  • Suggestions

    Love this app so far. Three suggestions: Add a widget, the ability to change the app icon, and dark mode where it’s easier on the eyes. These additional features would boost my rating to five stars.
  • Life Saver

    By foliedeux$$
    Best app I’ve used in a long time. I have well over 1000 books in my personal library and I’ve been putting off logging and categorizing them. This app is saving me untold hours in organizing and classifying. Get it, you won’t be disappointed.
  • Great!

    Just what I needed for my really long and complicated To Read list!
  • Best app on my phone

    By Emccono
    The process of uploading my library has been a nice way to end my day lately. One shelf at a time and I actually don’t want it to end bc it’s been relaxing and meditative! I’ve decided I will upload my teens’ books (under their own categories) bc of course I’ve wondered if they have a book when I see a great one. I love the ‘condition’ field: I made one called ‘terrible, replace’ so if I see a better copy of a book it’s just a click away to see if I should bring it home. I love my home library and I love this app!! I asked about ‘original copyright’ date bc a scan will fill in the date of that specific books publication. I like to know the original date even more so for context...the after publications are not so important. They said that feature would be coming within the year.
  • Great app with better customer service

    By jc501
    This app is a must for any bibliophile with a personal collection. While GoodReads is nice for the social aspect of your reading lists, this app allows me to have privacy, manage my library intuitively and peruse my own collection easily. I love the flexibility of tags and how natural the app is to use. It is fast to add your books and the ability to track borrowing is convenient. But above all, I am beyond impressed with the customer service. They really listen to feedback!
  • Book collector must-have

    By lrebehn
    While I’ve only been using this app for a couple of days, I’m thoroughly impressed. After one too many “do I already own that?” incidents, I decided to purchase it to help keep track of my home library and so far it’s been a breeze. The data entry options allowed me enter and tag half of a bookshelf (around 80 books) in just a couple of hours. Also, a little side note for my fellow librarians: YES, it does have an “ignore prefixes” option for title sort. Hooray!
  • Great app

    By Meg2414
    This is a great app for cataloging your collection is books. After scanning a lot of my book collection, I'm still really liking this app. A big problem I had originally was no batch editing, but they have since added that option so I'm very happy with that. And they have finally added the option of decimals in series volume numbers!!! I can actually order all my series correctly now!!
  • Great App for book lovers

    By lvgps27
    App is very helpful to keep track of all my books, how long it took me to read them, when I read them, and where they are. My favorite feature is marking it as lent out and attaching it to a contact.
  • All book lovers should have this app!

    By Awair'nyss
    If you’re a book lover, you’ll love having your entire physical library in your pocket all times via this app! You can add books to your wishlist with a few clicks and a scan of the bar code with your camera. And if you’re unsure whether you’ve purchased a book already, BOOM! This app’ll tell ya (using the search feature)! I love being able to virtually sort my books by genre as well. I never have to worry about losing my personal library information because this app gives me several back-up options. I highly recommend this app!
  • Customer Support

    By Happy Readinf
    As a first user of this app, I had some issues with my initial import files from multiple sources. I contacted support and they were able to resolve my issues with my files. Their response time was excellent and very professional. I am extremely happy with the support and app so far. Happy reading!
