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.

Unrealized potential Great at first. Love how easily comics are added and labeled. But a lot of times after adding a new book, the ones already listed are rearranged into the wrong label categories. Please fix and I'll gladly change this rating

Easy to use. Quick way to keep track of my books and saves doubling up when buying 2nd hand books.

Great app wish it would share more info Excellent solution for a bookworm with evernote. But can it include more info than a picture when sharing with evetnote?

Awesome!!! Keeps my book list nice and neat all while making it easier to decide what to read next. The scan option for listing my books is also a big help rather than entering all the information by myself. Works seamlessly on my Nexus 5.
