User reviews of Book Catalogue
I find both the bar code and isbn search work very well, making it easy to add most titles. My main reason to get this is to have my library in my pocket when I am in bookstores, to avoid purchasing books I already have; it seems it will work very well for that purpose. I have number of vintage books which will have to be added manually - this makes me wish there was a desktop version (for Mac) to sync with as adding 2-300 books manually on a phone does not sound like much fun...any chance of this coming some day soon?

It stopped working. Again. It lost my data. Again. Just not very good, but there is no alternative.

One of the best catalogue apps I've seen - however I can't seem to transfer my data to my new phone! Any help?
Aug 20, 2011
This is a great app. The only problem that I had was, that it does not find anthology titles with the search.

Great app but would love to get a list of books to choose from when searching by author and book title as it sometimes picks the wrong one up.

Great App Keeps a record of all the books I read so I don't ever have to wonder if I've read one.

Sharing This app is fantastic. Easy to use, and organises everything automatically, the way I would have anyway. One function I would really love to have though, is the ability to share or sync the information between my tablet and my phone - even if it were a pay to upgrade, would be totally worth it.

Best book catalogue application Every detail has been figured out. Customization at best.

Finally a decent book app! Used to have MyBookDroid. Have been looking for a good book cataloging app since and this fits great! Would LOVE if there was a "favorite quotes" with page number update...
