but it only let you have forty books in your library. Guess what?! They didn't even tell you about the forty books only rule. Consequently, when I had took my time to scan 40 books, it shut me off! Telling me only 40 books! Anyways, that is their problem. The rest of the app was really good, if I could I would give it a four in a half rating. But now I'm happy to give it a 4 out of 5 star rating!
  • Great app and prompt service

    By Omelygolf
    I have purchased other book inventory apps but didn’t use any of them for some reason. I purchased the Book Buddy Movies and Music and love the Book Buddy. Haven’t used the other two yet. A couple of days after I purchased the app, had a question about adding location field; I emailed the web site in the middle of the night and within half an hour or so received a detailed satisfactory answer from them. I am happy with the app and the service.
  • Great app

    By Not so intuitive
    I love this app and find it very helpful in keeping track of my reading. I occasionally don’t finish a book and would like to have a Reading Status that indicates Unfinished. Is this possible?
  • Almost perfect

    By V713321
    Honestly this app is so close to perfect. It has so many important features, a place for dozens of fields, and custom options including notes. But it really needs a way for you to pick a random book from your library. People with large collections need a way to decide what to read next. I have a similar app for my movie collection and it allows you to simply shake your phone to pull up a random movie. I use it constantly. Would love the same feature in bookbuddy+.
  • Needs streamlining

    By Torioreo92
    I love the concept of the app, but there are definitely some streamline changes to be made (too many clicks to get to changing the status-reading the book is the only purpose it serves, so it should be as easy tapping a toggle next to the name of the book) & some feature I'd like added. There needs to be a way to put a book in two categories-I'd love to keep my books sorted by genre or author while also having a list of current reads or TBRs. The developers said I should use tags for this but that takes too many clicks and is hard to find too, you can't see how to add a tag to a book without clicking edit first or if you try to add a book to the tag itself, you have to rescan it- you can't just add it from your list of books already in the app. Also, I knocked off a star bc the developers were a condescending I their reply to my previous use, I know how to use the app, thank you very much, I just think it could be streamlined.
  • Great app

    By sgott1097
    This is a great app. I just bought it and spent 2 hours at my bookstore loading books to my wishlist by scanning the barcode. I would give it 5 stars but as yet I have not been able to sort my series lists by when they came out or in order by how the books fit in the series without scanning them that way. If I could scan them all and the move the book into order then I would give this app 5 stars.
